I realize we never shared photos from our last visit to one of our favorite towns. So, for this Friday Five we’ll feature Saint Francis and other scenes of Santa Fe. Long-time Live Work Dream readers and Tripawds fans may recall why Santa Fe means so much to us. The plaza downtown is where we the PBS crew filmed part of Why We Love Cats and Dogs with us and our Chief Fun Officer Jerry. But there I go digressing, yet again…
While we’ve visited Saint Francis Cathedral a few times now, I never recall walking all the way around the building. That’s where we discovered these new statues, sculptures and scenes of Santa Fe.
New to us at least, considering how old some of this stuff is. Though calling it “stuff” seems somewhat sacrilegious.
Saint Francis has special meaning to us, as the patron saint of animals and the environment.
So we got up close and personal with him on this visit.
More Scenes of Santa Fe
But old Francis isn’t the only saint we payed homage to this time. Nor was his basilica the only cathedral we visited.
On our run through town we also swung by Our Lady of Guadalupe Cathedral in Santa Fe. And as our run along the river trail took us to the outskirts of town, we discovered the good lady gets around.
Of course, religiosity plays a big part throughout all scenes of Santa Fe.
Religion, history, and legends of conquest all play a big role, which many refuse to forget. Like the story of Onate’s Foot, which a woman on the path told us as we passed this colorful mural.
Why were we running around to see all these scenes of Santa Fe, and when?
That was Thanksgiving morning, and it was the final day of our 2021 Tripawds Virtual Marathon. We had much to be thankful for that morning indeed.
With so many scenes of Santa Fe, this fun Friday feature clearly deserved more than five photos. Find more in our Live Work Dream Galleries. Got a topic idea for the next Friday Five? Leave a comment with your suggestion and I’ll see what random collection of pics I can come up with from our 15 years on the road.
