I HAVE 4 SPOTS OPEN FOR JULY 4.
Many times when our campers arrive they would like their hair and nails done. Usually they are unable to get an appointment. Plan ahead. Here are the numbers of "The Salon, LTD"-719-742-3019 "A Taylor Made Haircut"-Taylor is a barber-719-742-3289.
Aly's is a restaurant that one always needs a reservation. Excellent place. Her number is 719-742-3742
Downtown is getting ready for the season. New this year is a flower shop. It looks like a new shop may be opening on the corner of Francisco and Main. We'll see. Charlie's has laid new flooring and reorganized the shelving. Looks wonderful. Bob's Deli is moving where the mexican food restaurant was and will be serving dinner in the evenings.
Farm to Table Bakery is going to have a few evening hours this summer. The Timbers in Cuchara will have it's fabulous menu again. Scot and Lauren are doing a wonderful job up there. I'm sure Sammi's will be having their famous fried chicken on Sunday. Sharon and Greg will be serving their breakfast sandwiches and lunch meals at Paradise Coffee. La Plaza in Walsenburg will be open once again. A short drive from La Veta but worth the trip.
Bottom line is, there should be plenty of places to eat this year.
We are planting a real garden this year in the ground. Let's hope my dream of having fresh veggies for all of you will come true. The greenhouse is looking rather pathetic due to the winds and snow at the moment but we do have the parts to repair it. It will be my herb garden greenhouse.
The snow should be completely gone by tomorrow in all the sunny areas. Officially open Saturday so I am scurrying around getting my info sheet, reservation cards, and items set up in the shop. Where has the time gone!! Have 30 new movies to add to our vast collection. There will be some for sale again this year for the great price of 2 for $1.
Denny has been so busy painting, laying carpet, cleaning up limbs and fighting with a woodpecker who is poking holes in one of the buildings. So far it is Woodpecker 5 Denny 0.
Time to scurry. See you all soon. Call 719-742-3233 or reserve online www.circlethewagonsrvpark.com
