Play Day

Today, Bill and I just decided to take a drive through Cottonwood, and Clarkdale, and just stop and explore anything that caught our eye. No agenda, no time schedule, just Bill and I being absolutely foot loose and fancy free.

The first thing of interest that caught our attention was this place, called, Simply Amazing Plaza. The lime green and yellow horse-drawn buggy sitting out front got my attention right from the get-go.

There were life-size metal horses, out in front of the building, with metal cowboys riding them, and shooting their guns in every direction.

Lots of painted metal flowers, cactus, and pots, to decorate your yard, if you have a yard to decorate. But still, they were all very pretty, and if I had a yard to decorate I would have it full of pretty stuff like this.

Even a full size carved Indian sits on the front porch, with his big purple, green, and yellow, metal bird, to welcome you as you enter the building. And for a special price of $200.00, you can take him home.

Moving on, we ventured into the historic downtown area of Clarkdale. What a cozy little hometown feel this little town has, with flowers hanging in pots outside the store fronts, and several little outdoor cafe type places to eat. The Paradise Point Cafe offers Homemade Deserts, Organic Coffees & Teas, and Therapeutic Massage.  Now doesn’t that sound interesting…?

Bill and I had a good time laughing, and debating, over this sign at the end of the street that reads “Surely Not everybody Was Kung Fu Fighting! We don’t really know, what do you think?

Moving on down the road, we came upon Larry’s Antiques Shop. The thing that caught our eye here was this rusty old car with a skeleton behind the steering wheel. A fun place to visit, but my all time favorite so far, is still Sweet Peas Antiques that just happens to be a couple of miles from our RV Park.

Well, by now we were getting hungry, so we decided to try the Town Tavern & Grill.

When we were seated at our table, the waiter brought us thin bread sticks and a little bit of herb butter to snack on while we waited for our lunch.

Bill ordered the Prim Rib Dip, with fries, and a side of horseradish.

I had the southwestern hamburger on sourdough, with jack cheese, green chilies, and sweet potato fries. Very good, but I could only eat half, because the portions are way BIG.

On our way home we stopped at Wal-Mart, and purchased a Hamilton Beach Countertop Oven. We have a Microwave/Convection Oven in our RV, and I love it for microwaving, but not for baking. I really missed having an oven that actually browns food that you want browned. This little jewel can be used as a bake oven, convection oven, rotisserie oven with rotisserie tools included, and it also broils, and is a toaster oven. What more can anyone ask out of one little over. I have it all set up outside on a table, and will bake a meatloaf in it for our dinner tonight.

Bill and I are getting this relax and play time down REAL good… We are having so much fun just pilfering our day’s away together, doing lots of nothing, but turning nothing into having so much fun.

Stay Tuned!

    What amazed me is that those metal horses, were put together with thousands of pop rivets, seen a lot of stuff that probably would have landed in our house or yard, greatful for this nomad life ha!ha!
    Love you Girly

      Oh, Bill, I knew you would know what would have landed in our yard if we had one… But, surprise, surprise.. I’m happy that we rid ourselves of all that “stuff”, so we could make room in our lives for this new way of life, that we are so enjoying. Nothing like being free of “stuff”, and able to move on within an hour at any given time… So loving our new retirement lifestyle. Amazing what all opens up when you rid yourselves of all the “stuff” that holds you down/back from new adventures… XoXo
