It’s been almost two months since my friend and her sister were here visiting. They came right before all the restrictions, and wow, it seems much longer than that. A lifetime ago. We had a fabulous time exploring the Santa Fe Trail, Bent’s Fort,
I haven’t been on any adventures since then except in books, but today I received a wonderful surprise from my friend, and now I have my own book of adventures to look at when I get tired of the adventures in the Wheel of Time juggernaut.
This friend makes books of all her adventures, so it was a real thrill to get a book of my own highlighting our adventures.
Most of the photos we took were similar, but she took pictures that I didn’t. I knew what the downtown looked liked here, so I didn’t bother with images of the slummy area, but she made the place look quaint and interesting.
We also went on a bit of walking tour in one town and found some interesting stories beyond the Santa Fe Trail mystique.
Her book ended with . . . what else but me and my hat!
I hope she doesn’t mind my sharing parts of her book, but I thought all of us — not just me — needed something fun to think about for a change.
And yes, my friend. Thanks for the memories.
