Day 136: Cave Creek Regional Park, AZ
Sunny and warm.
Oh the joy of making coffee in the RV! We had a couple cups of coffee and some leftover birthday cake, which we grilled in a pan with a little butter. The cake was sort of dry and not impressive. It was a loaf with pumpkin, cranberries, and pecans, but I think it was old and dried out. We are not impressed with that bakery.
We just love this campground we are staying in. It has clean showers nearby, fresh water at our site, a dump station, good space between the sites with iconic saguaro cactus all over, a visitor center, good cell signal, proximity to town, very friendly clientele, a night sky full of stars and a full moon. It all has been nothing short of perfection. So we signed up for a second night here.
Having a campground for the night established, we went into Phoenix to see Taliesin, a Frank Lloyd Wright home. This was Frank’s last home and he established an architecture school here. We toured the home and we really appreciate Frank’s use of the surroundings for function and beauty in his home.
Tom removed one of the window blinds to try to determine how best to replace the string in it. Then he lit a fire and we enjoyed roasting hotdogs and we had fresh guacamole which, sorry if I’m bragging here, was some of the best I’ve ever had. The guacamole had quite a bite although I put less than one jalapeño pepper in it, but the pepper must’ve been fresh and strong.
