Durango Haiku

Everyone loves Durango
Grass seems greener there

Mr. E and I visited friends in Durango recently who bought their retirement home there.

They have a few years until their actual retirement to work on the place,

 to have music gatherings on the deck,

and to enjoy the train going by several times a day…
as well as going hiking, and biking, and swimming, and eating, and shopping, and participating in the Irish jams on Sundays, and visiting the hot springs and orchards down the road…
It is truly a magnificent place to hang out and we look forward to many more opportunities to do so with such amazing friends!
