How can it possibly be Thursday already? The week has flown by and yes, I know I say that a lot but because we were away and couldn't get wifi, I wasn't able to be here at all. I am so very thankful to be back home again, in our nest with our sweet little Hunter. WE had a wonderful time down in the south-west corner of our state and I will be posting photos tomorrow; although I must tell you that while we took a fair amount of Mesa Verde, we didn't take much of the countryside. It took us about 6.5 hours to get there and the route we took was breath-taking! What I've discovered, since our last get away, is that I love the conifer and tree lined mountains more than I love the open valleys. We were so tired on Monday afternoon that we just unpacked, got a bite to eat at a restaurant overlooking the river in Pagossa Springs and watched t.v. Tuesday we drove into Durango, wishing that my blogging buddy Linny still lived there; we searched the town for antique stores, quilt stores, pet stores(you can see my sweet man was in tow). We headed down to Mesa Verde, which is quite the drive, and did a self-tour spending about 4 hours there. It was everything I thought it would be, but it sure took a long time to get into the park because of road paving. We got back into Durango late afternoon and again walked our little tails off, finally choosing a restaurant that was recommended by Linny. By the time we hit the condo, we were bushed!
Yesterday was a more relaxed day~we searched out more quilt stores and pet stores and walked the main drag before lunch. After eating lunch, it was clouding up with light rain, so we went into town and went to the mineral baths. I have never done this before and it was so relaxing and enjoyable; there were 18 baths all ranging in temp from 98 degrees to 112(I think there may have been one higher). The minerals are supposed to be really good for our bodies and I think my skin felt softer. Today we got up early and hit the road, taking a different route. Hubby and I both agreed we loved the first route better, due to the beauty. My sweet man didn't get to play any golf, our time was so short and we didn't get to explore too much, but hopefully in the future we will get to spend more time there. Hunter did so well at our daughter's and got used to the kiddos, of course I'm sure being with Lilly helped.
I hope you've all been well while I've been gone-I sure have missed you and plan to get caught up tomorrow.
Have a great evening friends.
