We've been having a wonderful time getting caught up with friends. Friday afternoon Ann and David came up from Los Lunas for happy hour here in Beluga and then dinner at Crepe Michel in Old Town Albuquerque.

Yes, I know what you're saying - you ate French food in Albuquerque, a place famous for its fabulous New Mexican cuisine? What can I say, this restaurant is a favorite of the four of us. We first met David and Ann and a group of their friends on our motorhome trip to Mexico in 2002 and have stayed in touch since then. They have a lovely home in an airport community and we've parked Beluga in their driveway in the past.

David is a pilot and an avid golfer. He's asked Dave to join him at the Isleta Golf Club on Tuesday so we've extended our stay here until Wednesday morning. Dave rarely passes up a chance to play golf and he always has a great time with David.
