Our lives now include living at one of the nicest senior communities in the USA. Rossmoor in Walnut Creek, CA. We will still travel in the RV but not full time.

 

Well, this is a crazy catch up week for me, plus we are seeing so many beautiful things here in Colorado Springs that I want to do these blogs.  However, to do them, I am in Starbucks and Russ and dogs are sleeping in the car.  We just got reservations for Sante Fe spot Saturday nite-we will drive 6+ hours to get there.  We have young friends with baby there.  They are who I went to see last summer (the one before this) when they got married.  Now I will hold my Gooding friend’s grand baby myself.

Russ and I took the cogwheel train up to the top of Pikes Peak.  Sat with a 20 year old air force wife.  She was darling-grew up on Long Island and had some good stories about the hurricane.  Her college in Vermont is still reeling from the floods.

We have been sharing a bit of sun with quite a bit of cloud cover and yesterday and today, rain drops so heavy and straight down, you think it is a joke.  While up on the mountain we just took pictures, but talked to a German family visiting their daughter who lives here.  They took the picture of the two of us by the sign.

However, when I got off the train and walked around taking pictures I felt pretty heavy duty elevation problems.  My friend Pat said not to go to Machu Pichu.  What I noticed was white light around me and dizziness.  Also I was tired when we got to the bottom and could not shop in

Guess I will have to go back and visit it tomorrow.

Russ has probably had all the nap time he needs and I better go.  I’ve been here almost 4 hours and met a table full of people three times now.

  1. Awe! Colorado. My home, where I grew up. Been many a time to Pikes Peak, Rocky Mountain National Park, Manitou Springs, Colorado Springs…..all over the Rockies. Glad you got to see such a pretty State.
