Today we headed northwest to Salt River Fields at Talking Stick to watch the Brewers play the Arizona Diamondbacks. The facility was new last year and is very nice.
I had heard on the news that the Diamondbacks had sold out several of their games this season so I ordered tickets online last week. It was a good thing I did because today ended up being a sell out as are their next four games. They actually had a record attendance today of over 12,500.
The game was another dud ending in a 0 – 0 tie. We’ve now seen 1 win, 2 ties and 3 losses. I’m hoping our team is saving themselves for the regular season. Spring Training has not been very inspiring to watch this year.
The weather was beautiful. Our two days of winter are over. Today was in the 70s and sunny. It actually felt hot sitting out there in the sun.
Yesterday we road our bikes to a shopping area near us. It’s about 3 miles round trip and there is a Fry’s food store, Wal-Mart and all kinds of other shops. In case you were feeling sorry for us because of our cold snap over the weekend, I took some pictures to show you how we are suffering here in Phoenix.
Along the way there are lots of beautiful blooming bushes including some gorgeous pink azaleas.
While we were in Tucson in February they were explaining on the news that it was safe to plant tomatoes as the threat of frost was over. All I’ve ever planted in February in Wisconsin was a shovel into a pile of snow :) So you can stop feeling sorry for us. We’re not suffering here in “cold” Arizona. I am very happy that everyone up north is enjoying such warm weather. I sure hope it stays around for summer!
Tomorrow we are heading on a little adventure. A have a book called “The Most Scenic Drives in America”. We’re going to follow one of the routes from Flagstaff to Sedona. We’ll spend tomorrow night at a hotel in Sedona and then do some more exploring on Friday as we make our way back to Buckeye. With gas prices being so high, we figured it wouldn’t cost any more to stay in a hotel for a night, and then we don’t have to tow the RV up there. I’ve heard Sedona is beautiful and am looking forward to exploring.
Don’t wish upon a star – Reach for one!
