Gorgeous Sunsets.... un-retouched colours...
The day I arrived, there was a huge wildfire burning quite close to us.... thankfully, the Firefighters were able to put it out in 2 days....
Some views of the house Chris has for the Summer while he works at Santa Fe Opera..
The lovely Gazebo where we sometimes stayed home and cooked....Chris is an excellent Chef!
Rainbow Trout, White Beans with Arugula and a wonderful Gewurztraminer..
Lots of Lizards.....I took a video of this little one busily digging a hole.....I'd never seen one do this before....don't you love how he stops, looks up at me - then decides to continue digging?
Here's one of Mr. GIGANTIC Beetle out for his Morning Stroll!
Downtown Santa Fe Scenes
Inside St. Francis Cathederal
Agnus Dei... (the Lamb of God).....those of you who know my last name get this...
Taken especially for Anne and Pam... you both NEED these boots!
I had many candles burnt for all of you.....
Besides many days of glorious 95 degree days - I had a few Thunderstorms! Lightning, Thunder..oh my..
And....of course, I followed La Bella Luna as she grew from a Silver Crescent to a half-full orb....
|Through one of the Skylights in the Living Room..|
And....I HAD to include a few photos from the Opera Rehearsals I attended...
|Susanna Phillips as Countess Almaviva in *The Marriage of Figaro*.|
|Moi....during a break in the *Figaro*rehearsal..|
|Famed Mezzo, Susan Graham (second from the left) with a stellar cast in *The Grand Duchess of Gerolstein*.|
The splendid, outdoors, Santa Fe Opera!
Chris and I took a drive up another 1,000 feet to see part of the Santa Fe Forest... (brought us to almost 9,000 feet)!
We had lunch at one of my favourite restaurants..the Coyote Cantina..
I hope I didn't overwhelm you with all of these photos... but I wanted to share one of the happiest times I have had in four years!
