Driving to PebbleCreek from New Mexico

By |October 24th, 2018|

I just got back to PebbleCreek after spending the weekend in Santa Fe.   And, (not by choice!), ended up flying to New Mexico but renting a car to drive back to Goodyear.  The good news is that I got a feel for both the flight and the road… even if, by adding the drive, the trip […]

By |July 30th, 2018|

News Flash.  Summers get hot here in Phoenix!

Even the full time residents of PebbleCreek… and there are quite a few of us!…  tend to book at least a weekend getaway to give ourselves a break from the heat.  This year, I wanted to go to a resort with a lazy river so that I […]

Travel and the 55 Plus Active Adult Lifestyle

By |May 13th, 2018|

I just got home from spending a few days (literally a few days!) in Ireland.   My heritage is Irish and I still do have family in County Clare – but, trust me,  I don’t take the opportunity to travel for granted.  In fact, with my family flung far and wide,  easy proximity to Phoenix’s Sky Harbor […]

Visiting Phoenix/Scottsdale Museums from PebbleCreek

By |August 8th, 2017|

So, today is the second Tuesday of the month – the “free” day at the Desert Botanical Garden (that’s the set up right now, I suppose it could change….).  I decided to go.  It wasn’t a first visit – I had been there to see the Chihuly Exhibit and to walk through the gardens […]

An Easy Day Trip from PebbleCreek: Sedona

By |April 6th, 2017|

When folks visit PebbleCreek, one of the questions they frequently ask is “Where can I go for a quick get-away?”  Sedona is always my first suggestion.  An easy 2 and a half hour drive away, the scenery is mind-blowing, the temperature is an inviting 10 degrees cooler than Phoenix and the vibe is easy and […]

Yes! There is lots of Bike Riding around PebbleCreek!

By |February 5th, 2017|

After I moved to Arizona, my first real purchase was a bike.  This is before I bought the house, clothes for the climate, anything.  I really wanted a bike.  It’s got 7 speeds.  It’s white.  I haven’t named it yet.

PebbleCreek is very bike friendly, and once I am done with work for the day […]

An Easy Weekend Getaway: Las Vegas

By |January 16th, 2017|

PebbleCreek is close enough to Las Vegas to make it an easy – and affordable! – short get away.  And just far enough away to not become a bad habit!

The drive is about 4.5 hours depending on who is driving.  Having done it myself, I would recommend not planning on tackling the drive at […]
