From the Ho to Hollywood!

And by Ho I mean the iconic and divine Hotel Valley Ho in Scottsdale, Arizona.  Moving on from NYC we flew to Phoenix, Arizona into the lovely, but very hot and dry desert heat.  We picked up our car and headed to Scottsdale arriving at our hotel, the Valley Ho.  The Valley Ho has been around since the 50s and what a sight to behold, and our room did not let us down either.  It was sensational, and can I say, a very cheap and reasonable piece of luxury, our home for the next 4 nights.  More importantly the pool was my location and activity for the time in Scottsdale, mixed with a bit of shopping, whilst Rob played golf on 4 of the many course that Scottsdale is famed for.  A lovely time was had by us both, mixed with wining and dining, and downing my new favorite cocktail, the Liz Taylor, a house specialty at the Valley Ho.  I did also visit the Desert Botanical Gardens, which was a loved activity, minus the 44C heat that I was walking around in for 5 hours.

Leaving Phoenix we headed west to Anaheim to meet up with Marie, arriving late on Sunday evening.  Our Monday trip to Disneyland was fun and action packed, and Tuesday we headed to LA, with our activities over the next few days being Paramount Pictures movie tour, Hollywood Boulevard, Rodeo Drive - all the sights for Marie as she'd not done them before.  Mixed with a little shopping and lots of iconic eating establishments, we are now ready to move on to the city of sin, our fav Las Vegas, for sun, fun and whatever else occurs.  But as you know, "what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas!"
