Weekend in Arizona: A trip to the Spa...

Yesterday morning I woke up early, with the sheer draperies blowing in the gentle breeze. I slept with the balcony doors open, despite the warm desert night, because I enjoy fresh air. I ate a light breakfast on my private balcony, fresh fruit and berried, a sesame seed bagel and a pot of tea. It was a peaceful way to start the day. Shortly thereafter I went to the Agave Spa, for a massage.


Above left: "The Relaxation Room" in the men's spa & above right: the main hot tub in the men's spa area. It was so early in the morning that no one else was there...so I was able to take these photos. My massage was great, I felt so relaxed afterward.
A few sights of Downtown Phoenix...
Later in the day I explored downtown Phoenix on foot. Above left is a statue of a naked guy reaching up for something...probably his clothes! And above right, a cool building that caught my eye. It was much to hot for me to be walking around Phoenix, so I kept it brief. I enjoyed the visit, but I had to get to the baseball game....

Looks beautiful. I love the Kierland area, but it's a bit rich for my blood!

I love Arizona...that sunburst pic struck a memory..and that spa..I'm jealous..you get more massages done than I think I ever have in my life. Wanna switch lives for a few days? Bigdogg wouldn't mind one more male figure in the house for a few days-he'd prolly enjoy it..as long as you allow espn. :)

MMmmm. I could use a day at the spa. We have been working hard getting our studio ready for our Fall Line Launch. No rest for the weary!

it was hard to believe that that "cool building" you refer to with the "sunburst" over the doorway is City Hall. The building is huge! There is a marble staircase that leads to the second floor that is about 15 feet wide. Their planning department's offices are only on the second floor and really should be on the 7th or 8th. But then maybe there would be too much daydreaming?

I hope the massage was relaxing and beneficial!

I think the "relaxation room" was well named...it looks awesome. We Canadians don't tend to have naked statues...it is too cold up here for that..lmaoooooo.
