View from our home - pretty in sunshine


We left Montrose Friday morning in the rain & had rain most of the way to Grand Junction. Luckily, it wasn't raining when we got to Junction West RV Park & set up for our stay here. This was the first rain we've driven through on our journey so we've been very lucky.

It was cloudy/rainy yesterday so we did our shopping. We'd been told that we shouldn't miss the new Cabela's in Grand Junction so we stopped there. Shortly after we entered the store, Judi saw a woman she thought was an old friend from school in Bishop, CA, & it turned out she was right - Linda Lorton Million & her husband Bob have lived in Grand Junction for the past 40 years & they go to Cabela's almost every Saturday morning. We talked for awhile & exchanged phone numbers with plans to get together later for a good visit

After lunch we toured the wineries in Palisade. We intended to visit the fruit stands in Palisade but they were all closed for the season - so we made do with the wineries. Ha!

This morning we're going to church & then get some work done around the house this afternoon. With the weather clearing up (the sun is shining this morning), we'll be headed out to see the Colorado National Monument tomorrow.

More later...
