We spent the day in Tucson with our friends, Don and Eileen. Most of the day was spent exploring the Pima Air & Space Museum (Len will be doing a post on it shortly). Afterwards we had lunch at one of their favor spots, Beyond Bread. Great sandwiches, salads, a wide variety of speciality breads and many decadent desserts. All very reasonably priced.

We were a few blocks from their church, St. Philips and they wanted to share the beautiful structure with us. St. Philips is a 1936 mission style Episcopal Church. It has beautiful courtyards, breeze ways and sanctuary with many colorful stain glass windows. The Sanctuary has beautiful artifacts from around the world. There was an organist practicing during our visit and the organ pipes added an amazing feel to our tour. The 12 foot arched window behind the alter looks out onto the desert garden and the Catalina Mountains in the background. Simply beautiful! I can see why Don and Eileen enjoy attending here. It has a very peaceful and welcoming feel.
