Happy Independence Day

|Live music filled the Campground last night.
A group called the Pikes Peak Trikers (Three Wheel Motorcycles) is here at the campground and they brought in a band to play a variety of music last night.
The rain didn’t deter them from playing and the music was quite good.
We listened from the comfort of our RV.
After a good night of sleep, we were ready for some time in town.
We drove into Old Colorado City for the Farmer’s Market, where we made a few purchases.
Cheese for us and for our friends, Mike & Marian, a large Apple Schnitzel for breakfast tomorrow, same flavored wafers for Marilyn to snack on, and some freshly roasted peppers.
The aroma from those freshly roasted peppers made my mouth water.
We carried our treasure back to the car and then drove out to the beautiful city park called Garden of the gods.
We have never seen that park so crowded. It was bumper to bumper traffic all the way through the park, but the positive side of that was that Marilyn had lots of opportunities to snap pictures as we crawled along.
We decided to skip lunch in town, make a stop at the store, and head back to the Campground.
We shared a bite of lunch and then relaxed for awhile.
Around 4:00 we went to the Site of Ken & Jean where we joined them, along with Bob & Janet and Jesse & Ginger for snacks, cold drinks, and conversation, punctuated with raucous laughter.
The resort served a cookout with hotdogs, hamburgers, potato salad, pasta salad, chips, and a cookie.
They also hosted the ice cream social at 7:00 PM but Marilyn & I were fully packed and couldn’t eat another bite.
We passed on the ice cream and went home for a quiet evening.
We had just sat down when a knock on the door brought a Texas Sheet Cake, in the hands of our friend, Bob.
Of course it was Janet who baked the cake and we just HAD to have some of that.
Now I am even more stuffed.
Life is Good!
