2nd Date of Christmas

30 Nov

On the 2Nd date of Christmas, Shane took me to the Open Space Visitor Center. I had always heard about this place but never knew where it was.  And let me just say, this place is beautiful and awesome!

We went to see a quilt display and see the birds. The quilts were unbelievable. Some of them looked like painting!

Since birds fly south for the winter, and since New Mexico is South – we saw some beautiful birds in the  the Bosque. The Open Space Visitor Center has some great views of the Bosque where the birds hang out and gossip. Well I like to think they are talking about their travels and the other birds and all that….

We saw Canadian Geese and Sandhill Cranes they were so beautiful and loud! It was really funny watching the cranes land – they are so graceful until they try and land. There were hundres of birds in the Bosque.

If you live in Albuquerque and have not been to the Open Space Visitor Center you must go!

We had brunch at the Indigo Crow Cafe in Corrales since this was our morning date. It’s such a cute restaurant and the food was amazing!

After we ate we went an art show in Corrales. The Fifth Annual Holiday Art Festival  was cute. There was one artist who had their cat just hanging out on a chair in their area. Our cats would never have allowed that. This cool cat was just napping and people watching!

The 2nd date of Christmas was fun and I am realizing that by doing these dates we are really getting to be tourists of our own city and experience places and activities we normally wouldn’t.

    Wow, so pretty! Those pics you took are really fantastic! I have never been there but my dad goes to watch the birds migrate and he loves it.
