New Orelans, Our Big Farewell

There is no better place to spend a final evening together than New Orleans.  After checking into the Hilton Riverside we walked a short distance to Bourbon Street.  Our final dinner was held at The Bourbon Cowboy on Bourbon Street, while we listened to an entertaining piano player. Everyone sang, danced and had a blast! 

After dinner and dancing we walked down Bourbon Street and then allowed the group some time down by the River walk to say their good byes.  It was a truly emotional night.  A lot of lasting friendships were made on this trip!

San Antonio, The River Walk

While in San Antonio we went to see the IMAX about the Alamo and then actually walked over to the Alamo together.   After, the group enjoyed free time down on the river walk to explore and enjoy some of their last time together.

El Paso, Carlos and Mickeys

Texas, we're here! For our stop in El Paso we go for a nice authentic Mexican dinner at the famous Carlos and Mickey's Restaurant.  Because this is our last dinner with our fearless driver,  Al "The man" Johnson,  as a group we gave him something to show him how much we appreciate all that he has done. 

Desert Museum, Arizona

When we wake up Friday morning at the resort we load the bus and head to the Senora Desert Museum just outside of Tucson.  At first, everyone is a little sceptical, but after we got there and they started seeing the desert they really enjoyed it.  It was a cool morning for Arizona so all of the animals were out for us to see.
