Our lives now include living at one of the nicest senior communities in the USA. Rossmoor in Walnut Creek, CA. We will still travel in the RV but not full time.

Yeah!  We have decided to stay here in Santa Fe’ at the Trailer Ranch RV Resort at 341 Cerrillos Road, 87507.  We plan to stay through October, enjoying the fall as the colors change.  We like the location and the people.  It is our first “over 55” camping spot and it is on a busy road with every possible business.  I have discovered “Sunflower” a grocery chain that I learned about in Colorado.  We love Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s, but Sunflower is less expensive than Whole Foods and right around the corner!

Yesterday, I left without cameras.  We thot we were visiting Santa Clara Pueblo (reservation) to see some cliff dwellings.  It seems, however, that the recent fires caused the Pueblo to close the tourist roads-they learned in previous fires that tourists trample new growth, and in the desert you must give it a chance to come back.

As I am fortunate in meeting my angels along the way, I visited with the only couple in the store and resturant ,and they are from Los Alamos-both worked there.  They encouraged us to visit and so we went to the Science Museum.  Everything about the town and the museum and the government and the land affected my mind and body.  First, the set up is on high plateau land that fans out in fingers of land with canyons dividing it.  So to get from one neighborhood, or laboratory, you have to drive up and cross a bridge.  All buildings appear to be government buildings-not surprising once you think about it.  All big businesses are connected to DOD.  The views are spectacular.  The original Boys Ranch that Oppenheimer knew from visiting up there and that became housing for the original scientists, etc. is still there.  Movies in the museum are real views of what and who were there as they worked on splitting the atom and building the bombs.  The two bombs dropped on Japan were mocked up in real sized models, and you could touch them-as well as the “gadget” that exploded them.  I could go on and on.  Very surreal for me.

At any rate, it was quite an afternoon.

Pictures follow but not of Los Alamos.

Theme for our life these days

What a tree, near Georgia O'Keefe museum in Santa Fe'

Taos Plaza Beautiful young dog wanting to play with my girls-right!

Bridge over Gorge of Rio Grande? Makes me think of Twin Falls, but deeper. Guess people use this for suicides all the time. Strange

When we left Taos we saw an area of "extreme houses" that we still have not learned about. Will go back! this is one of many.

Love this picture of Russ and the girls in old town of Santa Fe'. We often take walks and people watch.Russ relaxes and I find great art everywhere. Dolfins in the sand.
