Boomer’s Ramblin’s “My Vacation”

So, I was gone for a couple of weeks. I went to Colorado, Aurora to be exact. I went to visit my best girl Deborah. Her birthday was on the 28th I wanted to help her celebrate it. I was actually there for two weeks, it was the first time in a couple of years that I have gotten out of town.

She had to work most of the time I was there. We were able to see each other from time to time and we had some good times. I did have to do some things on my own. I visited the Coors Brewery, and the Botanical Gardens.

The tour is free and self-paced after which their is the lounge in which you are allowed to sample up to three different beers. Of course you can have three of the same if you wish. That to me seems like kind of a waste though. My favorite was Colorado’s own it is a darker beer with plenty of robust flavor. Some dark beers are a little too stout and can be quite heavy, however not this one.

The Botanical Gardens were a variation of many different types of plants. There is the herbal garden, the African Gardens, the Asian Gardens, they have the Scripture Gardens, well so many wonderful flowers, & trees. So many different types of plants from all over the world, it was beautiful. I got some pictures that as soon as I have them developed I will get them in here.

There are a few places I wanted to go that due to the fires and the danger they presented, I was not able to see. The Garden of the Gods, Seven Falls, and there is also a cave tour. The Cave of the Winds. They have two different tours the first is the more modern version. It takes about 45 minutes. The second is the Lantern Tour it takes about an hour and a half. If I remember right the first one is $12 and the Lantern tour is $18. I would have loved the latter.

I do have to admit there were a few things I did not do. To be totally honest I felt bad here I am trying to have a good time and there are so many displaced people. Last count I heard over 600 homes were lost. I did want to go to the Downtown Aquarium. I really did not think I wanted to go myself and as I said earlier my friend got stuck at work most of the time I was there.

A few of the things I might have done with or without company the 16th street mall, and the Zoo. I actually put off mainly due to the 100+ degree temps we had for five days straight. When it finally cooled down it was still in the 90’s.  All in all I had a pretty good time getting to know more of the area and all the numerous things there are to do there.

A small list, rafting, glider tours, amphitheaters, shops and parks. Anyway I am definitely looking forward to my next trip there.

About Bigboomer

Hello, first of all I would like to thank you for visiting my blogsite. I am going to tell you a little about me. My name is Ray, I started writing back in high school. Every once in a while I would come up with a few ideas and would write them down. Most of which became poems others became short stories. Some of my inspirations are of the heart, some of them come from the thoughts of the day. You will see, as you browse threw my site my poetry is about as diverse as you can get. I hope that as you read them some will have you thinking of love, while others will make you feel sorrow. I would like some of them to set you off to an adventure. Finally, I have some poems that may make you hungry. I do have some inspirations that just plane turn into ramblings or rants as, if you read in here, you will see. I have managed to get two books published so far, the first one is titled Pathways, it may be found at xlibris.com/RayBohdan.html. there you can view a couple of excerpts form the book. The second book is Mingling Hues of My Mind it is at publish America A little bit more about me. I am fifty-one years old I have three children, Rainney, Elisa, and Anthony and two well, actually, three grandchildren Raeanne Marie, Graycee, and Amaya. I guess I could go on, but then I am afraid this will come out sounding like a dating profile. Part of my site will be dedicated to my poetry, I plan to break it down into different sections and organize it by type/style. Another section of this site will be dedicated to my blog it will be about my rants/thoughts of the day. These will vary from political, to personal, to comical. I will talk about most anything and everything that I feel may be of interest to someone. I also will devote a section to some of my favorite recipes with hints on how to capture his/her heart by winning their stomach. My favorite foods are Italian and Mexican, but this section will not be limited to those two types. I do believe however, that the most important part of my site will be the dedication pages. These will be to memorialize special loved ones and friends, as well as thank those that have made purchases of my afore-mentioned book. This is exactly what you think it is. A way for me to sell my self as a writer. Publicly get my words and thoughts out into the world. Please believe me when I say that this in no way demeans or diminishes my passions for the people and the love of which I have written, and will continue to write. I trust that once you read my poems you will feel the love i have felt, the pains I have been through, and the joys of life itself. Once again I thank you for stopping by please enjoy.
