The outside of the shop was bright and colorful. Inside were purses, jewelry, and animal items of every description. I found a couple of cute treasures here and supported a great cause, too.
We had lunch at the upscale Tonto Bar & Grill at Rancho Manana. Their web page has inside pictures, but here are two from the entrance.
Lunch was delicious. Instead of a traditional sandwich, Kent had two appetizers: Grilled Heirloom Tomato Gazpacho soup and Tortilla-Crusted Crab Cakes. I tasted his soup, and it was great. I'm not usually fond of cold soup, but this was very tasty. I had Mexican White Shrimp Tacos, which came with white corn tortillas and an avocada cream dip. The ample quantity of shrimp were excellent--cooked in a lightly spicey ancho chili sauce with peppers and onions. Excellent!
It was too hot for us to eat outside today, although there were a couple of people doing it. The patio overlooks the golf course. I'd like to come back in the fall and try it out.
I also visited Cosmopolitan Bead Shop, which is such a funny name for a village store. But the beads were beautiful and the variety was awesome. I bought two unique beads, one of which they made themselves. I'm just learning to bead so kept my purchases small--to match my current skill level. But I'm gaining on it so a return trip is a must.
Our last stop was at Frontier Town, a collection of shops that have a little bit of everything. I supported the goats that I love by buying something at Udder Delight, the goat milk skin care store. Next I found a great belt and a cool yellow top at Glory Bees. After that I knew it was time to go home. Too many tempting treasures in Cave Creek!
