There I go, using the word "normalcy". We proceeded the drive to Sedona, noticing that some guy was hanging out of his truck filming some girls in a sports car. Whether this was for a commercial or something or else he just liked the girls or the car. They ran parallel to each other down I-10. We were still in the "Greater Phoenix" area.
After a 2 hour drive we reach beautiful Sedona, and yes, it was a peaceful rather uneventful stay. That is except for the fact that a paving crew was working on the road in front of our unit. They would begin their work with jackhammers, dump trucks and steamrollers for the first 3 mornings at 7 am sharp.
