Foggy Morning

Our time here has been relaxing and enjoyable. We've had rain here and after four months in the desert the freshly washed smell of the air is intoxicating. At the moment fog is rolling in dampening the sound of bird song and road traffic. The sun is trying to peek through, which is what we need since it is time for us to move on.

Denny and I have put the Albuquerque area on our list of places to consider when we
start to think about settling down. The people here are refreshingly friendly for a city this size and we think we could deal with the relatively small number of snows they get during their winter season in exchange for pleasant summers and attractive surroundings. We figure we want to live somewhere within an hour of a sizable airport, museums and shopping, which means we could position ourselves somewhere off the Turquoise Trail (Highway 14) and have Albuquerque to our south and Santa Fe to the north. Not a bad thing.

This afternoon we should be in Amarillo, tomorrow Oklahoma City and then onward to Springfield, Missouri. Posting here may be erratic for the next few days but I think we'll have free wi-fi in Springfield for some Lazy Sunday pictures.

Safe travels to all those on the move.
