Last Part of Two Lindas Visit

The Two Lindas fed us well during their time with us...well, Jim had to eat a few bologna and PBJ's to get by, but I loved all the veggie meals.  They even introduced me to vegetarian bacon by Morningstar that was very good. We had BLT's one night for dinner.

One of their last nights here we went to Cottonwood Cove for dinner. It's located about half way between South Fork and Creede. We'd never eaten there before and it was a nice treat.
When we arrived these boys were enjoying an before dinner treat...double dipped ice cream cones.
They have a nice gift store with lots of neat stuff.

 Inside the restaurant is situated in what was the sitting room of the original lodge.

Since I am allowing myself to continue to eat fish The Two Lindas and I had the catfish platter with cole slaw, beans and hush puppies, while Jim had their chicken fried steak with beans and mashed potatoes.  Both meals were very good.  We will return.

 After dinner we went across the street to Wagon Wheel Gap so Jim could take a "trip down memory lane".  Jim's parents rented a cabin here every summer.  His dad would work in Alamosa during the week and come up here on the weekends.  Jim and his brothers enjoyed their freedom fishing, hiking and this is where Jim learned how to drive, in his dad's old Jeep.  Jim has many fond memories of this place.

This is cabin #21 which is where he spent many a summer.  Now these cabins are personally owned.

The Two Lindas stayed till Friday so they could have one evening with the Abeytas before The Two Lindas go on up to Wyoming.  We are so happy they take vacation and come see us every summer.  We'll see them again in south Texas after they finish a job in Corpus Christie and we'll be gate guarding in Whitsett.  It is so nice to be able to visit our friends as we move across the country.

Remember, you are loved.

    Howdy B&J,
    Yes, you too can go 'home' again, especially where so much of your 'growing-up' occurred. I only have the memories, as most of my life is now in sub-divisions or apartments and the creeks are widened sluices; so as long as my memories hold out, I can go back.. Yet, the older I get the more memories I lose... But just remeber, y'all are too, also...


I really enjoy reading comments so please take a moment and say HI or something so I know someone is reading this thing.
