We slept in until 7 am Wednesday and were out the door driving to Prescott, AZ for two days and one night......this would be the furthest we have ventured from Desert View (144 miles) since we arrived back on November 6th. The shortest route, ironically, was going west through the Village, through Tusayan and south to the I-40 in Williams. From there we drove west about 16 miles taking the US-89 exit south to Prescott.
We were last in Prescott about 3 years ago. It is a lovely mountain town which sits at 5,600' elevation. The temps in Prescott run about 7-10 degrees warmer than Desert View. For the first time since November I wore short pants and my Teva sandals.....it was wonderful!
We chose to spend the night in Prescott as we had a lot of things to accomplish, such as a haircut for moi, get a battery for my Nixon watch, get the protective glass replaced on both our phones, shop at Trader Joe's, COSTCO, and Fry's, gas up at $1.88/gallon, and have a late lunch at Prescott Brewing Company......our favorite local micro brewery. Now, we could have done all that in one day and driven home, but where is the fun in that? I was able to get us a very nice hotel room at the Marriott Residential Inn, which is right across the street from COSTCO and Trader Joe's, plus the watch place where I could get my watch battery installed.
We arrived in Prescott around 12:15 and immediately set about getting a few chores done. First up was to get TLE's protective glass screen replaced. It turns out she has the ZAGG screen which must be ordered (FREE) from ZAGG directly, then bring it in to the Verizon store to have the broken one removed and the new one installed. We then it was over to the watch place to get my new watch battery which was replaced in less than 5 minutes......it's now 1:30 pm and time for a late lunch....
