Photo Journal ~ Day #2 at L’Auberge de Sedona
L’Auberge de Sedona – Today we awoke to find the sun brightly shining in our Vista Suite sitting high atop L’Auberge de Sedona. These units are part of L’Auberge’s recent $25 million renovation. We also learned that every single existing unit on the property also received a complete makeover; making all lodging at L’Auberge shiny and new.
As you can see, the new units are currently a little stark. However, as the new landscape begins to mature, these units will inherit the stunning landscaping that the mature units currently enjoy.
Furthermore, as I pointed out in my earlier article, the interior design of these units are first rate. Above that, when you sit on your deck and marvel at the stunning view before you; only then will you completely understand why these units were built.
Here’s the view from our deck…
After a hot cup of coffee from our in-room Keurig coffee pot, we donned baseball caps, flip-flops, and set out to explore the property.
Here’s what we found at L’Auberge’s creek-side (Oak Creek) units:
At 8:00 each morning, the staff at L’Auberge de Sedona feeds a large crowd of resident ducks along the banks of Oak Creek.
Somewhere in the cells of this man lies a primal urge to wade in creeks. Therefore, no longer able to withstand Oak Creek’s beckoning, I marched out into the middle of Oak Creek to capture this “duck’s eye view”. Oak Creek really is quite stunning. Isn’t it?
Here’s another shot of Oak Creek a little further upstream…
After playing in the creek, Mrs. Roaming Boomer announced that it was time for me to stop playing and have some breakfast.
We listened to the captivating sound of the creek, watched gray squirrels gathering walnuts, listened to the intermittent song of the cicadas, and enjoyed a scrumptious plate of Huevos Rancheros.
After our delicious breakfast, we had to accept the fact that is was time to leave.
Don’t you sometimes just hate those words?
Here’s a shot of Carol catching her last glimpse of the morning’s muted views as we gaze into the sun from the deck of our L’Auberge de Sedona Vista Suite.
Although we were sad to leave L’Auberge de Sedona, stay tuned, we have more to share with you in two more articles!
