Jerome and Sedona, Arizona
Today was time to visit Jerome and Sedona, Arizona. Aunt Mary drove us to Sedona
to meet my cousin, her daughter Jamara, for lunch, then drive on up to Jerome. This was the first time I had seen Jamara since she was a baby so there was lots of catching up to do. She is now a metal artist with her partner, Howard. And like the rest of us they are dog lovers, too. Must be nice to take your dogs to work with you.
After lunch we took off to Jerome. I had heard this was a quirky little town. It is an old mining town, built into the hills. Curves and ledges….
Legend has it that the town is sliding down the mountain, a fraction of an inch at a time.
But that didn't stop us from shopping. We did resist all temptation at the candy shop though.
Quirky is right!. The cutest shop in town used to be a brothel called The House of Joy
The view back to Sedona was magnificent.
Erwin, my uncle, JimEd, and JimEd’s nephew flew from Flagstaff to Sedona for lunch.
It was quite a bumpy trip with lots of crosswinds, but a good pilot. The view was worth the bumps and shakes though.
