We are in Tucson until Tuesday. I’ve posted a few more pictures of the house, a few pics from the Tucson Celtic Festival, and a few more critters. You can click on any image to see a larger version of them. The largest images are at the bottom.
This will not be our permanent home. We will be renting until we can find a location that we really like. It’ll give us time to be thorough. Tucson is a great buyer’s market, but terrible for the sellers. More people in Arizona are upside down on their mortgages than just about any other state.
We are very lucky to be able to stay here. You can click on any of the images for a larger version.

This is my Gaelic teacher’s grandson. We ran into Muriel and Cole at the festival. He definitely looks the part of a little Scottish boy.
There were a lot of critters around both the house we will be renting and the house we are staying at in the foothills. This is a Desert Cottontail. I think the abundance of wildlife had more to do with the absence of coyotes which I’m sure were around but not as plentiful.
I guess Gambel quail just don’t like photographers. Here’s another trio running away. Maybe they were celebrities in a previous life and had flashbacks to being hounded by paparazzi.
I think this is a Gila Woodpecker.
Last shot. A Cactus Wren.
