Arizona, Mesa - Thursday, December 22, 2016 - Mormon Temple Lights


Earlier this week we went with a group to view the massive light display at the Mormon Temple in Mesa.  This is an annual event, I understand they start putting it up in October.

The group we went with was some of the people we square dance with.

The light displays were some of the most beautiful I have ever seen.  Unfortunately, I didn’t do them justice with these pictures.  I’m hoping the photography club here at the resort offers some classes this year that will help me improve.  I think you can still get the feel of the intensity of this project.  Note that even the tall palm trees have decorations in them.

A narration at the Nativity scene tells the story of the birth of Jesus – it’s a very moving display.

We’ve been keeping busy.  We are still just working one day a week for five hours.  We anticipate this will increase to 10 hours a piece after the first of the year.  We are also square dancing at least four times a week.  We aren’t having as much success with our weight loss program this year as we had last year.  Going to have to tweak something after the first of the year to get going again.  We had a friend snap our picture at a holiday party.
