Yesterday we moved to our new camping spot at the Davis-Monthan AirForce Base FamCamp. We were number four on the overflow list, so we were fourth in line to pick a spot. When it was our turn, three of our four top picks were already taken -- but the one left was our first choice.
We are now in a big space that has it’s own little desert garden right outside our door. All I need is a rake so I can do the Arizona equivilent of gardening: rake the gravel.

|At the end of our "street" are planes at the Air Force Base's storage area or "boneyard."|
|This afternoon we went to the Tucson Botanical Gardens. It was originally the home of the Porter family, who raised their family and built a nursery there.|
|The Botanical Garden included a tropical butterfly exhibit. If you look closely you can see a butterfly on Jim's cap. Several butterflies tried to leave with us, but a volunteer with a feather duster was there to brush them off.|
