Outdoor Wednesday

Outdoor_Wednesday_logo[4] This is my first time to participate in Outdoor Wednesday, so I thank Susan at A Southern Day Dreamer for allowing me share these pictures.

 

 

This is a map or our float trip down the Colorado river from Glen Canyon Dam to Lee’s Landing.

It was a 3 hour drive one way to get to the Dam to begin our 4 hour float which included a narrated trip and lunch on the shore. Our guide was very informative and she made our trip very interesting. Although it was a long day…starting with a 6:15 am  pick up, we returned home about 6:30pm, we still recommend this trip. There was a lot of sun, but we had great sun screen so we were not burned.

Happy Outdoor Wednesday

Hugs,

Barbara

After the ride, there is a small brunch and each passenger receives their Diploma from the College of Hot Air Knowledge.

It was a beautiful morning and the sunrise from a balloon over the red rocks of Sedona is a breathtaking experience.

Hope you enjoyed the trip and have a Happy Blue Monday.

Having a Great Relaxing Time

I am so surprised to be able to post, I don't know where to begin.

So far all our activities have been just visiting small towns around Sedona, but we have found some great surprises.......great food, beautiful little shops and very friendly people.

Yesterday we started in old town in Cottonwood, it was early so only one shop was open and it was a rock store..very interesting and then found a small cafe with the best food and I had a great hot drink.....will have to check on it today, we are going back for lunch.

Then on to Jerome, where we made several purchases and finally to Prescott for a late lunch and a quick walk around the town square.
ball
Our only planned events are on Wednesday ....A Hot Air Balloon ride which we love and on Thurs rafting thru Glen Canyon .

Most of the other things here we have done and since this is my fourth trip, we came this time to rest and relax.....and just bum around. We are doing just that and having a good time.

Will show pictures and give more details when we get home, since this is one of the few times I have been able to post.


Hugs from Sedona, Az.

For Some Unknow Reason

I am very limited as to what I can do on my blog.......so rather than become more frustrated than I am already, I will just wait until I return to post anything about the trip. I can't believe I am even writing this and just pray it will post. Have a great week!

My Mother

spiritualsundays

 

 

 

A WONDERFUL MOTHER

 

GOD made a wonderful mother,

A mother who never grows old;

He made her smile of sunshine,

And He molded her heart of pure gold;

In her eyes He placed bright shining stars,

In her cheeks, fair roses you see;

God made a wonderful mother,

A He gave that dear mother to me.

                               Pat O’Reilly

 

My mother is no longer here with me except in all the beautiful memories I have.  My mother loved my brother and me, but she loved her three grandchildren beyond words.

Every once in a while I think, Oh, I need to tell that to mother….but I know she already knows.

I love you still, Mother.
