Prescott + Architecture = Prescotture. I just made it up...
I know it's lame, but I couldn't help myself...
sometimes a girl just has to be that way...smile!
The sun rising on Prescott Arizona. Such a pretty sight, don't you think? I took this shot through the hotel room window Saturday morning. I was so excited to greet the day that I hardly slept the night before.
When we drove into town we came upon this huge hill and as we crested the top all you could see was the Arizona flag proudly waving beside the beautiful flag of the United States of America.
Our flag, yours and mine. Another beautiful sight.
Sweet hubby behaving like the goofball that he is. Our first night in Prescott he decided he wanted to eat steak and to be waited on so I let him choose the restaurant. We found ourselves in a bar-b-que joint with funny signs everywhere. One said, "Your mothers not here so clean up after yourself." Another, "We prepare our food fresh everyday! If we say we've run out that means we have no more food, so please come back tomorrow!" And no, we were not waited on but waited on ourselves, picked up our food at the counter, and threw our trash in the trash can, but what GREAT bar-b-que we ate!
See hubby's shirt? He's a proud blood donor and wears this shirt quite often. Every time he puts it on he asks me if he looks dumb and my answer is always the same, "yes Honey, you look very dumb, but your still cute!" Do ya think maybe it's time to go buy new clothes? Yah! ME TOO!
We were told its been a cold spring and all the beautiful trees that line the square haven't even begun to bloom. All was grey but beautiful still.
The town is built with the old court house at the center.
It was so cold in the evenings that we could wear our loady jackets. Here's sweet hubby sitting on the steps of the court house. Such a darling man!
This one is brightly painted with the same colors as the Arizona flag...
how DARLING IS THAT!!!
This is a church done in the Romanesque style, but I don't remember what type of church. I was making hubby nuts with all my picture taking and he informed me that his life should not be dictated by the whim of my camera shutter...all I had to say to that was, "WELL!" and kept clicking away. He was of course kidding :).
This is the Post Office. Isn't the architecture beautiful? I think it's considered Renaissance Revival or maybe Beau Arts. Don't you love all the half facts I give you and can you image what kind of a tour guide I'd make? Not one with good facts, that's for sure!
That was just a small sampling of the architecture in Prescott, but there is so much more and I'd hate to bore you with it all so I'll just leave you with one last picture of our trip...
The sun setting on Prescott Arizona. There's almost nothing prettier in life than an Arizona sunset. This one was taken through the trees as the sun set over the Palace Saloon. One last pretty sight...sigh.
