|Day 6 May 29, 2015: Visit with Barb, Sedona and Montezuma Nat’l Park
Just another beautiful day to wake up to 59 degrees, and wispy clouds. Leona took a short walk around the park while I tried to get onto the internet with no results. They told me upon check in that the internet is sporadic. Well it was nil, nada, nothing, #@%&)$%#@#%%^!
We realized something today that we didn’t know yesterday. When we left Munds RV Park the day before, I had programmed Rancho Verde RV Park into my GPS. The pictures of the park were just beautiful. As we approached the park there was a sign pointing into a park entrance, but I told Leona that the GPS was telling me to continue on a few hundred more feet. Well I lost the battle and pulled into the lot and went in to sign in. I had made reservations but they didn’t have them, so they made them then. Today we realized that we were at Camp Verde RV Park, not Rancho Verde which was a few hundred feet further up the road. Just think we could have avoided the Mulberry war if we just followed the GPS.
Yesterday we made arrangements to meet Barb in Sedona today, she had a doctor’s appointment and then we’d go out to lunch. We took Barb out to lunch at Oak Creek Brewery and Grill in the Tlaquepaque Plaza. This was such a beautiful place to not only have lunch but to peruse the numerous shops spread throughout the complex decorated in Spanish style architecture.
After lunch and a walk through various shops, mostly jewelry and art, we took off to get to some of the rock formations in Sedona. This place is beautiful, I could have stayed all day and done some hiking to explore and get more angles of site to photograph.
We dropped off Barb back at her car and took off to see a couple more view points and then onto Montezuma Nat’l Park. This park is an amazing story of how the Indians built and lived in caves they constructed on the side of a cliff.
If you’ve ever been to this area for a visit I’m sure you’re familiar with the Round Abouts. I can understand maybe having a couple here and there, but they’re just about one every other block. Barb said it slows the traffic down. I call them the run arounds because that’s what I felt was happening to us, we were being run around. It’s almost like being in India or china or some other country that it dog eat dog or survival of the fittest. I’m Top Dog today, I survived.
Our new camp spot is good compared to the two we were in yesterday. It pays to check them out thoroughly before dropping the trailer. No one said I was the smartest cookie in the jar, but I learn.
We have one more day before we head out to continue our trip to Texas. We’ll spent some more time with Barb, probably the last time they’ll see each other and it has been fun.
Good night, lights out,ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
