Around Arizona

We woke up in Sedona after a nice night's sleep. L'Auberge de Sedona has a half-mile creek hike that we planned to do after we got up. We watched the ducks for a little while, sat by the creek and then started our hike. Unfortunately, Brian found the mud quickly and we had to head back for some sink laundry before we checked out and headed south to Pheonix.
We hadn't had any Asian food on the trip yet, so I looked for a good Japanese restaurant for lunch. We ended up at Nobuo at Teeter House and were not disappointed. The waitress gave great recommendations and everything we had was so delicious and fresh. From the top, right corner (clockwise): my panko-fried soft shell crab sandwich on homemade focaccia with cucumber and kanzuri aioli; teeter tots - fried tofu in a spicy miso sauce; and the grapefruit and hamachi with avocado and white truffle ponzu oil. The building is a charming house with calming decor and has a wonderful dinner tasting that I'd like to try next time.
After lunch we drove to Scottsdale and walked around the mall before catching "Begin Again" at the movies. It was cute, I would recommend it if you liked "Once". Afterwards, we had a light dinner at The Herb Box in Old Town Scottsdale (which looks like a really fun place to walk around). The Vegan Nosh was amazingly good and we finished off all that healthy with a piece of cheesecake with a cashew caramel crust and a scoop of salted beer ice cream. With that, we dropped off our rental car and headed to our airport hotel. Thanks for traveling along!
