Scottsdale, Arizona

January 15, 2020

I make it a habit of trying to not drive at night so I can see more of where I am. I made an exception tonight and drove through Scottsdale on Scottsdale Road.

My reaction was... “Whoa, what is this place?” Affluence all around - resorts, restaurants, shopping. Like Buckhead or Tyson’s Corner on steroids. G wagons, Tesla’s, Range Rovers. Two Apple stores within 15 minutes of each other? Two Mercedes dealerships within 15 minutes of each other because ... I guess they don’t want their customers to have to travel far? Stores whose names I could not pronounce Maybe I have been out in the boonies too long; it was so much it made me feel uncomfortable.

But then I found my store.

I found a few storage items that should be helpful to keep me organized. I’m especially pleased with the two containers that I can use in my cooler to keep my food from getting wet. Yuck - wet food! 🤪

Caught a photo of the sunset. iPhones have trouble with the varying levels of light - this sunset was at least 10x better than this photo.
