Harry and Judy's RV Trip
No Photos 12th Jun 2011 - Summer 2011
Day 57-Sedona & Jerome, AZ

Had a great night’s sleep then had breakfast and did some laundry. The laundry room is right next to the pool, spa, exercise room, and game room. Played some billiards while we waited for the laundry (I still suck at billiards), read a bit and made some phone calls. Oh, and there’s 3 little kittens and a bigger one living in a drain pipe on the way to the pool. Harry keeps dragging me away, but by the time we leave I’m gonna make friends with them. Beautiful weather, warm, sunny, dry.
Had an appointment for a tour of the place and get the spiel about the time share so we went over to the sales office but they were backed up so they offered us an additional dinner certificate at one of the swanky restaurants if we rebooked, so we did for Thursday. They’re also giving us a $50 Visa gift card and a free week-end at one of their properties. One is in Orlando, we might do that for a few days.
From there went to the concierge and booked a bus tour to the Grand Canyon tomorrow. Came back to the condo for lunch and then took off for Jerome, an old copper mining town about half an hour away. It turned into a ghost town when the mine closed in 1953 and it’s now become an eclectic arty town, lots of pottery, jewelry, paintings, restaurants, “hippie” stuff. Had to go up in the mountains again, the town is built in the side of a cliff and when we left we took a wrong turn (again, thanks to the GPS) and continued on historic route 89A which at this point turns into a red rock mountain with 158 curves in 12 miles. That was fine for the motorcyclists on the road but it’s a bit much with the truck. So Harry maneuvered a U-Turn at a pull over and we only did about 10 curves. The trip down the mountain was a bit scary but we made it. Came back to the condo for dinner.
