20 September. Gallup, New Mexico. 8am (Just a quick note)
Sunday morning: we’re about to see off our new friends, a group of 44 Harley-Davidson riders from England, with whom we’ve been crossing paths since the Big Texan in Amarillo. Then we plan to go to mass here in Gallup and have breakfast – maybe at a cool-looking railroad restaurant we saw just up the street.
We’ll have an easy drive today: only about 90 miles, to Holbrook, Arizona, where we’ll be staying at the Wigwam Village (the motel set up to look like teepees – can’t wait!) Hopefully there we’ll have time to get you updated on our progress since Tucumcari. For now, suffice to say that it’s continuing to be a great trip: despite pouring rain in Santa Fe, we had a great visit with friends in Albuquerque and a scenic drive west among the red rock mountains across the border into Arizona, where we’re staying at another classic hotel, the famous El Rancho.
Sure wish I could download some pictures to post. Tom’s care already is the star of tons of other people’s scrapbooks; the ‘59 Skyliner is a huge hit wherever we go!
Talk to y’all from Holbrook!
