Continuing New Year's at Home

We bid a fond farewell to the Brown Palace Sunday after breakfast and headed south for home. On the way, we "had to" stop at Scileppi's at the Old Stone Church in Castle Rock, a favorite Italian restaurant that really is in an old stone church. The big outing the next day (Jan 3rd) was a trip up to the top of Pikes Peak via The BROADMOOR Manitou and Pikes Peak Cog Railway. That really is an incredible trip. On the way home from that we had lunch at Jake & Telly's Greek Cuisine in Old Colorado City. Great Greek restaurant, love the Saganaki appetizer (flambe cheese). Wrapping up the stay was a delicious dinner at La Taverne in the Broadmoor Hotel, breakfast at the Club, and completing the big move of Lynn's quilting area from way downstairs to way upstairs. More light! And Sandy and she had time to get Lynn started on the "paper piecing" quilt she's wanted to do for some time. All the photos after the Brown Palace start here.
