This morning we went into Westminster (a north and west suburb of Denver) to lay claim to a spot at the Elks Club there. We did, but we're having second thoughts now. Its not in the best neighborhood and the sites are terribly close together. We drove over to the small city of Golden (home of Coors Beer) west of Denver to check out a private park that some of our RV friends will be staying at in the coming months. It is quite pricey and the sites are close, but its in a much better area with views of the wonderful mountains. What to do, what to do....
For lunch we found a sweet little Mexican restaurant on Golden's main street and sat outside in the warm sun debating the pros and cons of both places. There aren't many camping choices in the Denver area, we decided. Plenty of lovely state parks, but they only allow a 14 day stay and we want to be here for much longer. Oh well, stay tuned to see what we pick.
The weather today was sunny, breezy and a little chilly out of the sun. We managed to find a sunny sheltered spot for happy hour and Lewis did very well dealing with the occasional pogo stick boy sightings. Neither dog seemed bothered at all by the deer strolling all around us. Go figure.
It seems so long since we were able to sit outside, it felt really good today. Perhaps we've turned the weather corner.
