Yeah, I’m Goofing Off

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!

    I like pancakes. When I make them. With real maple syrup and butter an enough coffee to make sure I don’t pass out from sugar rush after ten minutes.

    Sounds like you had a grand time!

    Enjoy yourself. Visitors are a wonderful thing after our horrid couple of years.

      Thanks, hon! I do love a good explore, or a visit to an art gallery, with a friend, since I do so much of that solo!

    Glad you had a good weekend with friends and stayed safe. It started out good…then Highland Park happened(10 miles from my family home) . I. Can’t. Even.
    So I’mo go eat some almonds and wait for my nails to dry.
