3:10 To Yuma

Actually, we arrived at Yuma Lakes before 3:10, but it seemed an appropriate title. After breakfast, we went into Ajo to go to the 10:00 Mass at the lovely Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception church:

Very traditional, with the guitarist/singer behind a wooden screen behind the altar, and the servers in soutanes (robes for you non-Catholics). The servers and readers were all Hispanic or native children, and the priest was African, who spoke with great passion; unfortunately, we could only understand about 1 word in 7.

After Mass, we fuelled up for the uneventful 2-hour drive to Yuma, with one stop at another Border Patrol facility. After getting settled in, we went walkabout, then spent a couple of hours at the pool. This was a nice way to end the day:
