We're Back!

We're back from our trip to Tucson and our first Turkey day in the US. We had an awesome time catching up with Pete, Maree & Brendan as well as Rachel and Tony who flew in from Washington DC. Maree cooked a fantastic turkey dinner with all the trimmings (I'll be paying for it at the gym this week).

While we were in Tucson we spent some time in the great outdoors and visited Sabino Canyon and the Sonora Desert Museum. The trip was topped off with a visit to Pinnacle Peak for a drink in the saloon and a great steak dinner. The drive was quicker than last time due to the short cut between Hatch and Demming so the trip only took about 6 1/2 hours. It was still plenty of time for knitting and I managed to finish a scarf and a pair of mittens (photos to follow). I guess the only downside to the trip was the car starting to fall apart! We noticed a grinding sound on our way into Tucson and when we stopped to investigate, found that the plastic guard under the bumper was dragging along the ground. We taped it up with packing tape for the trip home and it survived. Poor little car!
