Last Post

Or is it?

Cue the sound of bugle playing up and down in fifths, putting to bed our big trip.

For our final night in the States we’d decided to splash out and have a stay in something posh so I’d booked us into L’Auberge de Sedona, at least it sounded posh.
It was a bit special as on arrival we were ushered to our own cabin that had some first class facilities and a welcoming bottle of champagne accompanied by chocolate covered strawberries. Dinner could only be described as fine dining and the position of the restaurant, alongside Oak Creek, was stunning. Our little celebration before heading back to Phoenix and the long flight home.

The trip back to Phoenix was under no time pressure so a couple of diversions to places like Red Rock Crossing gave us our final visual memories of our trip.

There are one or two small tales to relate to round off proceedings but I think that they are better left until we’ve had time to absorb the whole of the experience that the last two months has given us. So maybe this isn’t the Last Post after all.
