Visitors from Gold Canyon

After my coffee and cereal i went for a walk to the grocery store and back. I needed a few supplies. I’m getting company for the next couple of days. 

At around noon Ed and Val arrived. They’d driven out from Gold Canyon, a drive of about 300 miles. They were coming to my place for a visit. We sat around for a bit and then made sandwiches for lunch. 

After lunch — well, actually quite a long while after lunch, because we spent a couple of hours just sitting and visiting — we went for a little drive around town. I drove down to El Paseo and made a reservation for supper at the Agave Mexican restaurant for later tonight. Then we drove out of town, up along the Palm to Pines highway for a few miles, just to get a view of the valley. 

We came back to town and stopped in at the big PGA store. We made another stop at the Bristol Farms grocery and deli. It was dark by the time we got back to the house.

Our reservation was for 7:00, so we had a bit of time for a little happy hour and more gossip. We got to the restaurant right on time. We enjoyed a great meal and margaritas to match. By 8:30pm it felt like we might be the last ones in the place — many restaurants close by 9pm and folks are probably tucked into bed by 9:30. 

When in Rome… We were home by 9. A little more sitting around and deciding on a plan for tomorrow. Then the Peterses were off to bed. I sat and serenaded them on my guitar for a little while; then looked at my photos from today and wrote my journal. By 11:30 it was time for me to go to bed too. Darrel, Ed, and I have a 9 o’clock tee time tomorrow.
