The Land of Enchantment

Today we left family and friends in Colorado Springs and headed south. As we crossed the mountains through Raton Pass into New Mexico we put Carlos Nakai on the ipod and were carried into New Mexico on his melodies. After a couple of stops along the way for lunch, gas, etc. we arrived in:

The first order of business was dinner. We found a great place near our condo and had a great meal. Jean especially enjoyed her beer brewed in Roswell, New Mexico.

Then we walked up to the cathedral and town plaza, checked out the opening times for museums for tomorrow before returning to the confines of our little adobe where I completed my daily ukulele practice!

We found a shop that JP would love and will check it out on his behalf.

Tomorrow we hit the galleries and museums!



About Paul

I'm retired, but working at painting, photography, and song writing. We like to travel and paint plein air in new places. Of course that's also where photography comes into the picture, so to speak. Sometimes I get inspired to write songs about the people and places we visit.

    Sounds wonderful; and thanks for including Carlos Nakai, as I’ve never heard of him. I now own one of his songs that I’m now listening to. Hauntingly beautiful music. 🙂

  3. Not to mention the many, many galleries… and Taos and Abiqui just up the road. What a nice trip!
    Love, ace & marco

    Oh dear, oh dear, you seem to be in great shape and great mood every day, but I have the impression that you have outdone yourself today. The photo of Jean in front of her glass of beer is spectacular. How wonderful!
    Keep at it! JP
