Madrid, Mah-drid

Tuesday morning I headed out once again to the scenic byway Turquoise Route. My first stop was at Henderson Store, the only recommended shop in Golden, New Mexico according to my Turquoise tourist map from the hotel. Pulling open the wooden screen door, I walked into a store filled with jewelry, pottery and other gifts. […]

The Hunt for Turquoise

I woke up on Monday with a mission– tired the dogs out and find some awesome turquoise jewelry. We drove to the Petroglyph National Monument early in the morning so it wouldn’t be as hot. I went to the entrance of one section of the park where, according to their website, a large number of […]

I stopped in at the Pueblo Harvest Cafe, a restaurant attached directly to the museum. Sundays offered a brunch menu until 4pm, with a variety of standard […]

Another day, another time zone

It took us two days to get from Corpus Christi to Albuquerque. 7 hours one day, 7 hours the next. After a late start on Friday, we arrived in Fort Stockton, Texas at 1 AM. The choice of hotels in Northwest Texas was slim, but my $80 hotel turned out to be an outside entrance […]

We arrive at my sister’s apartment late Tuesday night after an epic 10 hour drive of Subway, smoothies and roadside stops for the doggies. My sister had several things planned for all of us to do while we were visiting. One of the things Corpus Christi is known for are it’s beaches, often as a […]

Alligators and Beignets

We got up early Tuesday morning with a packed day ahead of us–the doggies were coming downtown with me! Our first stop was the beautiful dog park in the New Orleans city park. At least it looked beautiful from outside of the gate, as I was informed that the dog park was always closed on […]

A Tourist in the 9th Ward

Monday morning I woke up ready to embrace my role as a tourist in New Orleans. I took the dogs for a quick walk through the neighborhood behind my hotel. We may have run into a homeless man with needle marks in his arm, but he just smiled hello and walked past us. I’d narrowed […]

A Berry good day

My goal for Sunday was to get to Louisiana as quickly as possible so that we would have time to settle into our hotel and rest up for some New Orleans explorin’. I relaxed with the doggies and packed up the car. We left at 10:55, 5 minutes remaining on our La Quinta hotel. What […]
