We left Cheyenne yesterday and continued our pursuit of lemonade by going south to Silverthorne, CO, traveling along the Colorado River. We have camped many times on this road in BLM sites, and will do so again, but for now, we are camped in a nice motel that accepts pets. Missy does not like car travel, and complained for about 10 minutes (Miss Whiney Butt) before settling down in her bed and enduring the trip. She can be so ungrateful at times. How many kitties get to travel all the way across the country?
After settling in, Dick and I went for a little retail therapy at the local outlet shops, where we each found a few things. After having to empty our moho closet so that the guys could work on the engine beneath it, Dick complained about all my shoes and put me on a shoe buying ban (yeah, right). So HE wound up buying a new pair of loafers! Dick 1 – Sandy 0. I bought a case of Harry and David’s Pepper and Onion Relish. It makes THE.BEST.DIP ever…just mix half a jar with a block of cream cheese. Delish.
Any time we are in the area, we always eat at The Historic Mint, a local restaurant that has been in business since 1862. You go over to the meat market case, pick out your choice of steak or seafood, then cook it yourself (guy job) on their grill. Great salad bar, as well as lots of side dishes to choose from…and it’s always good to dish up some mushrooms and onions to grill along with the hunk of meat….here…
Dick was not a happy camper to learn that needed moho parts didn’t get ordered until yesterday. Hopefully they will arrive today. There isn’t much we can do but wait, and waiting is not our strong suit. Just sayin’.
So we will just enjoy the Colorado scenery today, and maybe go find a bead shop. Or shoe store. Sounds like a plan to me, y’all!
