Thank you to all who sent birthday wishes today! It was such a great surprise to hear from so many of you. I got face timed from Casey, Natalie, Amanda, Kailey and Garrett. Amanda sent multiple videos throughout the day of her different classes all wishing me a Happy Birthday. The last video was of her and my grandkids….a grand finale!
First of all, it was moving day. It was time to leave Bryce Canyon and move south about 3 hours to Page, Arizona. But first Howie and I started the day by going out for breakfast.
We reached Page about 11:00 am. Our initial intent, was to go to Antelope Canyon, a beautiful canyon full of color. But Covid preceded us and the Canyon was closed – the only way to see it was via tours and that of course would cause people to be clustered together, so they are closed.
Instead, we went to Horseshoe Bend – it was a hike of 3/4 mile in the desert (and back again!) with the temp around 90+ degrees. But once there, it was beautiful and quite awe inspiring.
Thankfully, our campground had a swimming pool, so when we got back, Howie and I went for a dip to cool off. It was indoors and we had the whole pool to ourselves.
This picture cracks me up – it must be the angle but I look like a miniature toy in the pool!
The group let me pick the restaurant to go to dinner, so I choose a BBQ place. The food was great – we sat outdoors and there was live music (they sang happy birthday to me!!)
After dinner, we went to Marj and Larry’s where we celebrated with a monster chocolate pie! I wish the picture actually showed how big this pie was – AND it was delicious!
I had a perfect birthday! Thank you ALL! Happy Trails!!
