Time for a little catch up and a day trip to Durango.

Just a quick reminder, we have started a YouTube channel. It’s certainly in its infancy stage for sure and will be going through some growing pains but go check it out and we would appreciate it if you would subscribe while there. Here is a link. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWqRmO1rO4cu3rFANF1iG6Q

Well dang, I think we will do something that we don’t like to do to fix something else we don’t like to do, does that make sense? Sort of that Rob Peter to pay Paul thing I guess.

What are we talking about, well, we don’t like to be behind on the blog so I think we will keep this update short text wise and let the pictures and links do the talking so we can start getting caught up.

Because it was only 50 miles to Durango from our campground and because we like Durango so much we had to make a day trip.

We walked to downtown streets and popped in and out of a few shop’s, something that we really have been avoiding since the COVID thing kicked in gear but ALL of the downtown Durango shops REQUIRED masks to even entre the store so we felt pretty good about that and indulged ourselves.

We even treated ourselves to a sit down lunch, something we had not done since all of this craziness started. But to be honest it wasn’t all that great. We both had the Green Chili Chicken Burritos but at one point I had to ask Diane if she tasted chicken. The meat and chili was basically pureed and I couldn’t really swear just WHAT we were eating.


















After lunch we both saw a frozen yogurt stand and decided that might be a good thing to get the taste of lunch out of our mouth LOL!! Of course we would have thought a stop here was a good idea regardless.

We also found our way to a small vegetable stand we knew of and picked up a few things and while we were walking to the car we both stopped, lifted our ears to the sky and said almost simultaneously, PICKLEBALL!!

Yup, we knew that the Pickleball play in Durango and been moved from one of the smaller schools in town to a new location but had no real idea where but as luck would have it, it was right across the street from the vegetable stand.

So of course we had to walk over to check it out and wouldn’t you know it, we knew a couple people at the courts so we had to chat it up a bit before moving on.

And we had to head down to the walkway by the river. We actually like walking it for a few miles but during this visit we just had time to chill and watch a few rafters and tubers float by before we needed to head towards home.

It was a good day and we knew that once we hit our next destination that we would make another trip back over to spend a day so we didn’t feel the need to squeeze any more in.

You know, I have decided to break our quick get caught up update into 2 parts because I know the second part is going to have a bunch of pictures so that it for now. Be sure to stop back in.

    Thanks for all the time and effort you put into this blog. It is a wealth of information. Your blog is number one on my list to follow.

  2. Was that frozen yogurt in the cup? What was the topping? Has it been extremely hot there?

  3. Dave & Diane says:

    Yes it was, the toppings were butter finger chunks, M&M’s and those ball things were Boba balls. We had never had Boba Balls before so the little cup off to the side was a taster of another flavor. They were actually pretty good.
    Hot, well for here I guess we had a spell but we are talking in 80’s. It’s been in the high 70’s to mid 80’s most of our stay with a mid afternoon shower many days.
