To Phoenix With Mom – Day Three
On our second morning in Phoenix, we made it out of the motel at about 9:00 am (after a nice breakfast of cold Cafe Istanbul leftovers), heading for Boyce Thompson Arboretum (which is about forty-five minutes east of Phoenix). The road to the Arboretum goes through some low mountains, and there were tall pink Penstemons on both sides of the road. Beautiful!
Here are some photos, in no particular order, from BTA.
Here’s the one and only new plant I brought home from Phoenix. It is Haworthia herbacea. I love it!
After several lovely hours at the Arboretum, we drove back to Phoenix, and had a lovely late lunch at a little diner right next to the motel called Jim’s Coney Island Cafe. I had a really good tuna melt (which I am always on the lookout for – I LOVE a good tuna melt). Mom had a bacon cheeseburger, which she said was great.
We relaxed in the room for a little while, and then Janelle came to the motel and picked me up. We went out to have dinner and drinks. It was great to see her. We went to a place called Crave. The food was really good. The garlic fries were amazing! I had a beer, and Janelle ordered the sangria, not realizing it was a whole carafe of it. It was delicious, and she was nice enough to share! 🙂 That’s me, drinking out of the carafe, and me and Janelle at Crave. The photos are phone pictures, and it was dark, so they aren’t great.
