aka Sheryl’s birthday.

Spending the first day of retirement celebrating Sheryl’s birthday in Estes Park Colorado is a good way to begin the proceedings.

I began the day with a ride around Estes Lake. I was surprised, and thrilled, to see a bald eagle early in the ride!

Sheryl and I had her favorite for breakfast, Eggs Benedict, and then went for a nice drive in the afternoon. We had a great Thai dinner and ended the day with a good bottle of wine.

I could get used to this!
