Celebrating in MonumentApril 3 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 66 °F
After I got my second jab of the COVID-19 vaccine this morning, we went off to enjoy the delightful spring day ... mid-70F ... blue skies ... sunshine ... a light breeze. Our destination? Monument ... just a short ways north of Colorado Springs.
First ... lunch on the patio @ La Casa Fiesta ... delicious Mexican food ... mixed fajitas for me; carnitas for Mui.
Next ... dessert @ Lolley's, a creamery we heard about on the local news (they do a daily "Rebound Colorado" segment to promote local businesses during the pandemic). As promised, the ice cream — especially the caramel pecan — was "scrumpdillylolleylicious." Yes, I know, that's not a real word. But it fits.
A quick stop to check out Monument Lake wrapped up our visit.
All in all, a short but delightful outing on a lovely spring day.Read more
