Bisbee is 90 miles outside of Tucson, our hometown. It sits higher in elevation than that of Tucson therefore it has cooler temperatures year-round. With Tucson being over 100° this busy trip seemed like a rather cool (in every sense of the word) trip. The community of Bisbee was founded in 1880 as a mining town. In its heyday it produced gold, copper, silver, lead, and zinc all from the Mule Mountains. The beauty found in Bisbee is amazing. After about 1975 when the mines became unprofitable Bisbee evolved into an artist colony and retirement community. Local art can be found everywhere and it's awe inspiring. As a not so creative person I often wonder how artists "see" beauty in their own minds first then create it with their hands. It's so amazing to me. I suppose one could ask how I cook, my own form of art. I see that as simple comparatively speaking.

|My little one, on the left, met a friend who was very intrigued by shoes.|
|It seemed as though this little girl did not encounter other young folk to often. She was very friendly!|
|Highly recommend this restaurant!|

We found some rather fun things around Bisbee! One of my favorite shops was Va Voom! They had the coolest zombie stuff, skeleton things, and random old collector type items. I could have bought everything!
|Not only did Va Voom have posters they had t-shirts as well!|
|See the hubby taking the picture? :) So cute!|
|I cannot name this car! Can you?|
|I have a VW Beetle so this just makes me smile!|
|She had so much fun!|
On our way back the skies filled with clouds once again lending itself to an amazing sunset!

Cheers and happy eating!
