Now lets go back to the beginning of the day. We headed to Phoenix this morning for a visit with Aunt Brenda and Don. They spend the winter in Mesa at a real nice park on the eastern limit of Mesa called Viewpoint RV and Golf Resort. They have a nice park model with everything that snowbirds need to survive the winter here. The park has a swimming pool which is kept quite warm so I love to head to that one. We spent a couple hours there talking and floating around.
We had a short wait for our table so because it was a nice evening we sat out on the deck waiting to be called.
Outback is the home of the "Bloomin Onion" so of course we had one to share followed by a good steak supper. One of the things I noticed around Phoenix is the explosion of colour as all the trees and flowers and even the weeds are in blossom. I am not much of a photographer, nor am I a flower expert so I will just post a few pictures of what I saw to show you what we saw.
We took our time eating and by the time it was time to say goodbye, it was dark outside. We will stop to see Aunt Brenda and Don again next year sometime.
Because of the late hour this was the view from the window of our Jeep in Phoenix as we left for home.
