Ah.....Santa Fe....what can I possibly say that I haven't before? Except, this trip was close to perfect....
Santa Fe Clouds
Chris and I were fortunate to have the same beautiful house we had last year....away from the City, with the Sangre de Christo Mountains as our *backdrop..
|Our beautiful, magical Gazebo..where we often cooked and ate outside..|
When we didn't go out to eat, I was blessed to have a man who LOVES to cook....and is a truly great one! It was lovely to be spoiled .....the only thing I ever did was make coffee in the Morning!
We did have one Storm with Thunder and Lightning!
But, in half an hour, it had departed and the Sun returned!
Chris was busy preparing for Santa Fe Opera. He had five Operas to do Supertitles for...translating from French, Italian and (a first) Chinese!
Of course, we did go out for lunch, dinner and driving through the spectacular country side...
|Lunch at one of our favourite spots....Chimayo|
|Prickly Pear Cocktails....yummy!|
Some of the gorgeous scenery driving back from Chimayo....
Beautiful....BUT, I know you are waiting for some of my *Critter Photos!
Even a Hummingbird!
And....of course, Ravens!
A gigantic.....who knows what!
|Mr. Stinkbug strolls around...|
La Bella Luna
|The Moon rose particularly late - so this was the ONLY Moon Photo I took!|
And.....Operas! (You didn't think I would post about this, did you? A-ha-ha!)
The 2014 Season
|During the Day.....doesn't it resemble a Tanker Ship?|
|Final Dress Rehearsal for *Carmen*|
|Here's what Chris does for a living.....all his translations for every Opera appear on this screen. The Metropolitan Opera in New York has the same system.|
|Nothing is as gorgeous as the Santa Fe *Violet Hour* as the Operas begin...|
|A panoramic view of the Opera House as Opening Night begins!|
And here we are, all dressed up on Opening Night for *Carmen*!
Whew... a lot of photos....(and I took even more)! I hope you enjoyed visiting Santa Fe with me!
