It's late evening and I've been doing business all day…. it's quite boring really but quite essential.
Is it just a week ago that I left South Africa?
Miss Lisa and I are off on another adventure tomorrow…
Both of us have worked our little fingers to the bone this year and a week on the road will be wonderful.
And that's just what we're doing…
Many years ago (in our 50's) we did a 'Thelma and Louise' trip…. we hired a fancy car, had our nails done, packed a pistol and down the road we went. 2 gals on a mission.
Same thing tomorrow….(now in our 60's) we have the fancy car, 2 pink pistols (just in case) but now we're a little older we have a shmancy hotel organised for the first 2 nights. We're heading for Santa Fe. Chaco Canyon, Taos and Chamiyo. We're making a film.
Both of us can handle a video camera and we'll be documenting it for posterity.
The story board begins with the reason for the trip.
We have a vision, –
photography, images, light, scenery, interviews, small towns, ranches and the beauty of the South West and it begins early.

My husband and I toured this exact area two springs ago. It is one of my favorite parts of the country. Take the back roads and it’s even better. Have you heard of the “Turquoise Trail”? Ask about it if you don’t. It’s a scenic route on smaller highways through northwestern New Mexico.
There is a cottage industry weaving locally grown wool into beautiful textiles in and around Chimayo. You can walk through village in warm weather and hear the click-clack of looms emanating from the homes. Don’t miss the Georgia O’Keefe museum in Santa Fe!
