We arose to clear blue skies this morning. The roses around our condo were laughing in joy.

Soon we checked out of the condo, left our car there and walked into old Santa Fe to visit the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum.

After a great visit and a quick lunch at a food cart in the square we picked up our car and drove to Whole Foods. Grocery shopping was high on the agenda because there are few stores out where our house is. After stocking up we drove one hour north to Abiquiu. Then we turned onto a state road and soon onto a dirt/gravel road that led to our temporary home sitting alone on a mesa top overlooking Abiquiu Lake. It took us an hour or two to get settled. Here are a couple of shots of this beautiful house.

After a quick dinner it is time to settle back and relax.


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.

    What a splendid looking place! And a hot tub for soaking and looking at the starry desert sky not too shabby

    Well, if one must relax, this seems to be a perfectly nice place to do so. Some people obviously know how to enjoy life. Do not relax too much though, we are demanding some art work. Aha!
    Love to you both.
