San Marcos Hotel Photo Adventure.

Things are finally back in order from our little flood. The apartment is dry and clean. It actually gave me a great opportunity to get reorganized and deep clean everything. It really wasn’t a bad experience after the shock of the event wore off. I think my favorite part was being able to stay at the San Marcos Hotel. We needed a place to stay for a few nights while our house dried out. Piston got to stay at his favorite place, the doggie hotel, and we got to stay at a beautiful and historic hotel.

The San Marcos Hotel was the first hotel built in Chandler, AZ. My husband used to work in the area and we passed it by admiring it on a regular basis. Not only is it historic, it’s also suspected to be haunted. Marc was having a field day with that idea. Thankfully there were no ghostly sightings happened during our stay. Aurora and I enjoyed our time outside walking around downtown Chandler. I even got a chance to revisit one of my most favorite places to eat, In Pockets, YUM!

It had been a while since I took my camera out and just took pictures because that I enjoyed. I finally got to do that while we were staying at the hotel. It was so beautiful. I hope as my skills improve I’ll get to go back and take even better pictures.

I feel slightly refreshed after I saw the look of these photos. I feel like I'm getting my groove back alittle.

Hey, by the way, don't forget to enter my little giveaway in celebration of my birthday. One year older and maybe a little wiser... well... maybe.


  1. that hotel looks beautiful & serene. i'm glad you got a chance to stay there, even if it was under not-so-great circumstances.

  2. glad to hear all is back to normal! guess what?!? our house flooded last night! not to bad but we had about 6 bags full of wet blankets, towels that we had to use to wipe up the water, thank god we have hardwood floor but still a huge pain! now we have tons of laundry to do! booooo! such a pain when a house floods, i couldn't imagine what you went through!

  3. You are a fantastic photographer!! All of those photos look like they come straight from a magazine! Love them!

    I'm glad you had a nice stay at your hotel and i'm also glad that you didn't have any scary ghost sightings!! haha!! It looks like a very beautiful hotel!
