Since we purchased a town home in Fountain Hills last November, in some ways we feel that we are a part of the community (even though we have technically only spent about a month here in total). So when we heard that the world famous fountain was going to turn green on March 17th we had to be there to see it up close. We thought we might have to use our Irish Imagination – but – NO – there was no mistaking that it was green!
|The fountain before the green . . .|
|and after! looks like the birds thought it was fun too!|
|It was cool and breezy (very un-Arizona-like for us!)|
|Lineups to get to the food were long but we made it – was there any doubt?|
|Just about there . . .|
|Corned beef and cabbage on rye – delicious!|
The Fountain is set in the middle of a 30 acre lake with a walking path around it. We took the walk once last week and I hope it becomes a habit when hubby retires and we are spending more time here.
As well, the local coffee shop sits right beside the lake and it’s a great place to spend a morning having coffee together – reading the paper and using their wi-fi!
