365/187 Thursday June 9, 2009

Since our car decided to act up we became stranded in Grand Junction Colorado today. After hours at the repair shop we found it would be morning before the part arrived from Denver and noon before we'd be on the road again. So we rented a car and went to explore, who knew this is home to many vineyards (and of course tasting rooms). We had fun sampling, bought some to either drink along the trip or take home. The most unusual was at the Meadery of the Rockies which makes theirs from honey! No grapes! Very interesting process and not bad stuff to boot!.
Tonight we wandered downtown to Main Street to walk the five blocks designated no traffic for the Farmers market. Oh how we wished we could take the beautiful produce and fruits that we saw with us, but the heat would just destroy them in the car. Wonderful outpouring of townspeople with their booths of food, pastries, fruit, produce etc. Each block had musicians sharing their talent or local artists sitting quietly in the shade painting. This is a place we will definitely come back to. So I guess being stranded wasn't a bad thing after all!
