Last weekend our family had a little escape to Bisbee, Arizona, as a gift from Adam's parents. It was wonderful. I found myself saying "why do people honeymoon in Napa when they can come here?" I suppose there is no comparison whatsoever, but I'd take Bisbee over Napa anyday. I love the antique shops and just the feel of the place. I wish I had some photos of the huge pit mine there, but we didn't stop the car when we drove by it.
I am going to let the pictures tell the story. Here is where we stayed. I've been trying to figure out a link to some old Palace Brothers music for this post, but I just can't. Somehow their music and Bisbee go hand in hand. Here is a site where you can hear snippets of the songs off of my favorite palace album. Try "all is grace" or "I send my love to you." And here is the song "come in."
Bisbee has a bike shop called the Bisbee Bicycle Brothel. The shop owner there said the old whorehouse was called "The Striped Stocking." I love that and if I ever write a fiction novel you can bet it will be in there... Enjoy the photos... I think I will post more since blogger limits me to 5 and I've already uploaded twice.
