We spend our last few days in Sedona eating through our food, going to the gym and cleaning the the townhouse.
We also have a last meal out at Creekside Bistro both as a reward for cleaning the house and as a way to keep from creating any dirt.
Our landlord, Doug, comes to say goodbye as we’re packing up. We’ve really enjoyed this townhouse with a garage for our car and gear, views of the red rocks and the quiet neighborhood.
Car packed – and I do mean packed – we are off to Scottsdale for a week of meetings, golf and dinners for Walt while I play and join him for the dinners.
Although we’ve decided we couldn’t live here permanently, we’ve really enjoyed our two months. The red rocks and the easy accessibility to hikes, as well as the cheap but hard par 3 golf course nearby have all been fun.
We’ll start our Scottsdale week at a Cactus League Spring training baseball game between the Arizona Diamondbacks and the San Diego Padres.
Despite not knowing any of the players, we’re enjoying being back outside at the ballpark. It turns out to be a good game, ending in a tie (no extra innings in the Spring).
It’s a fun afternoon.
