Yep, we had been to Scottsdale Arizona twice before; long time ago! That was in January of 1986 and in February of 1987. Both times my husband Pieter got invited to present a paper for the SPAWN MATE SYMPOSIUM. Each time we got to stay at the luxurious Registry Resort and even if this meant work for my husband, we did enjoy it very much!
There is some glare from the glass in this picture as Pieter took it from inside...
Mouthwatering good I can tell you!
But look at this Paradise-like Golf Course!
Yeah, Pieter is actually pushing this leaning palm trea back up-right.
He used to be mighty strong in his young years!
They completely wiped it off the planet in order to build condominiums and shopping malls, which would render more money. UNREAL but yes, here Pieter is standing in the back of those condominiums and it is ALL GONE.
Pieter said, so is also his full head of dark, curly hair (as is mine!)
The above 2 photos were taken on September 4, the day before we flew back from Phoenix, Arizona to Savannah, Georgia. We did stay one night at the +Hyatt Place Scottsdale/Old Town which is excellent and very conveniently located.
We still need to go back to Scottsdale, so Pieter will have a chance to ride their unique FREE Molly the Trolley...
Which I did on January 24 of 1986 - it is a fun experience too.
See link below post with more info.
