I woke up with a load more hives - they have now spread to my legs and lower back. I went to the Pharmacy for a diagnosis,but they had no idea and suggested I try Benadryl for the itching.
The Benadryl is helping with the itching but its not helping with staying awake. I felt exhausted an hour after taking two tablets!
We went wine tasting at luchtime - (to a vineyard in Palisade, called Grand River Vineyards).We tried 8 wines (for $3.50) and it was well worth it. The info they gave us was great and the wines were really good.
I got tipsy and accidentally spent $70 on wine and Port.
We then went to sit by the river for lunch and then walked the River Park Trail (a 3 mile walk around the Colorado River).
We then headed for Main Street (which I had been told was nice to walk around). It reminds me of Boulder - there are art exhibits on the road and it is quite hippy. We had a couple of drinks in the local microbrewery (yes, the tippsiness returned) and at at a restaurant recommended in our Lonely Planet Book - Il Bistro Italiano. It was okay, but not worth the hype.
