Greetings from the Bandelier National Monument! After the workshop in Scottsdale, I drove my rental Nissan Rogue to Santa Fe, another Art Mecca. The historic city has over 100 galleries. Absolute bliss! Fortunately for me, my friend Andrea, her husband Jack, and daughers, Estee, Ellie and Eramis were going to be there at the same time. Andrea found us houses — actual houses! — called Casitas to stay in. They were located on a quiet street just two blocks from the Historic Plaza, where the Palace of the Governors was built in 1640! (I’m a history buff, but I had no idea.)
Jack and Andrea’s Casita….Very nice.
The Patio behind my Casita. It was in the 50s in Santa Fe. This would have a great place to have dinner and a bottle of wine if the temperature had been about 20 degrees warmer. As it was, it was about 40 degrees warmer than Wisconsin.
