The Year of Love continues…

So this last weekend, Stan and I were able to enjoy two more of our engagement gifts, all various experiences or unusual items of Colorado. On Friday we drove down to Denver to go punting on Cherry Creek, known at Venice on the Creek, put on by The Greenway Foundation. The 40 minutes ride takes you from Larimer St to past Wazee St, through two locks, with narration about the history of the Creek and Denver from a member of the River Rangers, high school students who also do ecological educational programs. Margie and Dave joined us and we had a lovely ride. Our boat happened to be one that came from England, though the others we saw on the Creek were built in CO. They have finished for the year, but if you’re a local, you should give it a try. Thanks Margie & Dave.

On Sunday, we attended The Comedy of Errors at the Colorado Shakespeare Festival on the campus of the University of Colorado, Boulder. The play was great, and even though we were there on a quite warm evening, we had great seats (that were on the aisle and not in the sun). The play is very silly, but much fun and we had a lovely time. During the first act, we had a 20 minutes delay because of a medical situation in the audience. They actually asked for a ‘doctor in the house’ who happened to be sitting two rows in front of us. We were told that he was going to be fine, although the EMTs did take him to the ER. It might have been heat related as he was an older gentleman sitting where the sun was shinning for the first 20 minutes of the show. Still a great time. Thanks Doyce & Kate.
