It's summertime and everyone's downing tools and heading for the hammock (if only). Do you take regular vacations from writing and if so do you enjoy them?
SPOILER ALERT: This blog post will have nothing to do with writing and everything to do with vacations. Specifically, mine.
Now, did somebody mention vacation?
I just got back from a week in the Denver area, visiting my older son who has a summer internship at a medical center there.
We had a swell time.
We went to the Denver Botanic Gardens, and saw some very cool blown glass from somebody named Chihully.
We ascended Pike’s Peak, all 14,110 feet of it. (We didn’t hike it, but drove a rental Ford Focus. Which, I think, was more strenuous than hiking.)
We saw some animals we don’t usually run across (and we avoided running across them in our rental car): marmots, prairie dogs, black-billed magpies.
We drove up and down Colfax Avenue, which made me appreciate where I live very much.
And we did not stop for any hitchhikers!
A good time was had by all!
