Friday & Sunday afternoon could’ve easily turned into one of those “let’s just lounge” kind of days. We were both tired & there’s still household things to be done – but if it’s late Fall and the sun is out and it’s still 60+ degrees outside? I’m taking advantage of the hand Colorado has dealt.
As always, the camera came along for the adventure. We decided to just walk. No planned destination & no route in mind. First stop – the neighborhood Park. I will spend a Lot of time on this sidewalk between easy miles & speedwork (Long Runs have a different designated trail); it’s less than half a mile from our house and, well, the pictures say it all:
After a loop around the park, we headed out and north. We found bookstores, coffee shops, bars, salons, autumn leaves, some crazy big houses & tons of apartment buildings.
One pleasant surprise was finding a branch of our favorite Boulder restaurant & brewery right up the street. We saw the logo, recognized it, walked in & that was it. One beer & one black bean burger later, I was a happy gal.
The Neighborhood Vine Street Pub:
Top that off with two ice-cream cones – walking by an ice-cream shop on the way home? Yes, we stopped – and it was the perfect new-neighborhood night!
Technically, we are in Denver’s “Capitol Hill”. Odd coincidence, no? 😉
