We had reservations at the Dusty Rose Tea Room in Georgetown at 11:30, so getting our act together to check out was not so very hard. Jeannette the owner met us and shared with us that she had a family illness so the Tea Room was closed but she was keeping our reservation. It nearly broke my heart, rarely do who do not love me, treat me that selflessly. The Tearoom (http://dustyrosetearoom.com/index.php?main_page=page&id=2&chapter=1) is one of those places that makes my heart sing, it is decorated with plenty of lace, antiques and lovely china.
From there we drove though Guanella pass and had one last gander an God's grace in sharing beauty with us mortals!
So now time to come back to reality, we had laundry to do. Water is so scarce in Georgetown that we had to drive to Idaho Falls to do laundry, where we found ( thanks too the staff at the hotel) a laundromat. So much quicker than I hoped, we had some clean clothes to take with us to Denver. The trip back across Denver was busy, stop and go , but relatively uneventful. We took a taxi to the hotel from the airport and the driver was a immigrant from Ethiopia 25 years ago and a very nice fellow.
So the Sheraton Downtown Denver had a high bar to meet, but so far it is mot measuring up, not even close. There is no refrigerator, little storage space and we have double beds in spite of asking for a queen or king bed. In addition there was 2 sugars and 2 creamers to add to Starbucks coffee, seriously?
We got here so late that dinner was cheese and crackers and a glass of wine. The glasses here are a little broad in the bottom, so good for red wine. I am looking foreword to an early morning to find out who to give the auction items for the Foundation Auction to and get registered for the conference.
