I find that no matter how wonderful the vacation, it's always great to come back home. And I'm glad that's the way it is - happy at home and happy on the road.
Here's one more post with pics from our travels and then I hope I'll have more art to show you soon!! I plan to get painting again this weekend... I've got a commission to finish and have some ideas for new pieces!
The picture above is me writing my previous blog post at our favorite breakfast place. Daniel is having his morning coffee under a huge cottonwood tree.
The beautiful Rio Grande, where we used to walk our dogs when we still lived there.
Can you see the road runner (a big bird) so perfectly camouflaged in the photo below?
The dear friends we got to stay with. Peg and I worked together for seven years and they are like family to us.
Some of the lovely women I met through my work in Albuquerque.
More dear friends... Peter is a very talented illustrator.
We went for a little walk near the Sandia Mountains with a view over all of Albuquerque.
Later we spent some time in the fun Nob Hill area near the university. It's filled with little restaurants and boutiques.
From there, we stopped in Old Town and enjoyed the chile ristras so typical for the area.
Among all the little stores, we found a little chapel, which we'd never seen before.
The beautiful old San Felipe de Neri church, built in 1793.
And with this I thank you for coming with us on this journey back to a place and people we love.
Now I am off to finally visit some of your blogs again!! I've missed you all!!!
