  1. Visited all of the lovely homes (some old & charming, some newly renovated and very fancy) on this tour, along with a colorful garden and front porch area. Also stopped by Catalina Methodist church for a visit and some refreshments. Lots of people on this tour today, enjoying the cooler Tucosn weather. Next tour will be Spring 2017.
