|Capital of “crystalology” and according to some the center of the spiritual vortex of the universe, Sedona, Arizona, is a beautiful tourist town surrounded by multi-colored mesas of reds and whites. Anchi was particularly interested since he has been making jewelry with spiritually aligned gem stones.
We spent the day, which was balmy in the high 80’s, wandering through the many art galleries looking at beautiful artison things ranging from blown glass, to ceramics to Native American jewelry. William was particularly interested in one store that specialized in Native American baskets and rugs.
The highlight of Sedona, however, was the new friends that we met in the RV park. We have always heard that RVer’s are a particular friendly bunch. Chris and MaryEllen Halm are two retired teachers who have been on the road for about two years now. We immediately hit it off with them and spent two wonderful evenings sharing stories and getting acquainted. As we parted, we felt that we were old friends even though it has only been two days. We do hope to stay in touch. We have met several folks who make traveling around in an RV their full time lifestyle. We are having so much fun that we are trying to figure out how to make this work for us, also. Part of the fun is the freedom that comes with having less belongings. You are fairly limited with what you have in the RV… although Europeans would laugh at this and say that when Americans travel in RVs, we still take too much stuff. They “RV” in something akin to a small VW microbus.
