What do you do when your frenemies (third cousins) come for a visit? This lot stopped in for a visit with Miss P and she was not best pleased.
So off we went with the dog parents for some fun at the Manitou Arcade, a tourist trap in the heart of Manitou Springs.
There is a similarity to tourist tat throughout the world, but having a trough to pan for gold is somewhat unique and different.
And it is a lovely setting, and it would have been perfect; if it was not cool and rainy instead of the expected warm and sunny. Also there were lots of actual tourists and they kept getting in the way, although Miss P did get plenty of love.
We did drop a certain number of quarters in the vintage pinball machines. But I only came in second in the skeeball sort of horse racing game, so I missed out on winning a tiny coffee cup 🙁 I think the winner was some sort of pro.
So we had lots of laughs and it provided a perfect photo op. Then it was off for some ice cream, even if it was cold.
