Just a little south cont.

Time to head a little further south to our final desination......
 Tubac Golf Resort and Spa

What a beautiful, historic place this was. Originally owned by a Mexican family for over 140 years and many of the buildings renovated and still being used like this BEAUTIFUL restaurant...

 
that was originally the stable. I loved this place just look at the floor...
 
The lighting...

The bar was rather quaint too...
with the wall of old sombrero's and the saddle stools (too bad no one got a picture of hubby and I straddled on these...on second thought it might not have been too pretty).

All the rooms were casita's and like the rest of the place they were beautiful...

With the rich Mexican colors...

But the top of it all was the grounds.....
 Unique lighted walkways that lead throughout
 

fountains and fire pits


 and in the middle of the property were shops and some original silo's (didn't get a picture) and

 huge tree's
 
 
cattle grazing in the middle of the golf course...
 
Special outside dining
 
 something to catch your eye everywhere you looked
 
 
How about this wind spinner made out of bicycle fenders.
 
They were having a hot air balloon event  and we saw them starting to set up...

and what a sight at night...
 
I walked up to one to take a picture and right when I did he gave it the gas..

They had a great band playing...


Just wished it would have been in a area where you could dance......
 
and to top it all off....the service was great and the food was awesome!
 
Slept like a baby and in the morning we walked hurried to the restaurant for breakfast (It was only 37 degrees outside) and it was just as pretty as it was before....here is a few more views..........
