We had signed up for Harvest Hosts while we were at the Escapees Rally in Gillette and have now tried our first stay. Javelina Leap Vineyard and Winery is in Cornville, Arizona, not far from Sedona. It is on 10 acres and has a vineyard, wine making and a tasting room. We pulled in late in the afternoon and there was plenty of space to easily park. We went into the tasting room to let them know we were there and of course did a little wine tasting. They have some award winning wines and we bought several bottles. They sell gifts as well and had a nice selection of items for sale. We had a relaxing evening. We would have liked to stay longer to explore the area but we need to be in Mesa Wednesday to get some estimates of repairs on the motorhome at RV Renovators.
Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort is the place where we stayed for two years when we first sold our house and were both working in the area. We spent most of the winter there last year as well We are planning on being here for a month. We have doctors and dentists to see, as well as family, and our niece's wedding on the 15th. Also some work on the motorhome and hopefully a few Ducks games and a play at South Coast Rep, where we had season tickets for many years. I probably won't be blogging as much but will do a few with some of the highlights of our stay.

We are in Utah but headed into nearby Page, AZ to do some shopping. On the way back, we stopped at a viewpoint to check out the views and got there just in time for sunset.
