Where are we today ?
Hidden Valley Rv Park Tijeras New MexicoPretty cold last night, the forecast said going down to 28f but when I got up at 5 am the water hose was frozen and was 18f. hmm, no problem we had some water in our tank as always. Just never know when things like this will happen or the water in a park is shut down. I disconnected the water hose and set in the sun an hour or so later all thawed out. The water taps are heated so that was no problem. And when I opened our front window curtains noticed this guy across from camping in a tent! And he was not a young fellow either! Hmm, not for us thats for sure, mind you there was a time when I did that kinda stuff, long time ago.
Today a nice tour to Old town Albuquerque.
|nope not for us anymore|
|so cold the green leaves were falling off the |
trees this morning
The buildings and area is nice and a wonderful day for fresh air and walkabouts. Mostly a tourist trap with stores selling overpriced souvenirs, jewelry and art galleries. Lots and restaurants too. We check out a few shops but nothing much we needed or wanted.
Was a fun walkabout, memories of Mexico, kinda.. Not the prices thou.
|San Felipe di Neri Church 1706|
|this guy has been waiting a long time|
|Nice courtyard with a gas fireplace sitting area|
The other shop that interested was Old Town Olive. Now that was fun. We sampled many different Olive oils and final broke down and purchased one that we both loved, Tuscan Infused Olive oil (A delicious blend of herbs, sun-dried tomatoes and garlic infused olive oil. Ise it on everything from salad dressings to marinades. Sprinkle with grated Parmogiano Reggiano cheese and a few twists of freshly ground pepper for an irresistible bread dipper). It was a bit pricey but we had packed a lunch today so that we could splurge a bit on this very tasty-healthy treat.
|so many choices, could have spent a fortune here, but...|
|this one is amazing|
|Sandia Peak Albuquerque,|
we took the tram many years ago
|turned off 1-40 to take route 66 back to camp|
|love the clear blue skies|
Then disconnect our water line tonight, just in case and a nice sunset we missed over the peak behind us.
What a fun day we had, fresh air, new scenery and sunshine, does not get much better, well warmer would be nice but that will come with time.
Hope you enjoyed you day too and glad that your dropped by.
