Before we left Las Cruces, we swung by the town centre and took up the suggestions Diane and Rachel offered for book, quilt and knit shops. The COAS bookstore was a rich source of all kinds of titles - this is just part of the craft section.
And then, the first yarn store of the trip, Unravel, where a knit and natter was in full swing and great things were being created. How fortunate to have such inspiring places on the doorstep - a little cluster of creativity!
So, it was time to hit the road again and head north on the I25 again. We were amused by some place names
We dropped off our bags at the hotel and went straight into the city centre to get our bearings and find something to eat. Santa Fe is a relaxed kind of place and easy to potter around.
As for finding something to eat - we struck gold in the Coyote Cafe, where we enjoyed the most delicious dinner imaginable. Oh my goodness, the diet starts when we get home!
