This week we had our local orientation in Denver and finally got to settle in to this place we will be calling home! This weeks post will be a story told in pictures and captions because -cliche moment- a picture says a thousand words am I right? And let’s face it, everyone likes a good picture book now and then. For your enjoyment:
“Nobody smiles when you run by them” – Helen and I took a morning run to Sloans Lake where you get a city view going one way and mountains going back. We were also taught that where we come from people must be friendlier runners
“Maybe we’ll walk that last hill” – breaking up the inclines during our bike ride for views like this
“Mountain lions are usually only a concern for dogs or children….so Helen watch out” – our breathtaking campsite at Cottonwood Lake for our orientation retreat
“I think this is the best breakfast we’ve ever had on this trip” – the picture speaks for itself; we ate like kings and queens
So so much more happened in this week that was not documented in pictures. But the intangible happening was that 5 strangers became a community. “Here’s to red ships and blue ships but the best ships are friendships”
YAV a nice day!
