I just checked in on the blog, and was stunned to see so many people still reading it, so I thought the least I could do is write something. The last post in October had me longing for a rest, which I finally got in January this year. Becky and I drove to Arizona again and had a wonderful time down in Tempe. Unfortunately, on the drive down south, we hit the infamous ice storm on our way through Oklahoma.
And then the snow storm in Texas…
This is Amarillo, Texas. Really.
Anyway, we made it to Arizona where the weather was perfect; no snow to shovel, sunshine every day, and it was warm! We even took a two day trip up to Utah, which was absolutely stunning. We visited Zion National Park, which was on my Bucket List, so a really exciting day for me.
There was so much to see and do in and around Phoenix;
Phoenix Zoo at night, and
the Dale Chihuly exhibition at the Desert Botanical Gardens.
We came back to Ontario at the end of January and hit one of the worst winters in 35 years. I was so glad we had escaped it for a few weeks, because it continued for another three months. We even had snow at Easter! Anyway, it looks as though Spring is here at last, and we are ready for a new beginning. I have lots to tell you all, but I just wanted to say, “Hi, and thanks for reading”.
