What a wonderful day in Santa Fe! Started with Mass at the Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi (click link for a 360-degree tour of the Basilica), followed by a little shopping (Mike bought a custom-made belt and a cool hat; I scored a beautiful diamond-patterned leather jacket), then brunch at Anasazi Restaurant.
After walking through the Georgia O’Keefe Museum and browsing a few art galleries, we bought Mike a new wedding ring at Bella. The manager there is going to repair his original ring, which had an onyx inlay that has cracked and fallen out twice since we bought it in St. John USVI 15 years ago. We also visited a beautiful jewelry store, Fairchild & Co, which had beautiful and very unique pieces in it.
There are darling pop-up art galleries all over the city. We were both drawn to a gorgeous water jug made by Andrew Sanders, but we decided that we need to be sure of the placement in our Camano Island house before we purchase it.
We went back to the Basilica to take some pictures inside, but a ceremony was about to start, so we schlepped back to the hotel to actually RELAX for a change! Ahhh, vacation!!
