Cave Creek and Scottsdale AZ

We are spending a few days at a friends house not far from Cave Creek AZ 

This Cactus was at "The Horny Toad" were we had lunch

Lots of cool little shops in Cave Creek AZ  

This cool cat a "Main Coon" lives at "Ace Hardware" down the street from our friends horse property between Cave Creek and Scottsdale on Tatum.  You can buy all you pet and horses needs there as well as hardware. We bought our hay here. 

Another beautiful sunset

Above is a picture of our friends horse property in Scottsdale at sunset. 

The Hyatt Scottsdale at the Gainey Ranch - History :Gainey Ranch, another ritzy Scottsdale address, was once a 640-acre Arabian horse ranch owned by Daniel C. Gainey. In fact, over the years three Daniel Gaineys owned the place. Most of it was sold in 1980 to Markland Properties for residential development, but the family held on to 80 acres to have a place to stable their horses during the annual All-ArabianHorse Show. TheGainey Trust later developed that site for retail and residential use.
In their day, theGaineys entertained lavishly in theirMoorish-style home, movie stars, political bigshots and jet-setters drawn to Scottsdale for the horse show. The home later became the private Daniel C. Gainey Estate Club.

Today we really acted like tourists and headed out for dinner at the Hyatt in Scottsdale - (History above)

Lobby at the Hyatt

Pet friendly hotel

One of the many bars

Too bad Darrell missed this one of his distant cousin? 

There are many places to eat - Yum :)

Then there is the pool
You would almost think this was Hawaii except there are cactus in the picture. This Hyatt is a lovely resort.

Ultimate Consignment Store super cool place in Phoenix 

You can buy almost anything there. There are collectables, sporting goods, furniture, etc
