After a long week of business travel I'm back home. Yay! But it wasn't all work and no play, since my travels took me to a top rated spa resort, one of Oprah's favorites - Miraval. Since I was there for work I didn't get to take full advantage of all the resort amenities, but I did get a prenatal massage at their spa (heavenly) and hiked around a little bit checking out the views of the Catalina Mountains. It's so pretty there. I was really hoping to see some fun wildlife, but the only creatures I saw were birds (hummingbirds, quail, finches, cardinals and a lone woodpecker). Supposedly a family of bobcats lives on the premises and if you go into the mountains you might come across a mountain lion. Exciting animals are afoot in the sonoran desert! What I really wanted to encounter was a javalina - basically a wild boar. No such luck! But the scenery was awesome and the food was tasty and healthy. The food was so good that I found myself in the gift shop asking if they had a cook book. Apparently the spa doesn't have an official cookbook but after a quick google search I found what I was looking for. Consider it bought!
Of course, I forgot my camera on this trip. I need to be better about that. So out of desperation I bought a disposable camera. Who knew they still sell disposable cameras with real film. Crazy! So once I get my photos developed (assuming I took some decent pictures) I'll post them here. In the meantime the photo above was swiped from the wonderful wide webby world.
