Saturday August 1, 2015-Mountain Views at Rivers Edge RV Resort

We had a great Last Supper with Dave and Nancy last night at the Cottonwood Cove. This place is a guest ranch, cabin rental and RV park, as well as a very good restaurant. The business was established in 1943 and the building appears to be original. Stella and I have eaten here before but Dave and Nancy had not. We enjoyed our meal with our good friends and we came back home where Stella fixed us her recipe of fried ice cream and it turned out stupendous! We stayed outside until the daily rain clouds threatened.

Dave came out a little after 8 to finish up his putting away and packing to leave this morning and I just watched him work. He had done most everything last night, so it didn't take him long to get finished. They were hooked up and ready to go a bit after 9. After hugs and handshakes, they were on their way out of the park and on their way to New Mexico for the night. We are sorry to see them go, but they've been gone from home almost 4 months. We'll make full timers out of them yet!

We had so much fun with them this month! We explored lots of scenic areas and saw awesome sights including moose and deer. We will definitely return here at some point in the future. They still have some things, like their Internet service that needs improvement. I complained about it the last time we stayed here and they have made some progress but it can still be better.

Stella made some great corn chowder made with fresh Olathe sweet corn. Colorado is about the only place that we've found Olathe corn and we always love it. Thank goodness for Internet recipes!

So long.
