Terrific Tucson

I've never really liked Tucson that much.  I don't know why.  Maybe I associate it with knee surgery and Dr.'s when I was only fifteen.  The age I should have been having the most fun.  Anyway, this is a much better way to see Tucson, at a nice resort.  Phillip had a golf tournament there over the weekend and he invited me to go along.  This is the Omni Tucson National Golf Resort and Spa.  It's truly one of the nicest places we've ever stayed in.
I love how Pioneer Woman takes pics of the hotel rooms she stays in. This hotel is small and spread out.  Above is the sitting area and entryway.  Below is the vanity and that door opens to a humongous closet, like someone could sleep in there comfortably, humongous.
The bath area was pretty much to die for.  On the opposite end was the toilet and shower.
And this is the pool area where I may or may not have lounged and sipped on lemon ice water brought to me by a pool attendant.

And this is the view from our room of the Catalina Mountains overlooking the driving range.
We also went to an authentic mexican restaraunt at the insistance of an overly enthusiastic concierge.  And we're glad she insisted.  This place was great.  A woman makes salsa fresh at your table to your liking, and mariachi guitar playing singers roam around and play at your table.
It was only a 24hr. trip but worth every minute.

So get out of town once in a while and give your marriage a shot in the arm.   Why not Tucson?
