Summer Woods

Ever since we got back from our "Round the World Trip" in April, my husband is thinking of Sukantara everyday (Sukantara is the resort we stayed at in Chiang Mai that build on the water fall). So sometime last week, he just decided that we need a little get-away, go to a place just like Sukantara, 

L'Auberge de Sedona

Just a few hours drive...


and we are here.....


Sedona, Arizona


L'Auberge de Sedona is a resort situated on the banks of Oak Creek in Sedona Red Rock Country


we dine under the sycamore trees by the creek, love the sound of the water, ahhh......just like Sukantara, only with a higher price tag! My husband said that the one meal here at L'Auberge cost as much as all the meals combined we had at Sukantara for the entire trip, LOL!



Summer Woods



We enjoy sitting by the creek, listening to the sound of the water and do nothing at all.....


I think the duck is enjoying the day just as much as we do


tweet, tweet, anyone's home?


we did drive into town for some lovely art work though





at night, the resort offer stargazing session, we viewed the stars with an aid of an expert astronomer, and with his poweful telescopes, oh my.... Saturn is surely beautiful!


my picture did not turn out well, so I grab one from the internet (source-http://www.earthsky.org), it looks exactly like this one!



Well.... I hope you are enjoying your week, I am just going to stay at home to avoid the heat!
