I was back in bed before 7am and then slept in until 10:30. After eating breakfast and stuff, I left at 11:30ish for the town of Fountain Hills. I was there for pretty much seven hours, though about four of that was writing at a Starbucks. I got there at about 12:05 and was afraid I'd missed seeing the fountain going off, but it goes for 15 minutes at the top of every hour, so I managed to park and get some pictures:
|This is how far away you can see the fountain when it sprays|
Then I walked down the main street for some pictures. It's not really as good as Scottsdale Old Town. For one thing it seems like most of it is real estate offices. It seems like the last time I was here in 2008 they were working on the median thing. They don't seem to have accomplished much in 6 years.
Since it was 5:45 I figured I might as well go back by the fountain to get some pictures of the fountain when the sun was going down:
I made it to Wendy's and by the time I got my food it was 6:45 so I figured why not go back a third time to the fountain when it was totally dark:
Tomorrow I'll probably just laze around and not do a lot. Last time I was here I got pizza from some New York style place. I'm not sure where I'll go this time. I'll have to look around.
