Breckenridge


We haven't taken a little sightseeing trip for awhile so thought you would enjoy going to Breckenridge. It is a ski town so in the winter it is packed with skiers but in the summer it's fun to go strolling around town, visiting all the little shops and having a nice lunch in one of the unique restaurants. The picture above is of Dillon Reservoir through my car window. That's me driving. These silly pictures are completely out of order so bear with me.
This is one of three houses that were for sale. The other two are further down. I tried to keep them together but.....

We thought it would be fun to take a ride in the gondola but it wasn't open. I think they may have been making sure it was ready for the ski rush so we just watched it for awhile wishing we could go for that ride. It would have been a beautiful day for it. So sunny with a pretty blue sky.

There is a lovely stream running through town.

See the snow on the mountain top? After this past week, I'm sure there is more now. We had snow over 6000' but down here we escaped the early stuff.

Dillion Reservoir is on the way to Breckenridge. It is man made and I remember when they flooded the area many years ago. There is a lot of boating and fishing there.

These are the other two houses for sale. They were all three in a nice little row. I would have loved to venture inside and dream. Mountain property is so expensive. We saw one two bedroom two bath for almost 500,000!!

It was a beautiful day and we stopped and had lunch in a lovely Bistro after trying on fur coats in a boutique. Of course I didn't buy one but it was loads of fun.

Has anyone ever matchrf up or tried to match up a b-dazzle? They sure scramble your brain. I was trying to match this one and I guess Anna decided I should just give up, so she jumped up, messed up the pieces and then just lay down on them. Geez, thanks Anna, I just may have gotten all the pieces in the right places this time. Thanks to Cheryl, I've had lots of entertainment this weekend. I am determined to match them all up. I'll keep you posted. I may not have any hair left though.

Thanks for taking us along to Breckenridge. I loved looking at the houses and, like you, I would have loved to go inside and look around.

I think Anna is a little jealous for your attention. That puzzle is like having a new baby in the house. Poor Anna!

Dear Judy,
I love the photos and the town and the houses and little stream. I also love your cat...we have one that looks like yours but yours has a little more hair. They are very regal looking cats don't you think.
Thank your for leaving sweet comments on my blog. I really appreciate your kindness.
Hugs,
Pat

Dear Judy~ You've been out and about.
The stream with the rocks reminded me of the streams in Provo canyon in Utah. They use to run all through Sundance(Redfords ski resort). I haven't been back in a hundred years, but was told... they've removed all the streams for more shops. That was sad to me, cause it was a breathtaking and wonderful place to picnic.

The weather/sun looked nice for Fall. I enjoyed the tour, hope to see more.

Sweet wishes,
Sara

Hi Judy...there isn't anything like God's majestic beauty! That scenery is gorgeous! I like all sorts of greens. In fact, my mom just "fixed a mess" for us. She always mixes several kinds together, that way the taste isn't too overpowering! I know that Kale was delicious.

Please stop by the farmhouse on Monday to see what I have left for you. I do hope you will join in the fun!
