This is a ‘Catch Up’ post. Rewind to our 7 days in Albuquerque.
Midway through our week with brothers and wives, we scheduled an overnight trip to Santa Fe for some more memories and golf. Brad, Reid and I “grew up” in Santa Fe having spent our elementary, junior and senior high school years there.
That was where I found my life long passion with golf. Reid and I both worked at the Santa Fe Country Club growing up and it’s where the three of us played high school golf. Eldest brother Marty was already off to college and the Navy by then but he visited often and had not been back in a while. Pam and I had visited Santa Fe quite a few times during our full-timing years.
For now it was a short 60 mile overnight trip. First the guys drove up to make our 10 AM tee time at Santa Fe Country Club. I regained my composure from our Monday outing and smoked those boys. I had a good golf day.
I have since played 3 more times in our travels and have been suitably humbled once again. Golf is like that.We finished our 18 holes and hung around a bit on the porch where the girls joined us. They drove up after us and went to lunch before meeting us at the golf course. We stayed for a little while then went over to our AirBnB rental. It was only about a mile away from the golf course.
Cathedral of St Francis. It is such an interesting and important place in the region.
The operators were terrific. They told us more facts than we could absorb and answered everyones questions. It was about a 15 minute ride to the top and covered about 2.7 miles. The view was quite amazing. It you have trouble with heights, this is the wrong excursion for you.
After dinner (of some great hummus and pita bread) we descended the 10,300 ft Sandia Peak and the tram car went through the fog.
It was a fun couple of days and we were ready to get to Reid’s house and relax some. That pretty much sum’s up a couple of days in our Coast-to-Coast road trip. Thanks for joining us today. And thanks for all the comments! We love ‘em.
