Almost forgot what day it was
HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO EVERY ONE.
On the spur of the moment yesterday we decided to take a road trip. Back again to La Martina restaurant for breakfast and then on to a quick drive through La Noria. We usually get early starts - well about nine o'clock early so we can enjoy the coolest time of the day. And not interrupt afternoon nap time. Him, not me so much. Well sometimes...The driveway into La Martina. The bougainvillea have really grown since last year and they are bloom spectacularly. So many different colors.
Haven't seen this plant before.
And a new addition. Or else he has been quiet as I've never seen him before either.
The back portion of the side yard.
Leaving to get back on the road. Just liked all the colors here. A few more miles up the road and we came to La Noria's arch. The topes are new! It is funny the topes leading to the arch are real. The ones behind the arch are just painted stripes on the road. But they look real.
This sign wasn't here the one time we drove to La Noria last year. It is in front of the plaza where every Sunday they have a big fair.
Driving around town I think the church has been painted. We will return in the near future and stop and visit with friends and spend more time just wandering around.
The only stop we made in town. Bill Needed to have some of his favorite tortillas. He says they are the best he's ever eaten.
Back out through town. There seem to be more little stores than before.
Tico's potters wheel. Spins it by foot.
He took us out back to see the pottery he had fired the previous day in his kiln.
The kiln behind Tico.
Looking in to the top of the kiln. Most of these haven't been glazed.
Showing us the ash for day before's fire.
The neighbors burro. Very friendly
Showing us one of his new planters. He and his family have been well and doing fine the last year. Very happy to know that. We will visit with him again when we come back.
Then on home. A quick trip but a fun one. And so very glad to see life has somewhat returned to normal in La Noria.
