Tucson, Arizona Or St. Croix, US Virgin Islands

I recently spent a month in Tucson waiting for a travel nursing job that never happened. Any one who works as a traveling nurse - avoid Nightingale Nurses LLC like the plague - they left me in the desert with no job and no pay! BUT! I did have a car an camera so went touring. Lots of cactus and sand. Quite by accident I found this beautiful oasis complete with palm trees, bull rushes and little ducks playing in the water. With the mountains in the background it was fantastic.

While this was a beautiful and very unexpected pleasure in the desert just outside Tucson, I have to admit, I'd much rather be home in the Caribbean on St. Croix, US Virgin Islands, hanging out on the beach.

Small world!! I live near your found oasis in Tucson and have spent many hours there photographing families. I do however spend time on St. Thomas and St. John with a prior traveling nurse who went there and never left!! Looking forward to my next caribbean trip with new digital camera as I recently moved from film to digital.
Thanks for the refreshing memories of the islands through your portfolio!!
