Frank and I left Strattanville before 2 pm and headed to the airport. We caught a 6:30 pm flight to Phoenix. The flight left on time but since there were strong headwinds, it took longer to get there. The flight lasted almost 5 hours and we were more than ready to depart from the plane when it landed. We are staying at the Westgate Painted Mountain Golf Resort in Mesa for the first four night of our 8 night trip. It was between 9-10 pm when we arrived there to check in. Our place is very, very nice. It seems a little strange that the sun sets so early, around 6 pm; that is because Arizona doesn't use daylight saving time. Though this is Mountain Time, their clocks are the same as the Pacific Time Zone until the first Sunday in November.

Thought for today: Wait patiently for the Lord. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the Lord. (Psalm 27:14 NLT)

After taking an Uber to pick up our rental car in Scottsdale, we headed out to the Salt River. We saw some nice scenery along the river and at Saguaro Lake. We saw quite a variety of cacti and we saw several wild horses. We got back in time for the early bird special the Golden Coral and then we went back to our villa to watch baseball.
Keeping an eye on the weather for places I will be visiting soon

We drove from Mesa to a city called Surprise. It took over an hour as we went from the far eastern side of Phoenix to this area northwest of the city. Our destination was Surprise Stadium where we watched an Arizona Fall League game. The AFL is a league that runs six weeks or so in October and November. Each Major League team sends a few players (about 7) who they think may be the stars of the future. The number one prospect in all of baseball is Vladimir Guerrero, Jr who is in the Blue Jays organization. He played the entire game.
