Saturday we decided to have a date, so we drove up to Cloudcroft, New Mexico. It's about 30 minutes away and at 9,000 feet, MUCH cooler than it is down here. It was nice!
Here are some pictures I took with my cell phone cuz we didn't want to lug around the real camera all day.
We had lunch at the Texas Pit BBQ restaurant. Mike ordered
Kevin's Mexican Burger Wrap
*Wrapped in a flour tortilla with BBQ, Green chiles and cheese. Then deep fried.*
It was ok.
I had a pulled pork sandwich and pinto beans. Mine was better!
(And then we had homemade pie. Yum! No picture.)
Can you guess what they sell in this shop?
There is a bakery in here that bakes the most delicious smelling pies. We went in once and they said they wouldn't be done for 25 minutes. Came back later...and those were all gone. The next batch still had an hour to go! We'll HAVE to go back!
On our way home we stopped here at Cabin Fever Antiques. The cutest little chihuahua came out to greet us. We asked if he was for sale, but sadly, he was not. I don't know what Cookie would've done with a tiny thing like that running around our house! Probably a good thing he wasn't for sale!
One more stop for pistachios.
I'm glad we got to spend some time away. We have fun together.
