TRAVEL THERE: ROLLING UP THE SIDEWALKS
As we made our way from Oak Creek Canyon to Downtown Sedona, I have to confess that Google was not much help. Perhaps they need me there to help them get on Google My Business or maybe they just don’t care. Anyway, what was listed was either fast food or pizza. In self-defense, we chose pizza.
Sedona Pizza and Pasta
It was only about 6 PM, but they really were rolling up the sidewalks. There was one jewelry store that seemed to have some activity, so we strolled in. Everything cost the world and the proprietor was an
as er… a jerk. We didn’t stay there long.
Across the street was a little plaza where there were a couple of restaurants open. The sandwich shop had big plate glass windows featuring the view, but it was virtually empty and the light was fading fast, so the view wasn’t going to be visible in the next few minutes.
We opted for Sedona Pizza and Pasta. The prices were more than we would have expected for a casual dinner, but we didn’t have a choice. So, we ordered up and watched the guys behind the counter cooking up and serving meals. When our pizza was delivered we were disappointed. We already knew it was going to be a thin crust pizza, which is not our favorite, but we’d never seen a crust so thin. We’re talking paper thin. The service was good, it was clean and the staff was really nice, but we really can’t recommend a pizza place that virtually puts their pizza fixings on paper.
Back at the Adobe Village Inn
We stopped by a convenience store on the way to the Inn and picked up a bottle of wine. Back at the inn we chose some free DVD’s to watch – a documentary about Sedona and High Crimes with Morgan Freeman and Ashley Judd.
We also took advantage of the Inn’s hot tub. We’d let the manager know we were interested and he had it all cued up for us. It really was quiet nice.
After the hot tubbing and a shower, we crawled into bed and watched our selections. After all the activity we had in Scottsdale and Phoenix, it was nice to take it easy – and after all the challenging driving we’d done during the day, we were pooped.
Up and Out
Breakfast was served from 8-9, so Bill could not linger in bed. The Adobe Village Inn’s website is very proud of their breakfast tradition. As soon as we made our reservations, they emailed to ask about food preferences. I confessed to my prejudice against eggs and that resulted in a breakfast that was way too sweet for both of us. I mean, in small bits, all of it was delicious, but breakfast is an important meal and we needed something besides carbs, sugar and fruit. I’m betting if you didn’t tell them no eggs, you could get something absolutely perfect.
Our target for the morning was Tlaquepaque, but we took a driving tour first. Come back next week and join us!
