Our first stop in Denver was Coors Field for a baseball game. The game was between home team Colorado Rockies and the LA Dodgers. It was a gorgeous blue sky day that became quite hot in the afternoon - Ash and I were sitting at the front of the first tier in direct sun! However, I bought a cap as a memento which helped a lot. We stayed for about 4-5 innings and then headed back to the hotel. (The Rockies ended up winning 9-2 and won the series of three games).

We left the game early as we had plans for the evening - we had tickets to Taylor Swift's RED Tour! This concert was great - not only was Ed Sheeran the opening act, the very first opener was a new up and coming country singer songwriter who was amazing. Three great singers for the one price - fantastic night all round! And our seats were great as well - halfway up the first tier just to stage right.

|Ed was onstage for 40 minutes entertaining us |
with his guitar, looping machine and amazing vocals.

Our day of baseball and concerts meant the beginning of our big road trip - the following morning we flew from Denver to Orlando to start our East Coast travels. More on that to come!
