At Last ...
we got away for some much needed time together.
Both of us filled with excitement about the trip.
Nothing big planned,
just getting away seems to be enough.
We are not totally alone on this trip,
I suppose we could call him our youngest,
always goes on road trips with us.
Just too long to leave him alone....
I may explain on a future blog :-)
(Don't be worried)
Our first stop Mesquite Nevada.
First act of order was to upgrade to a suite.
We decided to stay two nights and actually
have an entire day to enjoy the pool.
We went to the nearby WalMart and bought to floating mats that
made the 104 temps tolerable. Met a lovely couple from Canada
amazed by all we had in common.
Still kicking myself for not trading e-mail addresses.. :-(
Day three we checked out of the hotel and headed toward to our next overnight
in Glenwood Springs Colorado.
The skies were something like I've never seen for nearly the entire 9 hour drive.
I must share!
Maybe overkill for some....I took close to 56 photos of that cloud filled trip.
My tired but happy driver, glad to be in Glenwood Springs.
|Wilson...loved the room.|
The next morning we drove into town after breakfast to do a little shopping.
This is an "establishment" we visited two years ago so I had to catch a photo to send
to my youngest sister Dona. Her last name is Holiday and her late husband's nick name
Doc Holiday :-)
|Odds of wearing shorts that match the .....street corner?|
Before leaving Glenwood Springs we had previously made appointments
the spa :-)
|We may have had facials, total body massage and mineral bath...........|
Feeling like new people we headed toward our destination.
One planned stop was in Friso which is just below Aspen and
very near Breckenridge.
Awesome little town we also stumbled
upon two years ago.
Had a fabulous early dinner....
what Bob called possibly the best pizza he has ever had!
|Evidence of the pizza I failed to photograph....|
|My fabulous dessert, a homemade brownie with nuts topped with awesome light whippy stuff..||with chili sauce on the side.|
|Bob's lemon shortcake with peaches and whipped creme fresh....|
Shopped around town for sometime, bought us some good fresh coffee and
headed toward destination,
home of Tami and Scott
Up until 12:30 A.M. laughing and enjoying being together again.
We've had a lazy first day here.
Had to go purchase ANOTHER
magnifying make up mirror.
I have a bad habit of
leaving them suctioned to hotel mirrors ...Urrgh!!!!
It's early Friday morning as we prepare to leave with Tammy and Scott for
what I am sure will be a something to write about trip.
Heading first to Steamboat Springs for one night,
then on to Breckenridge the next night !
Now, all caught up on where we've been.
So far so good.....echo's from my heart today.
