Saturday & Sunday

This is Rodeo Drive in Rocky Point....something to behold, isn't it? They have dug down about 3 feet or more in order to put in a paved road to all the time share resorts that are being built but it is a sandy mess.

I felt really sorry for some of the small "stores" because normally, on a Saturday, the place would be packed but it was like a ghost town. The road is supposed to be finished in August.

I laughed every time was saw this sign. I guess Starbuck's logo is ubiquitous, wait, that is exactly their logo but close enough.

The border crossing wasn't bad. It is sad to see the poverty in Mexico....the hawking of "stuff" has risen to a big line of people, women, children, old blind women, men selling everything on the side of the street as you wait to cross the border.
One of my favorite parts of the drive is our trip to Organ Pipe Cactus National Moment. You have never seen so many saguaro's in one place!!!
Ok, you have probably noticed there is no knitting photos. Well, I knit all of 4 rows on Icarus. The road between the border & Rocky Point was too bumpy to knit lace as was the road from the border to Gila Bend so I just knit a little in our room and read a lot of books.

I'll finish it one of these days.
