Marilyn’s doggies, Ginger and Buffy hopped in the car and off we went. It was my maiden voyage to Durango by myself, down the steep, rocky hill.
I managed okay, with heavy concentration on the gears and steady driving through the center of the road. The winter months are more of a challenge in these parts.
I remember our house, in Vallecito, when the snow got so deep, the front deck had a high snow bank that prohibited getting into the front door. Well, I did get in. I just climbed on top of the hill, reached over and opened the door, and slid in. I saw where the entrance to our old house has been improved. I’ll get over to that road one of these days and take a photo of the house.
Anyway, Ginger and Buffy went to doggy day care while I went shopping for some warmer clothing. It’s not cold here yet, but will be real soon. I had only a pair of rubber thongs and a pair of sandals. Now I have tennis shoes and a pair of loafers.
This will do until cold weather sets in.
I took the photos here of Vallecito Lake, near where we lived and not far from Marilyn’s house. It’s a beautiful lake and I have many beautiful memories of it.
