(oops...I got carried away...let me start over)
(but it did adopt me!)
So, I got to spend a few days with one of my favorite daughters
in one of my
favorite places on earth.
What a most marvelous combination!!
got a view of her everyday life.
I had the opportunity to meet neighbors,
and sit on the sunny porch sipping morning coffee
while watching the leaves change from day to day
on the surrounding mountains.
I met numerous co-workers and bosses...
and now know why Rachel loves her job.
I ate delicious food at their sidewalk counter,
while watching the locals and tourists mingle together.
Took a fake pic of me with one of the Lab's specialty beers
...but I was busted because Rach forgot to crop out my tea!
Rachel had to work a lunch shift one day,
so I strolled the streets...
and fell in love...
One of the days,
after a brunch at Joseph's place,
(and to think I almost balked at the crabcake egg benedict...
dreams are made of food like this!)
Rachel and I strolled arm in arm
Enjoying each other...
...and the views!
And ended a day at a quaint wine bar
listening to some fantastic music by
But least you think we spent all of our time downtown,
Part II will be coming
and frolickng dogs.
