A day of rest in Santa Fe

We had a lie in this morning as we didn’t have to drive anywhere – BLISS !! It wasnt much of a lie in but was nice not getting up and having to repack the bags and head to the car. We ate breakfast in the hotel and then took a leisurely walk down to the Santa Fe rail road yard to visit the Saturday farmers Market.

The farmers market runs along the old rail tracks and is an exuberant mix of fresh vegetable stores, musicians, street entertainers (or stoned hippies – not sure which most of them were) and general wares.

Tucumcari to Santa Fe

We started the morning with breakfast in another classic American diner. Kix on 66 is a bit of a Tucumcari icon on Route 66 and the pancakes, sausages, eggs and crispier than crispy bacon went down very well.

When i was first researching where we were going to go on route 66 i came across the following video about a ghost town called Cuervo. It sounded so “American Detective” or “Twin Peaks” i just had to make a pull in off the I40 to check it out.
