Frenchy's Cafe

Our dear friends, Paul & Marsha from Virginia arrived yesterday to stay with us in the rig for 5 days. We are so excited to have them here with us, sharing this time and experience of this area.

Before they arrived, our camper, Susan went fishing. She loves to fish, but doesn't clean or eat them anymore. Lucky us, we were the recipient of a 19'' rainbow trout. We shared it with Paul & Marsha for dinner. Stuffed it with lemons & sliced onions, wrapped it in foil and put it on the BBQ. Was it scrumptious!

Today we took a drive up to the lake to show Paul & Marsha the surrounding area. We enjoyed a picnic up above the reservoir at our favorite spot. Drove around the end of the lake to Rivers End. Saw some more roads that Len and I want to explore later.

We decided to make the 8 mi trip back into the little town of Tin Cup. What a quaint town, one cafe & one store. It was a mining town established in 1903. Elevation 10,060. Four people reside here during the winter. Can't imagine the amount of snow they must get. Loved the rustic cabins and talk about a beautiful back drop...Wow!

The best thing about Tin Cup...The pie at Frenchy's Cafe. We had their special pie, Fruits of the Forest. Blackberries, apples, raspberries & rhubarb in the flakiest pie crust we'd ever tasted. It was $7 ala mode. What a treat! Well worth another trip up here later on. Mirror Lake is three miles from Tin Cup, so we'll be back to go exploring and have another piece of pie.

It was another great day shared with friends. We ended our day by enjoying an evening fire and roasting toasted coconut marshmallows. Yummy! Living our Dreams!
