Vacation, Day 1

A fire shut down the main freeway we use to get to Phoenix two days ago. There are other routes, but each adds at least an hour on to the trip. I didn't want to risk it with an early morning flight, so we decided to leave tonight and get our vacation started a day early.

We had a pretty double rainbow on our way down, and we stopped for ice at Mary Coyles in David's old neck of the woods. We are at the hotel 3 miles from the airport.  It should make tomorrow much easier.

I was surprised to see your Facebook post last night but after reading your comments above now I understand why you left sooner than I expected. Glad you were able to get out a day earlier than originally planned. Hope all went well and by now you are safely in Idaho.
Hope you have a great, restful, peaceful and relaxing time at your Dad and Suzy's water resort.Say hello to them for us. Have fun!
Love,
G
