Tuesday: Went to Taos ans Santa Fe. We took a brief tour of the center of town. We have been there before, last time we visited Johnny and Ellen we toured Taos Earthships the Ultimate in Green housing and had lunch over the Rio Grande Gorge with food we had gotten from the local Health food Green Grocer it was fabulous.
So it was off to Santa Fe. We stopped (of course) at The Buffalo Thunder Casino and had lunch.
We Gambled a little, Some of us won, some of us didn’t play you guess who did what.
We were in Santa Fe NM and of course we were deciding what to do. So we did what most people do, shop for souvenirs. I had recently found out that Johnny didn’t have any Apple products we had been discussing them since we had been quietly and subtly showing off ours to him, and showing him the outright wisdom of owning such a all empowering device. HE WAS SOLD. Yes we had converted another PC owner to The Apple World.
So it was off to Best Buy for the sale. Our work was done. We then headed back to Raton, for an evening of Apple Glory.
We were off to Trinidad Co just o few miles north of Raton
We got to see Susan’s House (Ellen’s Daughter)
We had a nice visit then it was back to Raton for a Great Dinner. Linda was the Chef that Night it was a trade off. We Get Dinner at Rinos Reastaurant the best food in Trinidad, Co (We are headed there tonight) http://www.rinostrinidad.com/
Linda Made her Famous Arroz Con Pollo with (sweet peas picked from the garden), with Salad Fresh from the garden and warm Italian bread. Johnny picked salad greens from his Garden. If you don’t know Johnny’s garden happens to be the best garden this side of Heaven. He has rows of Carrots , Squash, Cucumbers, Sweet Peas, Watermelon, corn, Onions, Potatoes, Italian Green Beans and many others to, many to mention. He had sent a soil sample to the University of Nebraska for analysis, they said it wasn’t possible to grow anything worth eating. We strongly disagree. (see Photos)
It was another terrific night, Linda’s dinner was accompanied by Van Morrison “Avalon Nights” one of my favorite Van Morrison Albums. (Yes I do believe a have another couple of satisfied converts to the heavenly sounds of one of the most astounding Musicians to have ever graced our ears.)
So tomorrow we are off to Florence Bed and Breakfast and the Royal Gorge Dinner Train Ride.
