Steve & Judy at Jake’s Old House: Life is Good/Desert Artisan Gifts

Nicole with Life is Good
Judy and I stopped at the local park, Vernon Worthen Park & Centennial Park, for a picnic and to scope out our beautiful surroundings in this special City of St. George, Utah.  Also the home of Dixie State College.  We learned while talking to Nicole at the Life is Good shop that Dixie is sort of a party school and well attended by those who love having a good time along with serious studies,  Believe it or not the Life is Good brand is new to me, which shows how much I go shopping.  I was compelled to buy a hat and shirt while in the store.  It was a pleasure talking to Nicole who made us feel right at home.  Nicole’s smile is captivating, and she clearly loves meeting people and sales work with Life is Good.  Nicolle is from Idaho and on a break from college.

Entrada Country Club

Split Rock is developing over 1,000 acres in the very scenic Snow Canyon corridor adjacent to the renowned Johnny Miller Championship Golf Course at Entrada Golf and Country Club. Split Rock Development Group has woven the land, the symbols and the artwork of the Native American heritage into several distinct communities surrounding the Entrada Championship Golf Course.


Split Rock is the high end developer in this area…  They own the Ancestor Square & Gallery where the Life is Good store is located  It was a treat to hang out for the afternoon in this historical site where Native American art is a highlight in the Gallery.  Wish we had some extra pocket change to buy a piece or two.  My style these days is a new hat and T-shirt…  We enjoyed our visit to St. George very much, especially Starbucks where we got our coffee treat for the day, and Wi-Fi access.  Judy and I are technology crazy boomers with smart phones and laptop always in hand.  I love doing my blog on this trip to record and share the sites and what we are learning.  We hope our followers are enjoying it as much as we do.  You are joining us on this trip from start to finish while we head southeast to Florida and points along the way.  Thanks for coming along in cyberspace!
