“It beats driving by a mile” when you board a Frex bus in Colorado Springs and travel to downtown Denver. While the friendly driver expertly drives the smoke-free bus, I enjoy knitting and sipping a hot drink in my leak-proof Contigo Stainless Steel Insulated Tumbler. I slip a cup sleeve on it to hold in the heat even longer during my 90-minute bus trip.
Settle into a Frex seat and relax! If you have luggage, you can put it on racks above your seat.
Frex buses take the hassle out of driving even on cold snowy days. One of the passengers attached his bicycle to the front of the bus. It rides for free!
We passed though Greenland, CO nestled in the mountains. If you blink, you’ll miss it!
There are several designated stops in downtown Denver. If you want to get off the Frex at a different block along the regular route, tell the driver. I find the drivers very helpful!
Before filling my 24 ounce Contigo Autoseal Hydration Bottle, I slip a cup wrap onto the bottom. Next, I turn a second cup wrap upside down and slip it over the top. The bottle’s wide mouth is easy to fill with ice cubes and water. It’s dishwasher safe, made of BPA free plastic, and meets all FDA standards.
The water bottle is made of Tritan™ so it’s high-impact resistant, won’t stain, and doesn’t retain odors. My iced water tastes great from the first drink to the last!
The unique lid on the Contigo Autoseal is 100% spill proof. With one hand, I press the button on the lid to drink. Push the carabiner open to clip the water bottle to a backpack, tote bag, or belt loop. It’s available in several colors. Mine is lime green!
Slip a washable Kup Kollar onto your double walled San plastic tumbler while waiting for the water to boil. Fill the tea infusion basket with loose tea or tea bags. The basket fits on the inside rim of the tumbler for brewing.
After brewing your tea, remove the infusion basket and put it in a small plastic bowl to cool.
After the infusion basket cools, empty the tea leaves or remove bags, then rinse the basket under the RV sink faucet.
Screw on the lid with slider for drinking, take the 16 ounce tumbler to the front of your RV, place in cup holder, and enjoy freshly brewed tea and the scenery!
One afternoon Perry and I walked to The Cup & Crumpet in Woodstock, VA for lunch and tea. We ordered a Pot for Two of their house blend loose tea. It was delicious and well brewed with no bitter taste. The tea was served with the proper equipment – tea strainer with holder, cream pitcher, and sugar bowl. The Asian floral Kup Kap was my tea equipment!
We ordered a hot bowl of tasty tomato bisque soup with chunks of tomatoes and onions floating in it. I felt adventurous and ate the sardine quiche. It was a nice blend of flavors and very moist with a flaky crust. Soups and quiche are made from scratch on site with the owners’ grown vegetables or bought organic vegetables.
Our tea was still hot when we ate our desserts because it was served in a teapot covered by a tea cozy. This was a real treat because tea cozies are rarely used in tea shops or restaurants. The desserts change daily and are baked on site. I enjoyed a piece of Hummingbird Cake, a popular southern cake which may have originated from Jamaica. It’s a frosted banana cake filled with pineapple chunks and layered with cream cheese filling. Perry loved the traditional Bread pudding with rum sauce, one of his favorite desserts!
I experienced a second dessert when I walked into the next set of rooms and found a yarn shop called Fibersmyth. There is always room in the suitcase to take home new yarns!
This beautiful Steampunk Sally mug displays an original Art Nouveau illustration by Chaz Kemp. Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction and speculative fiction–often featuring elements of fantasy, which became popular about 20 years ago. Literary and artistic works are set in a world where steam power is widely used either in Victorian England or around the 19th century.
If you or someone you know is into Steampunk, Art Nouveau, fantasy, engineering, science fiction or just like the beautiful art, I recommend this quality 11 ounce mug. The art work reproduction is excellent. Put a Golden Notes Kup Kap on Steampunk Sally because music expands all centuries.
Chaz didn’t use Steampunk to design the Herb T. Awanna and Louie Latté graphics on my web site. Instead, he listened to what I wanted then put his artistic talent to work creating these fun characters from a photo I shot of two mugs and Kup Kaps!
