What I did on my holidays -- Day 2, Boulder, Colorado

Today was the first day of G's course, so he had to be up bright and early to wait for the minibus to the university.

I, meanwhile, had a leisurely breakfast and then trundled out into downtown Boulder again. I discovered that the shops don't open until 10.00 am, so I ambled around the Pearl Street Mall for a little while and then did a tour of the shops.

It was a nice change to be browsing American West themed gifts and souvenirs, as opposed to Welsh/Celtic or Olde Englishe ones. I did manage to find a very nice necklace to go with the new dress I bought for M's wedding, so that was a great success.

I lunched on a tuna salad sandwich, then ambled on right up to the end of Pearl Street and then followed the Creek Path into Eben Fine park. I sat here for a bit, watching everyone enjoying the sun and water. The in thing seems to be whooshing down the little rapids on big inner tubes. I read for a bit and then ambled all the way down the Creek trail to Canyon Blvd and hence the long trek back to the motel.

I will now go and see if my brain can conjure up any words for the WIP while I wait for G to return from his day of study.
