Art Car Caravan to Douglas- Last day

Day 6

Today was a day for exploring Douglas. This town was huge in the mining days, from the 2o's to the 50's, and the reminates of urban entertainment are everywhere. There is a theater that fits 1500 people, now in major disrepair with a missing roof, a handful of huge hotels, and a long main street with shops all the way down.
We were able to see the inside of one of the hotels that is now a private residence. Everything was from the 30's and in pristine shape. We also went to see a friend of a friend's house further out in the desert that is made to look like it's built into a rock.
Then we walked to Mexico for diner. Mexico is about 5 blocks from Art Car World.
Back at Art Car World we painted Shalom and Marilyn's car and watched Harrod play with his rooster.
Tomorrow I leave with Philo and Joanne. We're gonna check out some caverns with stalagmites or stalactites or whatever.........
Then we are back in the Bay Area on Saturday.
I think this will be my last post for the Art Car caravan trip.
Thanx for comin along for the ride!
