    Boyd Lake SP - Loveland, CO

    August 19, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 32 °C

    Down from 10,000' to 5,000' and the climate change is dramatic it's in the 90's F today at Boyd Lake State Park. Good campground by a lake with sandy beaches and views of the mountains. All sorts of RVs here Friday from coaches, like ours, to fifth wheels, trailers and tents. Cycle round the lake was amazing. Americans know how to do beach, gazebos, barbecues, ball games, inflatables, power boats and jet skis. Lots of geese, gulls, egrets , herons and even saw a white pelican.Read more

    We are in Loveland!

    June 10, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    What a day this has been, what a rare mood I'm in. . .

    The motel was great, breakfast this morning was good, except for the coffee, and we hit the road about 10 a.m. The first stop was the gas station. Not only did we need fuel, but the windshield was so coated with insect guts that it was hard to see through. Janet scrubbed the window 3 times before it came clean.

    The second stop was Starbucks for two good mochas and a chai latte. Yummy !

    From the coffee shop we drove north for a bit and then turned left onto a two lane highway in the middle of nowhere. The scenery was wonderful, the traffic was non-existent, and the driving was delightful.

    After a couple of direction changes and quite a few miles, we finally got out of Texas. We had lunch at the Dairy Queen in Clayton, New Mexico. The $5.00 special got us each a burger or chicken strips, french fries, a soda, and a sundae. We are living high!

    In Raton we hung a right and headed north on I25. Right away we ran into road work. To pass time while at a standstill for a quarter of an hour, we sang songs from YouTube karaoke style.

    From the Colorado border to Castle Rock we made great time. Joyce and I took a cat nap while Janet drove. Then we sang some more and solved a lot of the world's problems. In Castle Rock we changed drivers and soon thereafter hit Denver rush hour traffic. And rain. And the most spectacular double rainbow! ! !

    At a little after 8 p.m. we parked in front of Patsy and Dennis' house. We walked into the middle of Patsy's women's meeting, but they were happy to see us and wanted Patsy to introduce us. Then we went downstairs with Dennis and ate fresh veggies and rested from our travels. Patsy joined us after the ladies left and we all sat on her patio and started to make plans for tomorrow. But that is another foot print.

    Lazy Day on Chama Ct.

    June 11, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Today we visited and talked and talked some more. In the morning we sat on the patio, drank coffee, and watched the golfers parade by. Amy came by to visit us on her way to class. She's looking good.

    We kept talking, moved back into the house, and had breakfast. In between talking we somehow managed to get dressed before Tim arrived. (Of course, the sisters wore their shirts.) He talked to us about his disease, Charko-Marie-Tooth Syndrome, very matter of factly. He thinks Patsy has it, also, though she doesn't agree. The 5 of us made plans for tomorrow.

    Paige and Jesse came and went during the day. Paige had volley ball camp and flute lessons. Jesse gave us a trumpet concert. He plays well for a beginner.

    Chrissy and Wes joined us for supper, as did Stasi. Gary is working on the west side of the mountains. And all the while we kept talking.

    After a delicious steak and swordfish dinner with salad, veggies, baked potato, bread and cheesecake for dessert, we all played Left ,Right. Then we took a lot of pictures of the 5 siblings with lots of different devices. And we talked some more. Tim played piano for us off and on during the evening.

    We kissed and hugged everybody goodbye till no one was left except the sisters and Dennis. Dennis played the player piano and the sisters continued talking. Finally we began to run out of energy and any more talking has been postponed till tomorrow.

    Btw, the chocolate man is a little worse for the wear. He didn't like being left in the hot car. I'll have to post a picture of him tomorrow. We can't decide what to name him; but like Flat Stanley, he'll go with us everywhere.

    August 6-8

    August 8, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 68 °F

    Randy and I spent our 40th anniversary winding our way along the Big Thompson River, dropping from 7500 ft elevation to 5000, to arrive at Boyd Lake State Park in Loveland Colorado.
    Our site is large and shaded with a view of the lake. Monday was rainy so we spent the day sleeping in, relaxing and stocking up on provisions...Colorado peaches, yum! Tuesday we cycled the Loveland Recreation Trail then headed to Old Town Loveland for lunch and a long walk to admire the sculptures and murals in the area. We enjoyed a beautiful sunset during our evening stroll. Since arriving in Colorado we've had thunderstorms almost every afternoon. Not that we're complaining... better than roasting in Oregon.😊Read more
