We have heard a lot about the Coffee Pot Restaurant so we thought we would go there for brunch. It was named for the coffee pot formation (red rock) behind it. It is also famous for it’s menu of 101 omelettes. Can you say YUM?
After brunch we headed out to the Chapel of the Holy Cross. The reverence there was undeniable. It was a holy place and everyone seemed to recognize it. The chapel was inspired by local rancher and sculptor Marguerite B. Staude, who was inspired in 1932 by the newly constructed Empire State Building. Her plan originally was to build the structure in Budapest, Hungary, but WWII set that plan off course and she settled on building it in her homeland. It was completed in 1956 and in Marguerite’s words, “Though Catholic in faith, as a work of art the Chapel has a universal appeal. Its doors will ever be open to one and all, regardless of creed, that God may come to life in the souls of all men (and women) and be a living reality.”
And of course, we had to throw in some much-needed FaceTime with some super cute kiddos.
We watched another beautiful sunset from Airport Mesa (the best place to view the sunset in Sedona).
All day I have been reflecting on how awesome of a Creator we serve. I am blessed to be called His child.
Let the rivers clap their hands; let the hills sing for joy together. Psalm 98:8
