Around 11 we took Central Avenue into Old Town Albuquerque, parked and walked onto the Plaza. We were heading for a special Father's Day lunch/brunch at a favorite French (I know, French food in Albuquerque seems wrong somehow) restaurant snugged away down a pretty little alley in Old Town.
As we approached the Plaza we started to hear voices and music. We rounded the corner and came upon a small car show in progress and the Plaza full of families eating ice cream, looking at the fantastic cars, and some were even dancing to a small band playing in the center gazebo. A regular slice of Americana.
Dave was a happy man, a wonderful lunch to look forward to, a sunny hot day and dozens of meticulously restored antique cars with a little twist...lots of them were on low rider chassis.
After thoroughly checking all the cars out, we continued our stroll towards La Crepe Michel, enjoying the scenery and the beautiful day.
The restaurant is tiny and was crowded on this special day, but we enjoyed cool glasses of white wine and a delicious lunch in the sun dappled dining room.
Later in the day, when the temperature dropped a bit Dave washed a very dirty Beluga (John, we had to drive in the rain....) and jeep, a job he very much enjoys.
It was such a beautiful evening we stayed outside til the sun set.
