Fun first day in Sedona!

Leaving for Sedona on year 1 celebration

I'm going to let the pictures speak for themselves, but will add a little more info about our trip that was perfect from start to finish!

Hello Sedona!

After an enjoyable drive up, we made it safe and sound to the red rocks.

Perfect view of Snoopy Rock - 3rd formation down

Mark is taking in a peaceful moment with one of the beautiful views from our motel.

I think I found my new ride.

We headed into town to do a little fun walkabout.  If you've never experienced a jeep tour in Sedona, the Pink Jeep tours are a total blast!  We didn't do it this time, but maybe next visit.

"Ya'll call this a coffee mug?  What a teaser!"

Mark, Mr. Coffee Aficionado, didn't know quite what to think about the little coffee mug.  His is about 4x that size.

Pink Javelina

We kept running into pink everywhere we went.  Like these pink javelin's in front of the Pink Java CafĂ©.  Pink AND coffee - perfect!  

Beautiful Buddha Garden in front of Andrea Smith Gallery

We went to the Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village for lunch and then walked around.  This is where we met Andrea (my hug friend - see my YouTube video here for more info) and her hilarious husband Gary.  I still have to do a video about what Gary did to me as it is too funny! 

Andrea's gallery was so very beautiful!  She not only has her artwork there and other artists, but one of the most magnificent collection of Buddha's - a stunning variety from palm size to life size.  Wish I had a few extra bucks to spend...maybe one day.

Gorgeous life size Buddha statue outside of Andrea's gallery

One of the many views surrounding Sedona

After our little walkabout we hopped in the car and enjoyed a peaceful drive.

Peaceful Sedona
A welcomed rainy drive back to the motel

After dinner we headed back to the motel and called it a night.  The next day was filled with breathtaking beauty, fun and...well, you'll see when I post the next set of pics in a few days.
