    I got up early and had a jog around the beautiful lake very bracing cant believe how cold it is in the mountains . Breakfast was provided up at the main Ranch which was huge ! We made the most of our last few hours here before hitting the road again.Read more

    Our little geezer-mobile is happily nestled amongst friendly scrub oaks and fragrant blue-berried junipers. Not large (heck, we must be almost to the timber line), but welcoming and cozy.

    Take a Hiatus [Durango]

    February 11, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 1 °C

    Last week we arrived in Durango for a stay of several months to check it out as a possible retirement locale. So with this post the mobile adventures will abate and resume sometime in the spring.

    10 Artisan Ct [Durango, CO]

    June 7, 2018 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 11 °C

    As many of you know we've been house-hunting in Durango. In April we made an offer on a home that subsequently fell through when the seller decided she didn't want to move after all.

    After seeing at least two dozen scrapers and over-priced fixer uppers we had about given up. Then one came on the market that fit most of our requirements-- walkable-bikable to town, recently build, open floor plan, not too big, nice upgrades, eco-certified, etc. We grabbed it.

    So the home closed June 7 and we are headed east to supervise the moving company.

    Exploring Durango

    September 24, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    When looking at where to stay to visit Mesa Verde National Park, Brice pitched a blah town close to the park. Sure there was a Holiday Inn Express, our typical go to but definitely no other charm or appeal in the area.

    I had heard Durango was an adorable tourist town with good restaurants and a nice vibe. Once we also saw it had lovely looking BnB, Brice was convinced it was worth the extra 30 min in the car each way.

    So glad we made the choice. The BnB is fabulous with an amazing breakfast, beautiful garden where I spent the afternoon reading. We had two nice dinners out; one with excellent live music. The bars were hip, the old time gold rush vibe in town fun, the riverfront path nice for a walk, and I was even able to get our car cleaned (boy it needed it). Such a good few nights. Even Brice agreed.
