Our mundane trip into town turned out to be a lovely and unexpected stroll along the racing creek, we even got to wade in and get our feet wet! Cold.....it gave us an ice cream headache after just a few seconds but it was so worth it. We saw people (mostly young people) tubing down the fast moving creek, they must have been absolutely frozen!
As we approached the Washington Street bridge, really the Washington Street bridge underpass, the path was roped off because water had come up over the path. Do we behave or do we step over those ropes and continue our walk?
|these fish are actually on the sidewalk|
but Tuesday they were
swimming in the creek!
There were interesting brass sculptures along the water, swimming fish, deer, and a sweet gold miner kissing his mule (I couldn't get a good picture, too many people around it).
The sky was darkening and the wind began to pick up so we turned around and retraced our steps. Yes, we did walk in the water a bit more on the way back.
We made it back to Beluga before the rain arrived, but its imminent arrival made for a dramatic sky through our windshield.
I just love these days...the ones where you plan on doing one thing and then end up somewhere completely different - and way more fun! Plan A, plan B and serendipity! This retirement stuff is pretty good.
Thursday evening Erin had an appointment for a wedding gown fitting and she invited me to join her, her mom and "aunties". She looked so beautiful in her chosen dress, I'm glad I got to see her in it before she walks down the aisle. When the deed was done we drove up to Boulder to meet Dave and Jesse for dinner at "Basta", the restaurant that is catering the wedding. The bride was beautiful, the food was delicious, I can't wait for the big day!
