Mike’s brother, John, and his wife, Debi, drove up from Wickenburg, Arizona and we all spent the day exploring a few shopping areas in Sedona. We started with a stop at a little place off Highway 179 just outside of Sedona. The place looked interesting to us when we first arrived in town several days ago. Something along the lines of “American Picker” with old fashioned advertising signs, large rustic metal sculptures, outdoor art, and a little bit of this and that. Fun place with fragrant pinion wood burning and interesting things to look at. We bought some of the wood to burn one night in the fire pit.
Lunch at the Secret Garden Café in the Tlaquepaque (pronounced “Tah-lockey-pockey”) shopping area was excellent; the restaurant specializes in fresh salads and desserts, and we were not disappointed. I love a restaurant with an interesting courtyard for dining outdoors, and most of the eating area for Secret Garden Café is outside surrounded by flowering trees. To take the chill off, each seat has a Mexican blanket for you to drape over your shoulders.
Shopping ended today at the Fudge Shop in Sedona Old Town. The amaretto flavored fudge
is was to die for.
Thanks John and Debi for a fun day!
