While we visited Dick and Sandy Heismann in Tennessee, Sandy helped me start up a new blog. I like the set up of this much better, so from now on, go to:

Our horseback ride was on the grounds of The Harbor. John and Sarah are riding their own horses and Dan and I are on horses belonging to The Harbor. Cowboy Chad gave us a quick lesson in horse handling and took us on a trail that had beautiful wild flowers. The houses in the background are part of this spectacular development.

Our friends, John and Sarah Stelzer, showed us a wonderful time while we were in TX. They live in Graham, and work at a development called The Harbor, which is located on Possum Kingdom Lake. The picture of John was taken in the Chapel on the grounds of The Harbor. Sarah is with her daughter, Rebecca.

One day, while Dan was chasing the white ball, I ventured out to see the DeGrazia Gallery in the Sun, a National Register of Historic Places in Tucson, AZ. DeGrazia built the gallery so his paintings "would feel good inside". There are more than 15,000 DeGrazia originals...oil paintings, watercolors, ceramics and sculptures. The pictures you see are murals in the Mission in the Sun, a sanctuary for visitors year-round.

Upon entering the monastery, I had to put on a skirt and scarf.
The self-guided tour of the St. Anthony’s Grounds was a calming, pleasant experience. There are four chapels, several fountains, a main courtyard, a gazebo, lush gardens, a variety of crosses, adjoining housing complexes for visiting bishops, priests and men, a monks’ house and dining hall.

Almost all of the items inside the buildings came from Greece. That is real gold that you see. There were no pews, only “tall seats” called stasidia placed along the walls. Those attending a service, stand on these seats, they can sit when they get tired. Notice the beautiful wood carvings on them.

Every hour on the hour, this 330 ft. fountain can be enjoyed in Fountain Hills, AZ. I enjoyed walking around this lake and soaking up some Vitamin D while Dan chased the white ball around at the Tonto Verde Golf Course with Paul and Pam, golf friends from Colorado, who are spending the winter in AZ.
