Scuba Man and I obviously have a thing for towns called Avon. The beach house is in Avon, North Carolina. In August of 2006, we took a vacation and fell in love with the town of Avon, Colorado. Here’s why:
* On the drive to Aspen, we drove through the mountains instead of taking the main highways. Some of the roads were pretty scary. You can’t tell from the picture, but right as you started to round the hairpin curve, the road was actually crumbling on the outside, to the point that the paint that marks the lane had completely crumbled away. Scuba Man, being the fast driver he is, took the curve a little to fast for my comfort. That, combined with the crumbling curve, produced an “Oh Sweet Jesus” exclamation from my lips. I don’t think I’ve ever been that scared in my whole life.He laughed so hard at me! I know reading this is going to give him a laugh still.
