Santa Fe, New Mexico

The oldest house in America
A leisurely one hour drive brought us to the lovely city of Santa Fe. There are a lot of adobe style buildings and trees and gardens! They had a light sprinkling of snow a few days before we got here and it has rained every night, but the days are clear and a bit chilly. 

We stayed at the Trailer Ranch RV Resort where they have nice large, clean sites, with trees!

We took the bus into the city so that we didn’t have to worry about parking, walked around the shops, saw a museum and a few churches including the one with the famous spiral staircase. 

The Upper Crust pizza restaurant had been recommended to us and when we saw it near the oldest house in America we decided to have one for lunch. It would have to be the best pizza we have both ever eaten. The crust is left to rise three times over a couple of days so that it is like Italian Ciabatta bread, so it’s firm on the bottom, but soft and sponge like above the base. 

It’s Easter here and we saw a group of children on a sports field getting ready for their easter egg hunt which made it fell like a close knit community.

Our RV park is really nice, large sites with trees and chirping birds
