Today we went down to Scottsdale to visit friends, Margaret and Don Phillips. Margaret and Don live part time in Scottsdale and then Maryland. Meeting at their home we toured around the city. We had lunch at "Olive and Ivy". Outside the restaurant there was a nice statue of pony express riders passing the mail bag between the two riders.
Upon return we followed our GPS which was to have been the shortest route. It may have been distance-wise shorter but we had traffic signal upon traffic signal which made for a longer trip. But we saw a different area and found a Trader Joe's and stopped there for a few items. Upon returning to the motorhome we were happily greeted by our little buddy, Travis, and then we treated him to a nice walk in the campground.
