January in Arizona~
We are really enjoying our new home/park model in Canyon Vistas in Gold Canyon, Arizona. We came back to Arizona on December 29th. It is hard to believe we have already been here for three weeks. We feel settled in our new home and are really enjoying everything there is to do here. So far, January has been beautiful and above normal temperatures. That is great for us because we can be outside almost all day. Our new favorite exercise classes are outside in the pool. We love aqua bike and taquata classes. They are both in the morning, so then we can enjoy the rest of the day, hiking or biking or listening to music on the patio, There is live music three afternoons a week. Everything is different this year. They limit how many people can be at the grill and on the patio. We have to wear masks when we are dancing. We are adjusting to all the changes and know that (hopefully) someday things will return to some kind of normal. We feel so lucky that we can be outside. We have been able to spend time with Lois. We have been able to go out with her and eat outside on patios. We have discovered new hiking trails in and around the Superstitions. Steve has found bike trails that he can access right from our home. We are looking forward to doing some more tent camping. We went to McDowell Mountain Regional Park and camped in our new tent for two nights. We really enjoyed it, so actually planned to go back this weekend, but there is rain in the forecast ~ Finally! We don't want to camp in the rain, so have postponed that trip. I will post some pictures from the past three weeks.
