Hey everyone — I have two friends visiting Santa Fe right now (not together) and the weekend got away from me — it’s been so much fun having someone to walk around and do tourist-y things with! I have friends I hang out with here, but I do most of my walking solo, so it’s been great to have companions who like long walks as much as I do. One friend and I spent much of this long weekend exploring Canyon Road and the nearby historic neighborhoods on foot, with these little winding streets and alleyways we didn’t even know existed — and we both lived here a couple of decades ago which is when we first met.
This morning the annual July 4 pancake breakfast returned to the Plaza, after a 2-year hiatus due to COVID. It was packed. We steered clear of the breakfast itself … I don’t even particularly like pancakes, I’m more a French toast gal. But we did walk around and look at the classic cars right there on display — here’s a photo, I thought the skeleton driving was hilarious, although I admit it doesn’t scream Independence Day.
I hope you’ve had a nice weekend and I’ll see you in a couple of weeks!
