It's a Wonderful World: Home Again

We had a great time in Phoenix.  I relaxed by the pool, reading and writing my yoga final exam while the others shopped and partied.  (Really.  No, I swear. Ask anyone.)  I did manage to visit two yarn shops, more about which will follow in a later post.

With all the driving and airport waiting time, we spent 14 hours travelling yesterday and I have a spinning class to teach tonight, so for now, I'll leave you with these images:

A Grand Canyon View
Some of the flowers were so bright, the colours hurt your eyes!

I'm told the white powder on the cactus is cochineal.

I've never tasted lemons straight off the tree.  They were amazing!

Phoenix residents landscape their homes a bit differently than we do.

We didn't get up into the mountains, but did see desert.  Desert land is much different than I thought.


  1. Wonderful photos, it sure looks like you had fun!

    1. We did,thanks. Although it seems odd for Canadians to head to Phoenix to play hockey, the old guys had a great time. Of course, we returned home to chilly weather and snow!

  2. I love the scenic photos! It's definitely a lot different from the landscape where I'm at, in Midwest N Amer., too!
