Because both of our children
had their other families in town for
Christmas Day, and because we had
already had our Gibson family Christmas,
David and I decided to explore
a little town in Colorado that we had heard
about called Salida.
|We left home on Christmas Day at about noon.|
We fortified ourselves with lunch and lots
of car snacks because we didn't know if
there would be anything open
on Christmas evening.
|We were pleasantly surprised to find|
a little Italian restaurante just
a short distance from our motel
which was open on Christmas.
Does anyone know what
New England Style Dining is?
We couldn't figure it out.
|A local Methodist church|
had this unique Nativity scene all carved out
|Yes, this is real snow.|
It was VERY cold.
|Poor baby Jesus looks cold.|
|The town was very quaint.|
|These statues were very unusual.|
|Perhaps the funniest thing we saw was this|
sign by the elevator in our motel.
Hope your Christmas Day was as full of surprises
as ours was.
