DAY 19 – Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix & Gambling in Maricopa

Tuesday, March 19 – another tourist day for Joan & Dave’s final escape from riding through Phoenix.   This place was amazing.  Established in 1939, 145 acres and over 50,000 plants. And a bonus butterfly house!  I walked 2 miles, read everything & happily took pictures for four hours.

The day ended on a completely different note.  For our last evening in town, we went to the local casino, where I actually gambled instead of just using the restroom.  I entertained Dave & Phyllis at the poker machine, where I won $11.30.  Really, Phyllis won it for me.  I pushed buttons cluelessly.

      It’s going well – you can see Dave’s daily distance has increased. We stayed 4 nights with my friend outside Phoenix, so that was a great base & a fun visit. Unfortunately, I wasn’t near Dave through the pass & tunnel area, but he did fine. I thought the road was a little scary, myself! It would be fun to see you on your way home (or in Mason sometime).

    I am catching up on your photos and your posts because I haven’t been on your site in a while. The Desert Botanical Gardens are so perfect for you and I love your photos! Everything is so crisp and beautiful, (unlike our Ohio weather that is just crisp). Thanks for posting your adventure and keep it up!
