Wednesday, March 28 – We started our day traveling to Scottsdale to see Frank Lloyd Wright's home, Taliesin West. He began building this desert masterpiece in 1937 as his personal winter home, studio, and architectural campus.


After checking the price – normally $32 each but on sale today for $27,  we decided to pass on the group tour and walked down the street to get a couple pictures of the outside. We'll use the $54 on fuel.....ha ha!  I'm  sure it would have been a wonderful tour, but we a careful about spending that much on one sightseeing stop.



We then drove into Scottsdale. Hey...there's money in Scottsdale, AZ!  Most of these homes were amazing. Expensive southwest design and beautiful. Southwest Adobe is Paul's favorite home style.



Old Downtown Scottsdale is divide into districts.  Arts, Entertainment, Fashion, Business, Civic, and Old Town Districts.


We chose to walk among the small shops in the Old Town District.

Paul contemplating if he should purchase this chair for the MH.

Awesome totem poles.

Paul did buy a t-shirt but that was it for our spending. After a couple hours, we called it a day and returned to the MH.

When we got back to the MH, this is how we found Bella sleeping.

Must be nice to be so flexible.

The weather has been so great here. We don't know if we have ever seen 1% humidity. Yes, this weather device works. Paul just bought it yesterday.


This evening we headed to Superstition Skies, a honky tonk in Apache Junction.We were there to meet up with friends we met over two years ago at Quartzsite, during our first months on the road. Sandie & Jim Dixon are staying at a park in Apache Junction and enjoy this tavern frequently on Wednesday nights.  They brought a friendly couple with them.

Kerry & Brant were the country singers.We really enjoyed them and the evening with Sandie & Jim.


I wonder why Jim has such a huge smile on his face. Do you know Sandie?jim-and-sandh
