~Big Time in Santa Fe~

Pat and I had another big time in Santa Fe today...and the day isn't even over yet.  (More to come!)

First, I started off with a walk to Pat's place.  On the way, I spotted this guy...a sure sign that spring has sprung in Santa Fe!

How she passed me passing her on the road, we haven't a clue.  SCREEEECH!  U-y!

We then headed for brunch at Zia's.  Amazing food!  We each had a smoked salmon quesadilla.  Wisteria draped this trellis outside Zia's.

After we ate, we decided to walk to the Plaza for some people watching.

We decided to walk...and when we got to the plaza...we thought it was a bad decision.  It got cold and breezy, so we had to hitch a ride home.

I ran, "Hey, can you take us to our car? We parked too far away."  He said, "Sure, I need the exercise!"   SMACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Once we were at the car, we ever so NOT delicately dismounted the carriage.

Off we go to a cemetery that Pat has been fascinated by for years.  "Let's go," I say.  We get there...and once we get there, we see that we cannot get into the Lady of Guadalupe Cemetery.  Hmph....  We see an open-door salon, so we cross the street.  The hair designer, clearly a native, told us that those are paupers' graves.  Only names and approximate ages....indigents.  Now, we know.

One last adventure before we rest for the evening's shenanigans.  Pat drives to Canyon Road to visit the Bronze Sculpture Park.  

Tonight, we are going to the famous "locals'" place, Maria's, for New Mexican fare.

And for the the finale this evening, we are crashing the "2012 CLOSET BALL," a drag queen party being held here at The Lodge, just doors down from my room.

Should be so much PHUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(I'll get pics.......)
