Yesterday was Mesa Marketplace day. We love the flea markets, never buy much, but enjoy watching people and looking around. It is good exercise, gets us up and out and walking for several hours. I did find a golden barrel cactus! I have been looking for one and I am happy to report we now have one. I will leave it in Texas, probably in its pot, since I can leave it in there for 5 years. I also bought a wolf and kits, a plaster statue to set out in the rock at our Texas lot. I looked for them in Mexico, but I always thought they were too expensive. The Mesa Marketplace is open air, but covered, so sun is not a problem and this Arizona sun is really bright.
Afterwards, we drove north to Scottsdale and ate a late lunch/early supper at Toby Keith's I Love This Bar and Grill. What fun. There were multiple large screen TVs for sports, but we sat in front of the stage and one screen was all country music, so we enjoyed that. The menu is somewhat varied, but we got the traditional burgers and fries which were very good.
Back at the park, I sat outside with Neal. We have a lot of quail here across the road from our site. They run back and forth in the Aqua Frier Wash. This is also where we hear the coyotes at night. Neal will not walk over at the pet walk at night which is at the fence up against the wash. I know he smells the coyotes. We also see little bunnies over there every day.
Till next time. . .
