Prescott

Today, Bill and I took a nice drive to Prescott Arizona. We have been there several times before, and we always enjoy walking around the beautiful courthouse that sits in the center of the town. This courthouse is an amazing site to see during the Christmas Holidays. The building, and all the trees are lit up, and if you were not in the holiday spirit before you got there, you most likely will be by the time you leave…

I think this memorial, dedicated to all the Veterans from Yavapai County for their sacrifice in service to their country, is as heartbreaking as it is thought-provoking. I thank them, and all who ever served, fought, and especially those that died for our freedom. And, I continue to pray for those who are serving our country today, and I also pray for a time when we will have peace on earth, and no longer need to go to war.

Hotel St Michael’s sits on the corner of the famous Whiskey Row.

In my opinion, you just can’t really say you visited Prescott unless you spent some time walking up and down Whiskey Row. That is where you will find the famous Bird Cage Saloon, The Palace Saloon, and many other little establishments where you can shop,  grab something delicious to eat, and a drink of your choice…

Bill and I were there for lunch. We decided to go to the Palace Saloon. It is a beautiful place with lots of history. Just look at that bar. And, we love buffalo burgers, and they offer them on the menu, and they were delicious!

It also doesn’t hurt that they have cowboys walking around in chaps… Now, I can’t find anything wrong with that!!

Of course, it wouldn’t be a real saloon, if a saloon gal wasn’t waiting at the top of the stairs, to make a cowboy’s dreams come true… For a price of course!

After lunch we made our way to Mortime Farms. It is an adorable country store, that also has lots of farm like activities for kids to enjoy. Take a look.

They sell everything from flowers,

to homemade fudge,

and huge cinnamon rolls that when Bill saw them he said “omg, just shoot me now…”.

Fresh made pies

and every kind of canned fruit and vegetable you can imagine…

It was another fun-filled day in our retirement world. A day I can say I was happy we were NOT hiking. 🙂 Yes, we are BOTH still real sore after the 10 mile Bell Crack hike… But little by little we are moving better… Ha!

Stay Tuned!
