What's in a name?





This morning we awoke in Santa Fe, New Mexico. We went to breakfast at a restaurant Robin saw on the Food Network, Tia Sophias. It was great. We had breakfast burritos and the total bill was close to $30.00. Tonight we are in Grants, New Mexico (think Grant near Newaygo back home). We had burritos at a restaurant on Santa Fe Blvd. The cost for dinner was less than $20.00. So, "in" Sante Fe the breakfast cost almost double what dinner did "on" Sante Fe. So, what is exactly in a name? All in all we had another great day. We stopped at the Harley shop in Sante Fe (why not?) and meet a couple who were traveling from Connecticut. They said they have been traveling in constant rain. We realized how fortunate and good God has been to us. Again today we weaved through the mountains and also through rain storms and each side. It was a great ride. But, we should be careful about saying mountains. We are at the Southern foot hills of the Rockys, but the mountains look like someone chopped the tops off ... think mountains with military crew cuts. We have gone almost 1800 miles and David was able to complete another chapter in the manuscript today. We miss everyone, however. The pictures for today are our Inn in Santa Fe, Tia Sophias (the boy in front is not someone Robin was stalking), houses on the side of a hill in NM and Robin on the bike in front of the vending machines at a rest area (yes, you could buy something from them if you dare). Tomorrow is a long ride to Flagstaff, AZ.

Hi David and Robin! Its fun being able to follow your adventures via the internet. I am in Toronto CA and heading to Boston and Nantucket Island today. Love Santa Fe area - if you have time which I am guessing you DONT, Santa Fe has a great collection of art second to NYC! God is blessing you both - that is awesome! Miss you guys! Heather and I really appreciate your friendship and look forward to future get togethers and on-going counseling. Her kids are having a rough start with the move into the new house - we will talk later! Love you guys! Ryan and Heather
