Sandia Peak and Visit with Michelle

We’ve been in Bernalillo, NM (just north of Albuquerque) for a couple days now.  We came here to visit with Nancy’s sister Michelle.  Her and her husband Andrew leave in nearby Placitas.

We visited Michelle and Andrew the same time last year.  In fact, we stayed at the same campground – Albuquerque North / Bernalillo KOA.

Today, Michelle stopped by to pick us up.  Our plan was to go up the Sandia Peak Tramway.  Before we left the RV, Tinker had to give Michelle some puppy love 🙂

Sandia Peak Tramway is about halfway to Albuquerque from Bernalillo – maybe 5 miles.  Below are a couple of pictures of our afternoon trip there and here’s a link to the entire album.Sandia Peak - 05 Sandia Peak - 08 Sandia Peak - 09 Sandia Peak - 12 Sandia Peak - Tramway Terminal - 03 Sandia Peak - Tramway Ticket Tramway Ride - 07 Tramway Ride - 03

After we decsended Sandia Peak, we went to Santa Ana Star Casino to try The Feast Buffet.  Tonight was seafood night for $22.95.  I have to say, it was pretty good for the money.

Work Day, Family Visit and a Movie

I worked from the RV today on various Heartland Owners Club work items.

Nancy went into downtown Tallahassee to have a lunch visit with her cousin Scott’s daughter, Christie Schindler Meresse.

After dinner, we went out to a movie.  It was at the Tallahassee AMC Theater.  Really nice theater with recliners and such – but we ended up in the “front row”!  Thankfully, the seats weren’t up against the screen and they reclined pretty well 🙂

We saw the 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi.  We both liked it.13hoursmovie
