Sometimes, a day of wandering around a new place on your own without any set destination is just what the doctor ordered. On this day in Santa Fe, I found some beautiful bright colors, a calming park with a picturesque stream, some great coffee and a pretty fierce looking graffiti owl. Spent some afternoon time on a comfy couch in a local bookstore poring over photos from a travel coffee table book. Ended the day at a chocolate house with some chili chocolate. (Where I was so excited about the chocolate apparently, all I could manage was a blurry photo.) If all this isn’t a great day, then I don’t know what is. Here’s to wandering!
