We are settling in and enjoying our new environs. Prescott is situated around the courthouse square, the site of many community activities and much use by families, vagrants, buskers, and passersby. Thumb Butte is often part of the back drop.
There are lots of parks and lakes — and all are dog-friendly.
We haven’t sampled the theater offerings yet, but we’re taking advantage of the library, the film fest, the farmers market, museums, restaurants, and breweries.
We’re taking in live music at a variety of venues.
Prescott is home to the World’s Oldest Rodeo, so of course we had to experience that.
We all know that the best way to get a sense of a town is by attending a parade, so I did that.
Nature features large in Prescott. We had record high temps in June and then settled into monsoon season.
It seems to also be the season for white blooms in Prescott.
We had fires burning a little too close for comfort, but they were dowsed by firefighters.
We’ve been doing some entertaining and have been entertained at friends’ houses.
And we had house guests when Tracy, Dana, and Allison stopped in on their road trip. We had a great, but too short visit and took a day trip to Sedona. They also brought one of mom and dad’s canoes for us to use on the Prescott area lakes.
So we’re settling in quite nicely and enjoying Prescott a lot. Our neighborhood is very social and Rick and Carol have introduced us to their circle of friends, so we’ve really hit the ground running.
In my next post, I’ll highlight our new house and some work we’re doing.
