We try to avoid doing too much on Saturdays since we like to leave Saturdays to the locals. But we have done so little sightseeing lately we just decided to give it a try.

After breakfast and showers we were ready for lunch. We decided on Big Tex BBQ

But when we got there it was closed for remodeling. So instead of there, and instead of where the locals eat, we decided to eat where the truckers eats, Country Pride Restaurant in the Travel America TravelCenter. Turns out a lot of locals eat there because the place was packed. The food was really good, Jo got the chicken and dumplings and Bob got a chicken breakfast with a whole green chile on the top. We also checked out Apple Annie’s Country Store which is in the old Stout Cider Mill location. Never had the pies before but Annie’s apple cranberry pie is sure good.

After that we decided to head to the Rex Allen Museum

Guess what it was closed too. Not to be deterred, and since it was a short walk we walked to the Friends of Marty Robbins Museum and it was closed due to a family illness.

In our defense all these places should have been opened on Saturday. It wasn’t a total bust though, we walked through the oldest continually operating store in Arizona that had a neat display on the history of Willcox. We then walked to the Rex Allen statue.
