Where are we today?
Santa Fe, NM
Our trip into Santa Fe was most enjoyable. We wandered around the town centre looking at all the lovely adobe buildings, wandering the streets around the central plaza. We saw the Palace of the Governors, the Basilica of St Francis, Georgia O'Keefe Gallery and then had a lovely lunch at Cafe Pasqual's. I had a Breakfast Quesadilla and Michael had the Smoked Trout Hash. Very nice.
After lunch we jumped back in the car and headed north on I 25 to Pecos National Historical Park. This is a place where there are ruins of an old Indian adobe pueblo and ruins of an old Catholic Church.
Here are an assortment of our pictures from today. (Can you believe that we both forgot to take a photo of the Palace of the Governors).
Firstly Santa Fe - I just love the architecture.
