We got a late start today…left the rental at 9:45am…had breakfast in Santa Fe at the Zia Diner…nice place…good food! We parked in the free public parking lot situated about 4 blocks away from the “plaza”. The native Indians sell their jewelry/pottery under the portal of the Palace of the Governors Museum. Since I’ve adopted the mind-set of “Collect Experiences…Not Things”, I was a good girl and only bought a shirt and some essential oil lotion on the trip!
This is the oldest house in Santa Fe…we took about 5 minutes and walked through it.
I went into this Cathedral…
There are some outdoor statutes and galleries around the plaza area…
This is the work of Bill Worrell…
a local artist that my traveling companion, Kathy, is friends with. They are his signature “Shamans”!
We were invited to John Farnsworth’s house/studio. We met online through my blog, which I think is pretty cool! He’s also a local artist, who has a great spirit and personality! His home was located only about 5 minutes from where we were staying.
That evening we went dancing at La Fonda…I wasn’t feeling great…probably the drinks in Durango the night before…and the altitude!
Hi, you suggested I check out your blog and I did. I was glad to see your series of blogs about your trip through Colorado and New Mexico as I will be taking a trip there later this month. We’ll be driving down from Washington, going first through Dinosaur NM, then down to the Silverton area, over to Taos, then spending 3 days in Sante Fe, and back up through northwestern New Mexico and eastern Utah. It’s great seeing some of the places I’ll be going on your blog. Thanks for sharing.
Hi Joe –
If you haven’t been to those areas…they are beautiful! Hope your trip is great and can’t wait to see photos!
I bought some great earrings at that very spot a few years ago. Nice to know some things don’t change.
Oh great!! I was there last fall.. isn’t it awesome. though i was not as strong as you about only collecting experiences. No harm done though. Loved it there.. so europe! c
Nice photos !
