After a long afternoon of driving, we arrived in Santa Fe. We chose to stay in a bed and breakfast close to the Plaza. And I am so glad we did. We enjoyed afternoon wine and cheese and had the opportunity to meet some lovely people, guests who were also staying at the Hacienda Nicholas. On our second evening, we celebrated with a couple who got married in the courtyard. What a trip!!! We missed the nuptials but were happy to take part in the “reception” sans camera. These two were such interesting people; having had many careers over the course of their lives, they are currently building their sustainable, organic farm in central Oregon. Fascinating.
We also enjoyed wandering around the town and taking in some Mexican food at Mucho Gusto. I am enchanted by the adobe architecture of which the city is constructed. The warm orange tones and the smooth lines combined with wood beams and textures make for quite a combination. Add to that shadows from the beams or nearby trees which create entrancing images on the walls….
