Hi Prime Timers! Good God it’s been hot! We’re fortunate that here in Colorado it cools down at night. I was thinking back to the summers in Northeast Pennsylvania where I grew up. Specifi cally the days when the temperature was high and the humidity sometimes even higher. We didn’t have air conditioning so sleeping was defi nitely a challenge. I remember lying there as beads of sweat would drip into my ears. There was NO relief. Ah the good old days…
Life seems to be gradually returning to “normal”. Deb and I had the opportunity to travel into the city to meet old friends from PA who started their vacation in Denver. They wanted to see a Rockies game at Coors fi eld and then headed for Colorado Springs the next day. Deb and I took the train from Commerce City to Union Station and met them at LoHi Steakbar where we had a delicious meal and wonderful conversation. After we said our goodbyes and wished each other well on our journeys we enjoyed a stroll back to Union Station. I’m not familiar with the LoHi neighborhood but it looked like a lot of fun. We passed Little Man Ice Cream and were amazed at the size of the crowd. We’re putting that on the where to go list!
The night before, Deb and I took the train to see a Rockies game with friends. Perfect! I’ve actually walked a longer distance from the parking lot going to Coors Field than the 2.5 block walk from Union Station. It’s great to have the option to take public transportation into the city as well as other locations in the Denver Metro Area. It’s certainly more cost effective AND there was no stress from driving 25 or parking :)… Loving the RTD!!
