Utah Visit

My best friend Mona moved to Utah a year ago. I visited with my sister Diane. We drove for 10 hours and saw parts of Arizona and Utah landscape. Exhausting drive, but glad I did it. It was an adventure! Diane and I enjoyed our stay with Mona and we thank her for having us there. Then I flew out and visited her as well. Such a quick flight.  I would do it more often but I don’t want to leave my dog with a boarder or make my sister watch him. Anyway, I love it there. It’s beautiful. Here are some shots from when Diane and I visited. The second visit will be forthcoming.


Gilbert Farmer’s Market

So, I went to the Gilbert Farmer’s Market on Saturday morning. It was very busy and many people had their dogs with them. It was absolutely gorgeous out and after the few shots I took, I headed to Bergie’s Coffee for an espresso. That’s right, an espresso. I did add a bit of sugar to it. No cream though. There were a lot of vendors there. I loved going and am going to go again. I actually want to check out Chandler’s which is done on a late weekday afternoon.

South Mountain

My sisters and I went to South Mountain. We drove up. Maybe one day I can hike it.

These are wicked old, but I add them anyway. Not about Arizona, but I don’t care.



I have been using a Polaroid SX 70 camera with The Impossible Films and a Polaroid 100 Land Camera with Fuji film packs. It’s a blast, though a tad expensive.

JP Pancake

We all met for breakfast at JP Pancake in Gilbert, Arizona. I had the gluten-free pancakes. Very good, still got tired from the carbs. Diane, Sue, Dominic, Scott, Rebeccah, Jacob, and Grace all meet up with Devin who is visiting from Connecticut. I like the owners of JP Pancake. Their food is good too. It was a nice breakfast. Devin is so happy to be in Arizona. He got in yesterday, but had a terrible Ocular migraine due to the flight. He’s never flown before and was in excruciating pain. I’ve had those migraines and they suck! It’s like a slow wave of blood pain surging into your head an eyeball, coupled with flashes of light. Devin feels so much better today. Unfortunately, he brought the storms with him and it’s monsoons galore. They were going to drive out to Canyon Lake just to show Devin the desert scenery, but I think it would be crazy dangerous to ride those switchback roads in this weather. Maybe I’m wrong. Never been there so, I can’t really be positive. Diane & Dominic have gone and the roads are crazy.
