Pirate watching over the undersea scene

Cold Arizona sparkled with lights, poinsettia trees and blazing sunsets. We were prepared with warm clothes, warm greetings and family hugs.

Arizona’;s JW Marriott’s Desert Ridge Resort & Spa underwater scene celebrated the holidays with a theme made from hundreds of pounds of glistening gumdrops, chocolate, sugary icing and tons of gingerbread dough that brought a parade of onlookers, and us! Met the main chef who explained they began this tedious work months ago, and took about three months to assemble. The pastry team, consisting of 10 pastry chefs, spent more than 400 hours crafting this year’s beautiful theme.

The weatherman is calling for chilling temperature tonight here at home finally, after this warm weather we have had since our return from cold Arizona.

In spite of the weather, family warmed up our visit. It was great seeing our kids and other relatives. We were busy with sites and sounds of the holidays in Phoenix and Scottsdale. The lights sparkled, and the poinsettia trees are gorgeous.
