No photos with this entry, other than one of the dancers at Indian Market. The festival was great, we were there most of the day on Sunday. Always fun to talk to the artists about their incredible work. This is wind down week. We have had visitors for most of the month and loved seeing folks and squiring them around. Brenda and David left Monday and some of our family is here and we had dinner with them on Monday. We are in the process of hitting a few galleries and sites we missed this summer. Also playing golf one last time at each of our favorite courses. A fairwell dinner with Jim Duncan and his dad and our friends the Campbells will round out the week. Amazingly, we did not make it to Taos this year and only went to museum hill once, for the International Folk Fest.
We have booked our little condo for 2014. We do love it out here and still have some things we would like to see and do. And, in answer to those who have asked, we have talked about relocating. However, we quickly realize by splitting our time, we have the best of both worlds, along with the best weather. We have done a good job of hitting the surrounding states but will do some day trips within NM next year. Looking forward to getting home and catching up with everyone in SC. Where rain is measured here in fractions, returning to what we understand has been a deluge this summer may require some adjusting.
I know I have said this before but we are really fortunate to have done all of this. During both of our road trips with the Waldrons, we have commented at almost every site we have been to about the number of Europeans who are here, even in pretty remote places. In fact, at times, they have outnumbered the Americans, expecially the French. I wonder if we are all going over there while they are coming here. We have not seen everything but have seen a lot and this remains one of the most remarkable places we have ever been to. If you haven't done it, I hope you do.
We will be back late on the 28th. Signing off... Love to all, Marty and Julie
