Roadtrip 2018 Fall: Vancouver - Yakima - Bend - Carson City - Lone Pine - Palm Desert - Sedona - Palm Desert - Paso Robles - Calistoga - Brookings - Yachats - Cannon Beach - Vancouver

Day 14 - Tlaquepaque and Sedona Uptown

The view from our favourite lunch spot in Tlaquepaque - Restaurant Rene.

The courtyards are dripping in orange - decor from the past weekend's Day of the Dead celebration.

We're lucky to get these photos - as crews are on site quickly taking it all down and changing over to a Thanksgiving motif.

Patio Azul is really the only plaza where all of the decor is still up.

Message boards are also everywhere.

Apparently, the obvious is not so obvious.

A tropical planting mingles with late afternoon shadows.

Hopeless pandering to Canadians.

Today's entry to Sedona Traveller.

Who said Halloween was over? Yes, it is a classic American apple pie - an extraorinarily good one - and the facial illusion has now been broken!

Another fine tradition: Our Cheese Hoard. We have always wondered why we can't get a full array of cheese easily in Canada - this year's Hoard comes from Newport Street Market (Bend), Market of Choice (Bend) and Bristol Farms (Palm Desert) - these are just good-quality neighborhood markets. The Great Canadian Cheese Conspiracy was brought to light by (and I hate to say this)... Trump. Who knew our government has a Secret Cheese Society whose sole mission is to deprive us of quality cheese? What else are they depriving us of? Stay tuned! We are investigating!
