In everything there is a season, and a time to every our latest season, with only a vague plan and a touch of creativity, we're off on another adventure. Half of this twosome is retired; my half will probably never know what that means. I promise to share.
Papa and Sadi in town by stream
My latest release is a romantic suspense set in a small town in Austria at the base of the Alps. I've been to the Alps and they are awesome, but I happen to think our Rockies are just as fabulous. This week we've been in a small town that although is a little farther than the base of the Rockies, is close enough that you can see them.

It's not the prettiest time of year for Trinidad. It's that pause between

winter and spring when the leaves aren't back on the trees, and the snow has melted to expose the colorless sleeping foliage. This little town had declined over the last few decades, but is now on an upward turn. It's an old city and picturesque. We've spent the week in a house that was built in 1896. Back then, there were no kitchen or bathrooms. The cook had to go outside to make meals. The house is now an upstairs apartment and a

two-story house with a basement. There are three bathrooms in the main house and a kitchen to love. The wood floor, built-ins, and woodwork is beautiful. Some of the windows have original stained glass.

We're happy to have family living here now. This week has been about

helping with the moving and unpacking. Future trips will be about exploring the area and getting deeper into those breathtaking Rockies.

Glimpse of the Rockies
My pictures aren't too astounding. I snapped a few but we didn't do any real sightseeing this week. 

I'm thinking I might just have to write a series set in the Rockies...bound to be a healthy dose of suspense and romance in such a breathtaking area.


  1. I'm ready to go back and sit in a rocker and rock while taking in the view. Sigh

  2. I love the pictures, Brenda. Reminds me a bit of my old hometown.

  3. The Rockies are awesome, any time of the year!

  4. Hi Brenda, Beautiful pictures!Love reading about your travels. :)

  5. Glad you have found some positives in your new life. You have such a great attitude. And I'm sure it will be lovely there in the summer, and a good source of writing inspiration
