Al & Shirl Visit Gold Canyon

Monday: After making a few ‘business’ phone calls Sue and I went for our morning hike up Silly Mountain. We walked quickly and managed to find a ‘new’ trail with great views of Superstition Mountain (under a dark cloudy sky — remnants of the weekend’s cool rainy weather). We were back home for lunch (and a load of laundry) by noon. After lunch Sue went to Bashas to buy supplies for tonight’s dinner.

I was sitting at my computer when Sue walks in with Al (Sue’s brother) and Shirl. They are staying in a trailer in Chandler. We had booked a 3pm tee time at Mountain Brook, so after a short bit of looking around our place we were off for 9 holes of golf.

Al-and-Shirl-golfingThe weather once again cooperated — it turned out to be a perfect afternoon for golf. By the ninth hole the sun was setting and doing its best to paint the shadows on Superstition Mountain.

We barbecued steak for supper. Sat around the table and visited. Had frozen yoghurt for dessert. By around 9pm Al and Shirl left. We arranged that we would take a drive out to their place in Chandler later this week. A bit of TV and then to bed.
