This was our last full day in Taos. It’s always hard to leave this place. Knowing there are return trips – maybe even sooner than January 2024, makes it a bit easier.
Today began as all days here do. A fire, coffee, light breakfast. It is Sunday. No “formal” church was planned. We trusted we would find worship in some fashion.
Once again, the first stop was Coffee Apothecary.
While we enjoyed our artful cuppas, we made our next plan. We decided to drive south to the village, Ranchos de Taos. San Francisco de Asís Church, built in the 18th century, has long been sought out by artists, including Georgia O’Keeffe.
We entered and prayed Noonday Prayers from the book, Prayers for all Seasons. It was a lovely place to sit and pray.
The bonus was stopping next door for lunch at The Plaza Grill, long a favorite.
I had read about the art exhibit, ‘Botanicals’ at Wright Contemporary. It was our next stop and while it was a small exhibit, it was interesting and enjoyable.
Our last activity was to walk down the road from the casa to visit the llamas. We visit every year, and have named them. Hilary, Stacey, Kamala and Dawn. Dawn arrived sometime in the last year.
We will depart early tomorrow morning to drive to Albuquerque for our flights home. A last fire..,
…until we return. Traveling mercies.
