A Weekend Get Away—-Monday, March 14, 2016

CottonWoodFor my birthday, in January our daughter and son-in-law, who live in Grand Junction, Colorado, gave me (and Terry) a one-night-stay at our favorite of all hot springs— CottonWood  in Buena Vista, Colorado.   Then they told us they were going to drive us to the Hot Springs and spend the time with us.  When would we like to go?

After much thought…from January until March… we decided the best time to go would be just after the cows leave and the heavy farm work starts.

So this last weekend they picked us up (our oldest daughter who now lives in our other house — she took care of the cats for us and took Boomer home to play with their dogs) and drove us to our wonderful weekend destination.

NOW!  We had a little surprise for Cliff (our son-in-law) because HIS birthday is this month.  So we gave to him (and Kimberly) one nights stay, also.  🙂  🙂

LoveIt was a lovely time!  We had yummy food in Buena Vista and a huge breakfast in Salida on Sunday–home by 2:00 on Sunday, all rested and refreshed ready to tackle the week.

Dipping-atAn excellent weekend!

From my world to yours!

  1. Short break but a good break. Nothing like “hot springs” to rejuvenate the
    aches and pains.
    The Artesian hot water baths at Moree (NSW) were famous for this therapy
    when I lived there as a kid, still a source if income for the northern NSW town.
    The men and women had different hot pools and the young brigade, about the
    age of Bladen, were forever getting into trouble for diving and bombing into the
    pools. Oh well kids are kids, ha ha.
    The Hot springs in the mountains of Taiwan near Kaohsiung are a tourist mecca
    for the locals and travellers – big rock pools in the ground and really full of people
    to the brim. Quite funny really, jammed in like sardines for the healing with real live
    monkeys watching the humans from the cliffs and the trees!!!
