Staycation!

Hard to believe I've never done this: mid-week Staycation away from home. In the Verde Valley, which is the 'heart of Arizona.' At Cliff Castle Casino/Hotel. Played blackjack and slots. Ate at the buffet. Read Tang Soo Do/Soo Bahk Do volume one. Went hiking. Visited Montezuma's Castle, Tuzigoot Pueblo and Montezuma's Well. Went swimming and sat in the hot tub. Visited Verde Brewing company. Walked around Camp Verde. Ate a prime rib dinner. Basically took it easy and relaxed.
