On a holiday again..

Joe and I went to Williams, Arizona for the weekend. It is a tiny little town off of Historic Rte 66 and about 50 miles from the Grand Canyon. We stayed at the most charming Bed and Breakfast, The Grand Living B & B. The owners, Gloria and Bill were lovely and we were made to feel like family. We were pretty low key, ate at family restaurants, sat on the porch in rocking chairs and even laid in the driveway in the middle of the night to look at the BILLIONS of stars you could actually see. It was nice. We went to a deer farm... I didn't even know there was such a thing. There are just deer all over and you feed them but they won't go away. It was a little disconcerting.. 40 pairs of large doe eyes staring at you, surrounding you, waiting for corn... following you. It was like a fluffy version of Alfred Hitchcock's, "The Birds". There were all sorts of other animals at the farm also, reindeer, birds, mini donkeys and cattle.. craziest farm I have ever seen. Overall we had a wonderful relaxing time and are looking forward to going back soon!! Oh, and I have posted an endless number of pics.. I will beg your forgiveness.

Sonds like fun. I wish I could go on more trips. The only place I'm hoping to make it to is Apache Junction this Sunday. Some theater is showing Raising Arizona for free there Sunday night at seven (apparently, the movie was shot there.) Anybody want to go?

We loved Williams- the gateway to the Grand Canyon.
