... Go out in the Arizona sun

Sedona Trip Day 2

My dentistry misadventures in Algodones are on hold till Wednesday. Then they will scrutinize whether I've healed enough to proceed with my implants.

In the meantime my pardner (Rose) figured a trip to Scottsdale (AZ) for a couple of days was a nice idea. So ... off we went, scampering across the desert, for a 6 hour drive from Yuma to Scottsdale.


Made a pit stop in Dateland ... kind of an oasis gas station/restaurant/shop. Bought some sunglasses and a chocolate date milkshake. Pretty good.

The Zona

Got lost in Scottsdale ... couldn't find our hotel: The Zona.

Finally found it after driving around for a hour or so. (Scottsdale is big ... and confusing.)

The Zona is a nice place - 4 swimming pools. And modestly priced.

Scottsdale Botanical Gardens

After we got settled in Rose wants to go for a drive around and see if we can find a place called Scottsdale Botanical Gardens. Doesn't sound like my cup of whisky but ...

... what a wonderful place !! Far exceeding my expectations. It's very large and has an excellent restaurant. Saw lots of wild life there too: hummingbirds, rabbits, quail, lizards, several other species of birds - and plenty of interesting plants, cactus,  flowers ... Recommended.

Alright ... back to the pool and hot tub to close out the day.
