The past several days have been pretty relaxed for us, so not enough to write about each day to warrant a new blog every day.
Here's a little bit about what we've been doing...
Monday - We started planning out our meals and went on a big food shop...we are a little limited as I don't have some of the kitchen utensils or machines I'd like to make certain things..but it all costs money!! We now have no chocolate ...
... the pass which is a mountain road with switchbacks and steep drops, then eventually you end up in Aspen.
We left around 10 am and started the drive...even before the pass it was so beautiful with views of mountains, lakes, and all different coloured leaves on the trees. A lot of trees have started to lose their leaves so probably was much more colourful a few weeks ago.

Eventually we had to walk on the highway hard shoulder again until we got to our place....at least now we know for sure that both directions have no footpath for us to access the town...we really wanted to avoid having to drive but not sure walking on the hard shoulder when its snowy and dark is going to be the best idea either!

It was so lucky to reach the Rockies when the Aspen trees were wearing their golden colour. It does not happen for long so I enjoy my week there with Pickles and for few days with Theo before he flew back to London.

Love to window shop. They are very expensive but they are so different to anything we see at home, it is enjoyable to see what is on offer and at what price. They certainly cater for those on a million dollar plus income that's for sure.
