This is the pool at the Inn & Spa at Loretto in Santa Fe, New Mexico. We stayed here several years ago while on our cross-country trip across America. As you can see, this gorgeous Pueblo-style hotel is the perfect setting for a relaxing Santa Fe vacation.
While we were here, we met up with Sara Eyestone, a famous American artist who just happened to be one of Paul’s neighbors when he was a teenager. We met up with Sara at La Posada de Santa Fe, another incredible hotel option in downtown Santa Fe. Here at La Posada, Sara is the Art Curator for a hotel that once featured the work of Georgia O’Keeffe. Today, La Posada’s walls feature Sara Eyestone’s work along with several other American artists’ creations.
Meeting up with Sara and her husband is one of our most cherished memories of our trip. It wasn’t planned, and we were lucky that she answered the phone when we randomly called to tell her we were in town. We will never forget the delicious fajita dinner with homemade tortillas that we shared with her and her husband that evening. We also won’t forget the fun conversation and warm welcome we received.
We hope to get to Santa Fe again someday. We’ve yet to stay at La Posada, and it’s on our list of places to stay as we continue to live the SPG life through Marriott Bonvoy.
If you haven’t been to Santa Fe, we hope you put it on your list. It’s truly a spectacular and unique place to visit. Let us know and we’ll guide you in the direction of those tortillas. We promise you’ll never forget them.
