Earth laughs in flowers

By Carol Clark

"Earth laughs in flowers"
-Ralph Waldo Emerson


Breckenridge, Colorado, (unlike Breckenridge, Texas), the perfect place to spend a summer day away from the heat. We hiked up and down busy streets, spent way too much money in expensive shops, and took dozens of photos of brightly colored flowers that plastered the streets. They are all over this adorable mountain town and so vibrant with 72 degree afternoons and frequent rain showers.

Referred by a local, we ate lunch at "Fatty's". My husband, Olan, stepped right into the restaurant and asked the host if he was the head fatty. Surprisingly, he led us to a table instead of asking us to leave. We had the most amazing lunch while watching the FIFA World Cup. The game was getting exciting and the waitress irritated, so we had to order more drinks, (a frosty Mud Slide that was more like an ice cream float complete with whipped cream and a cherry). This may explain why they named this place "Fatty's".

At any rate, if you want to get out of the heat and see flowers that are not sun scorched, I highly recommend Breckenridge and remember to visit "Fatty's"..
Two tickets to paradise!
