OK, it's been a while since I've posted. We have been here a while, now, and have a different view. We still love the place. It's cool, clouds come over us regularly, and it snows unpredictably and often. We like all that. Like small-towners, we delight in the possibility of a new restaurant (in this case, Dusty Boots Cafe), and hope it maintains good food and great service, which is a hard thing to do. We try to limit our trips down the hill and stay up here as much as possible. We are big fans of every evening's sunset over the white sands, and every morning's sunrise. In general we're happy.
We're leery of the water - we already know too much. We're also protective of the rain, knowing that down the hill, with their phenomenal growth, they need every drop. We're curious about the steady stream of store-owners buying in, or leaving, our little downtown. We're curious about how the town runs and how to become a more integral part of it. For the moment I'm working down the hill at Alamo High School. But I've got my eyes on finding ways of staying up here.
More soon. Pictures coming!
