I meant to post a couple pics of our time at the Rally......but since that is so far in past history, here's just this one of the wagons round the campsite. You can see the low clouds and gray conditions.
And this is from our drive over the mountains as the snow fell and eventually grew to a few inches
but the road remained wet.
As soon as we landed in Cobble Creek, I joined an army of dedicated women in getting ready for a lovely English tea in the upper level of the Clubhouse. Hope West Kids, a division of Hospice, was the selected charity and two young ladies, all dressed in their finest spoke eloquently about how the Good Grief Camp and support group had helped them. I should have taken a pic of the flowers and tea cups and the crowd of women, young and old, in their tea finery. It was all very lovely and very successful. Right after this picture, it hailed for 20 minutes. Luckily, just small bits but did cover the ground.
It has been very welcoming to come back into the community. I meet the familiar faces and their dogs on my morning walk and we are greeted warmly wherever we go. Pickle ball is getting organized, Mah Jongg is growing to 3 tables, Ladie's , Men's and Couple's golf beckons and the hiking group is making big plans for the summer and fall and beyond..... It's a very dynamic place and one we're glad we discovered.
And, we have found that Gail and Lee have converted to Plant Based eating. They are the couple who winter in Belize and moved here from Gunnison along with Buffy, the massive buffalo head that greets all who enter their home. She's not sure what she'll do with all the elk they have in the freezer !! Now, if we can get our on site restaurant to offer some healthier food....... We did go out the other night to a new Mexican restaurant and they had several items on the menu that fit our way of eating perfectly....oh happy day.!!
I'm enjoying the garden centers and their huge array of familiar flowers. So good to see the hanging baskets of geranium, million bells, wave petunias, lobelia and the flowering shrubs and trees and hosta. I have new large pots for the patio and am planning the arrangements. The hummingbird feeder is up and we see a few. We still need furniture out there before you can join us for a sunset glass of wine. Hope you're thinking of stopping by once again.....
