A beautiful day to roll through Denver neighborhoods, visit Observatory Park and Place Bridge Academy, an innovative school for newly arrived immigrants run by the Denver Public Schools, before taking Tom in for a major service.
Like Seattle, Austin, and Nashville, Denver is a city growing on steroids. Folks say 1,000 people move here a week. The reaction among long-time residents like my sister is to avoid traffic: walk more places. Great idea! We walked to a local restaurant, Pioneer, and sat on the roof deck enjoying cheap draft beer and $5 Chicken Burritos with our friends Lisa and Bob. A very satisfying rest day indeed.
