Santa Fe New Mexico

We went to Santa Fe NM next and headed to the Santa Fe Plaza. It is the central part of down town. I finely got to use my scooter, it took me a little bit of time and effort to retrieve it from the trunk of the car and put it together. I finally got to go with Charlotte instead of just sitting in the car.

I know that I looked grouchy in the picture. 1. I did not know Charlotte was taking the picture and 2. I was cold, granted I was in the sun but there was a breeze and I had to keep moving. If I had known that it was going to be like this I would have put on long britches and maybe a jacket. I tried to keep out of the way of people taking pictures but for some reason they kept getting around me to take pictures of the building I was next to.

We went around down town looking at the buildings and shops. Loretto Chapel built in 1873 is a beautiful church. It has a spiral staircase that was built without any nails, in fact they are not sure what even holds it together let alone keeps it up. In the close up picture you can see the wooden pegs holding the uprights that hold the rail.

  1. I’m envious. Santa Fe is lovely. Last month I was in Albuquerque on business, but did not get a chance to visit to Santa Fe. Albuquerque has a plaza also, but not anywhere as nice as Santa Fe’s.

    • The Old Town Plaza has a special place in our hearts because we lived in Albuquerque when we were first married. But you are right Santa Fe Plaza is very nice. Have a blessed week.
