11/11 Quick Touring in ABQ
Sam worked hard on biking the Paseo del Bosque Bike Trail while I headed to the ABQ BioPark Botanic Garden. Since I had taken Nora on a marathon training walk this morning ("Leave it! I said, LEAVE IT!") I decided to let her snooze in the car for a bit. This bit of multi-purposing worked well for us, as I really enjoyed my stroll through the gardens, and Sam zoomed off on his mountain bike. After our separate journeys, we came together for all things good: Yummy Mexican Food and a Dos Equis Amber. We decided that we were going to be a bit smarter today about where we were eating, so we used the power of YELP to find Monroe's. Yum. Yum. Yum. We sat at the counter and were joined by a couple of characters. Sam had the tamales and I had a taco salad. Oh. Also, Sam seems to have a SLIGHT sopapilla problem. He LOVES them. Before I could say, "Holy Guacamole!" he had DEVOURED two sopapillas with honey.
After that, we headed to Old Town again to check out some more stores, and we made another great discovery: Nora likes pumpkin ice cream. Wow. We are always learning something new.
