We had a “staycation” last week. We went camping high in the mountains near Santa Fe. Camping up there was cooold, and we could have prepared better…but you don’t actually expect to sleep when camping. We also toured a bit around Santa Fe. There was a small labyrinth outside a cathedral there. Of course, we had to stop by our favorite restaurant in Santa Fe, Tomasitas. We noticed there was a new African style place called Jambo Cafe, but we neglected to try it…maybe next time. We dropped by the Chuck Jones gallery. Was he in New Mexico at some point? Vanessa got to visit the Georgia O’Keefe museum that she’d wanted to see for a while. On the way home from Santa Fe, we stopped by Tent Rock and Cochiti Lake.
We went to Cliff’s one day and had fun. It’s a small amusement park here in Albuquerque. It was fun aside from Sean having an “nausea incident” on the way home as a result of riding a looping ride 3 times before he left. Loading up on greek food at the new Ahmo’s Deli probably didn’t help.
Later in the week, we went to my cousin’s wedding in Clovis and had a good time seeing cousins I hadn’t seen in quite a while. We also played Love Letters. It’s a cool little rule-based card game with only 16 cards. Very simple to learn.
