... s castle home in Colorado Springs. It was a fun get together.
Wednesday, Sept. 18th, was the day to have some minor repairs on our tow at the Subaru dealer. Friend Bill Morr, cousin, Bill Baum & Kate joined us for a sushi dinner downtown.
Thursday Sept. 19th, was spent reprovisioning our motorhome at all the wonderful store options that we hadn't seen in our travels since leaving California.
Kansas is our next stop.
... and the whole time I was at the end of the line, I felt really creeped out! You were creeped out? Try being at the end when something growls behind you! And about that growl, Oscar's dad had said that he had heard of that happening before.

This was our third stay here and it gets better each time. We stayed in the first floor suite with a patio/balcony overlooking the river. Friendly, clean, welcoming, warm, comfortable and very good value for money. What more can anyone want; oh, yes, it is in Manitou Springs which is such a friendly, attractive place to stay.
