Indoors to Outdoors - Part 2, Wed., Oct. 4, 2017

Continued from Part 1...

From MIM, we drove to Scottsdale to meet Bob's cousin, Charis, and her husband, Michael. They live in a lovely home overlooking the mountains. It had been a number of years since we had been to their place. They still have their dog, Maui. 

We took some time to hang out on their back patio, converse, and watch the mountains change color to amberish orange. It was a beautiful evening.

Isn't this a great backyard?

Since we spent our day around musical instruments, I should mention that Mike makes (and plays) Native American flutes. Silly me, I forgot to take photos of his flutes. Maybe next time. (Or maybe he'll send me a photo of them that I can post in my blog!)

For dinner, we opted to go to Four Peaks, a restaurant and sports bar. We sat out on their patio. The evening was nice and there were misting machines to keep us cool. Bob and I had pear hard cider. For dinner, I had a southwest burger and fries which were delicious! Baseball was on TV, so the guys were happy. 

After dinner, we drove back to their place and then jumped into our truck for the ride north to Cave Creek Regional Park. OK, Mike and Charis, it's your turn to visit us in San Antonio! Thank you so much for your hospitality.

That's it for tonight. The end to another fun-filled day.


  1. You've sure gotten a lot in during your short stay.

    1. That's the way we roll. Bob says our next vacation will be a cruise. Then we can relax and be waited on!
