Today was a day of rest and relaxation for most of us. The weather was beautiful again and the day was perfect for going into town to see the sights we have not had time for.
The day began with the men’s breakfast. In the photos below you will see Glen Ronken, Gene Barron, Stan and Barbara Jones, and Jim Law. They were up early and fixed a memorable Mexican breakfast for us. Each cooked, prepared and then cleaned up after the feast. Our grateful thanks for a wonderful beginning of the day!
Some stayed and relaxed in their coaches preparing for the journey tomorrow and some traveled. Some of the sights seen were Los Almos, Museum Hill, the market, and some of the galleries in Santa Fe.
This evening we all met for a presentation by Shelly on Pueblo etiquette and review of the schedule for the next few days. We will be leaving tomorrow in waves beginning at 9:00 for the two hour trip to Taos. After Shelly’s presentation, Peter and Anita Pierce again sponsored a craft evening for us. After seeing the wonderful baskets that came home last night, more men joined us for this craft…soap rock sculpting. In the pictures below, you will see the progress made by Dick and Gail Vazzano, Ken and Laverne Abbott, Norma Preston, Gene Barron and Bill and JeanAnn Miller! This was a fun craft! Thank you to the Pierce’s for coming up with such creative native arts.
One last note today…tomorrow is Don Prestons 71st birthday! He seems in shock that we knew! Happy Birthday Don!
