    Last minute packing this am in Santa Fe, for first time in our six years here flying out of Albuquerque.     Neighbor taking us to Santa Fe NM Railrunner Station, online tickets purchased to Albuquerque Downtown Station where we hope to catch the free Shuttle to the Albuquerque Sunport.  Got some SW Air tickets on sale and looking forward visiting Jakkalbessie's relatives and then off to Big Sur, Monterey, SFBay Area, Mendocino camping kayaking bike riding hiking and carousing.  

    We have no printer so hope the used ebay smartphone is smart enough to get us through!  :)

    Have a great day, all!

      I'm so excited for you and jakkalbessie, divine.  Have a ton of fun.  It sounds like the travel alone is going to be an adventure.  I love the train photos and am really looking forward to the shots from N Cali. I've been to downtown SF, but not to any of the areas that you are visiting.  I'd love to take the kids on a trip driving the coast all the way up through Oregon, maybe further and I'd like to fit in some national parks somehow.  We planned to do that before I got sick.  Who knows? Maybe there will be another opportunity, but the kids will no longer be "kids" when it happens, if it does.

      •  Thanks joanneleon, and really do hope (5+ / 0-)

        the road trip materializes for you and yours.  Some of the most spectacular scenery in the world along the West coast.  Your kids would probably   like it even more at their age now.

        We have been to the area many times, and for the last four years  we taught HS in Austin we had the honor of  participated with students in the amazing

         

        Critical Issues Forum

         A Global High School Conference on International Peace and Security  

        Where high school teachers and students from around the globe tackle the most challenging and pressing issues in international peace and security, nonproliferation, and disarmament.
        in Monterey.

        Sometimes our travel plans get put on hold so that the body and mind can heal and be ready.  We understand this very well, especially after the last year and a half.

        However we continue to  put forth our dreams and desires along with the affirmation that our travels will be 'for our highest good and the highest good of all concerned."  We like to think if a plan does not work out it was for a good reason.  May not be true, but helps keep us fairly sane and happy !  :)
