I've always wanted to visit Santa Fe. There is SO MUCH history there.
We visited San Miguel Chapel, the oldest church in the Continental United States.
The interior is of course similar to that of the California missions.
Another historic building is The Palace of The Governors. As you might expect with The Professor as a companion, we spent a few hours there. The Palace of The Governors was first public building erected and occupied by the Spanish in 1610 as the northernmost outpost of the Spanish Empire in The New World.
Santa Fe is not simply an historical destination. It is also a spinner and weaver's (and knitter's) paradise. Even the walls along the downtown stream advertise spinning and weaving.
There are (at least) two weaving shops/studios in the downtown area.
On the edge of the plaza is Handwoven Originals, a small shop where handwoven items are created on location.
The lovely lady at Handwoven Originals directed us to Miriam's Well (Santa Fe School of Weaving) which is owned by Miriam Leth-Espensen.
After wandering through Santa Fe museums, plazas and streets for hours, we decided we needed some coffee. So we googled 'coffee' and, huh. Up popped Coffee and YARN! We couldn't resist.
Yarn and Coffee--the perfect combination. In the same place. He drank his coffee and read a book. I sipped mine and knitted a pink hat.
There was SO MUCH MORE we saw in Santa Fe. Architecture. Art. More later...
