Bill and I took the car to be washed yesterday and decided we’d walk around the Ancha de San Antonio area of town. We found this wonderful old church which we were told is one of the oldest churches in town. We then visited our favorite store in town that carries candles, furniture, art and lighting. We call it Anvil because they use an anvil as their logo and have a large stone anvil at the front of the store. It’s real name is Casa Armida and their merchandise is stunning.
Its been a very long day so tonight I’m just going to post some photos from the day. Enjoy!
Bill and I went out to Fabrica la Aurora yesterday. It’s an old fabric mill that has been converted to shops and art galleries. Most galleries won’t let you take photos inside their shops so here are a few photos of the grounds. It’s quite pretty and the galleries are stunning.
I just wanted to share the views from our house in San Miguel de Allende. We overlook La Presa de Allende to the west and these gorgeous green mountains are directly behind the house to the east. Enjoy!
We’ve had several thunderstorms the past couple of days and the forecast is for more so I thought I go around the house and snap some photos of all the beautiful flowers that grow on the property. Enjoy!
This morning Bill and I finally got into el centro. We had breakfast with Barbara (our guardian angel of Mexico) and her friend, Nora. While we were there we met some caballeros preparing for a festival this afternoon. The town is decorated with green, red and white Mexican flags on every street. This weekend is the big celebration so I hope to get some more photos of the festivities.
On our way into town we pass this bed hanging from a tree adjacent to the corn fields. I guess that after someone tends to the corn fields they need a little rest.
When we got home we let the animals out. I got a nice photo of Juliet and a beautiful butterfly that visited our yard.
