Today saw the departure of the family from the condo after a nice breakfast. Unlike us, they have to return to school and work tomorrow.
For our “work” today, we decided to drive up to Grand Lake CO. I’d visited the little burb in June, but didn’t really wander around much. Today, Darla and I wandered around quite a bit, and even found a necklace to add to her jewelry box. Grand Lake seems to have a huge restaurant population, and we had to take advantage of it, eating lunch at Pancho and Lefty’s. This was a nice mexican restaurant, and served me some delicious fish tacos. Wonderful day out.
With a belly full of good food, we decided to hike up to Adams Falls. OK, it wasn’t all that much a hike, but it was enough of one that we knew we’d hiked a bit. The falls were nice, although the water level was down from what we were being told. When I was roaming around up there in June, any water that could come down a hill was doing just that, and with a vengeance. The water today was much weaker, but still picturesque, especially with the bluebird skies.
And I know this makes it sound like all we’ve done is eat, but tonight we visited a Chinese restaurant I lucked into finding back in June. Pearl Dragon II hadn’t changed a bit in my absence, either. Beck and I went in for dinner, and in a crazy stroke, the owner remembered me from June, even down to what I ordered and how many times I was there. Apparently, I must leave a legendary streak wherever I go. 🙂
