It was another Golden Stay-cation Weekend! 

In between working on house projects, we .....
Golfed at first light, Saturday morning at Foothills Golf Course!  
Enjoyed watching cool golf course wildlife!  A moma raccoon and 5 babies!!  
Window shopped around at the Clear Creek art fair!  
Ended the weekend with a "Boys vs Girls" golf scramble with our friends Don and Mindy at our home course, Fossil Trace! 

Even better, the Girls lost and bought supper!!! 

That doesn't happen very often!!!

Pickles and more Pickels

Last year was a bumper crop of apples.  The year before that was zuchini.  This year it is cucumbers!
Joanne has been very busy learning how to make pickles!
She has giving them out to every neighbor that she spots walking by, and I think there will be enough for holiday gifts as well!

Summit County Weekend continued inn Breckenridge

Joanne and I continued our get-away to Summit County in Breckenridge.
We went on a very pretty hike to Mohawk Lakes just a couple miles south of Breckenridge.  Then we checked into a nice bed and breakfast close to main street.

While unloading our bags I noticed movement on the 2nd floor of an abandoned old building.

A family of 4 fox were using the old building as a home, and totally accustomed to people walking by!

I forced Joanne to walk by the old building every chance we could to try to sneak a peak!

Summit County stay over with the Saylors

Last week we decided to do a Summit County vacation weekend, heading up into the mountains just an hour west of our home in Golden.
We started with a stay over at my long time oil industry friend's home - Scott and Jeanette Saylor in Frisco.  Followed by a very fun game of golf at Keystone River Course.

Scott and Jeanette have built an incredible home in Frisco, where Jeanette pursues her passion of skiing.  She is currently the top master's level women skier in the US and has been for numerous years.

Joanne, Jeanette and I played a best ball scramble against Scott for a tie!  We are either improving or he is slowing down in his old age!!!
