Wandering around Durango was the perfect way to spend the next day. I have always loved this town and all the nooks and cranny shops you can find. We spent a week or so here on our Honeymoon and 1 year anniversary, so it holds many many good memories for me. I could live in this town for sure.
We shopped, ate some delicious pizza, and literally had a very chill day after all the traveling and hiking.
Getting off the main street there were all kinds of little eclectic shops. We wandered into a used book shop and got lost in it for hours.
I think this place has been here since the last time we were here in ’09 and maybe even when we were her in 1990. It is a couple blocks off the main street and there were books stacked everywhere. We lazily sifted through them and found 3 to buy, but for the most part just had fun being together. I absolutely love books. The smell, the feel of them in your hand. I had been reading most of my stuff via Kindle for a few years because my close up vision was failing, but after last years trip to Mexico I went back to good old paper books and never looked back. Honestly, this day and the book shop will be one of my best memories of this trip.
Of course, we also revisited the horses. Hell yes!
At their new sizes there was no way I would let them climb on the bronze horses. Not to mention we are missing their big brother. (sob) But the contrast is pretty crazy, no? My babies grew up!
