Sedona, Goldens, and Rock and Roll

Well, the trip got off to a great start yesterday, with a stop for lunch at Lynn and Scott's place in Greensboro. As usual, the food was outstanding--shrimp salad, chicken salad, corn on the cob, two types of iced tea, tort and fruit for dessert. We did indeed "arrive hungry and leave full" as Scott suggested. Thanks guys!

We actually first met Lynn and Scott right after we got married, when we were hunting for our first Golden Retriever (Fortune's Duke of Destiny!). They were kind enough to take a chance on a young couple who were renting a house (probably not usually a good demographic for responsible Golden owners!).

Then, over the years, we discovered we all have a lot more in common than our love for the breed. There was the time that we road-tripped down to Greensboro for a Bruce concert. Turns out, Lynn and Scott were going too. Then it got really cool. Same section! Same row! In a sea of 20,000 people, there we were, against all odds, virtually next to one another!

And then there was the time we were sitting in their lovely yard (eating well, of course!) and we first heard about a place called Sedona. We were totally blank slates...Sedona? But our curiosity was piqued and we made sure to pass through there on our road trip last year. Needless to say, it will be a longer stay this year!
