Anniversary Getaway, part 1

This is actually the best looking part of the course right now
(they were closing the next day for overseeding)

We set off on our getaway on Thursday afternoon, driving down to St George. We listened to the first half of the Utah game while we were driving. Then we went to Iggy's in St George and watched the second half of the game while we had dinner. Then on to Mesquite, where we stayed for the night.
Then early the next morning (but not quite early enough) we went to McDonalds for breakfast (it was conveniently located next to the hotel and was quick) and then on to golfing. I was really nervous to go again because we hadn't been for 2 years. Luckily we got to go out just us 2, which was quite a relief. We had a cart which always makes it fun for me. It all came back to me and I had some good hits. We had a great time even though it got pretty hot by the end. We golfed 18holes, which I've never done in my life, and i'm not really cut out for that much golf - I don't have the endurance or the attention span. But Paul was having a blast so I was good too.
