First Stop …
Once a year, DH and I make a pilgrimage to Southern Arizona to see our doctors.
Now this may sound odd, but it took us a long time to find good health care once we moved to the “Mainland” and it’s become even harder since moving to Northern AZ.
We do have GP’s up here for the odd cold, flu shots and whatnot, but the big stuff is taken care of with our tried and true doc’s down South.
I found this great Hotel/Condo/Time Share, not sure what it is exactly, because each time we’ve been in the past three years, it changes.
But we love the place.
I reserve us a one bedroom apartment with a king sized bed. There’s a Living room, dining room, full kitchen and covered patio. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything that you’d need to prepare and serve three meals a day. The lanai has a gas grill, which is a HUGE plus for us. Oh, AND there’s a washer and dryer in the apartment!!! +++++
What I do is go to the grocery store once we’ve gotten situated, it’s less than a mile away, stock us up with whatever foods we will need for our stay and we’re golden!
The complex has a nice pool, splash pad for the kiddos, and hot tubs scattered throughout.
Our apartment on this stay has a lovely view!
There are a few restaurants that we go to while in Southern Arizona, not many, but we do go out to eat every so often. On this trip, we had breakfast at Sahuaro Café, MMM!
Also on this trip, we did a take out order of Mama’s Sicilian Deep Dish Pizza, meh. I think we’ll stick to the thin crust.
The apartment complex provides a few things to get you started, such as coffee, paper goods AND some microwave popcorn! I made us up a big bowl sprinkled with some of our Furikake to enjoy as we watched a movie in the very comfortable Living room one night.
So we’ve made the full round to all of our doctor’s, now, it’s time to get this Road Trip going!!
