We Are Strangers--We Are Aliens

I'm just back from a day trip with our Sr. Adults.  We headed off earlier this morning to Roswell, New Mexico for a day of sightseeing at the International UFO Museum, historic houses and a natural Wildlife Preserve.

I must say that the International UFO museum was more than I expected.  We could have spent hours in there and we all came away saying "well...maybe it did happen"

After a delightful lunch in downtown Roswell we were off to discover the different architecture of the historic district. We saw great examples of Victorian, Tudor, Prairie, Bungalo and Craftsman style houses.  We then toured one of the premier historic homes (THE WHITE HOUSE--not the one from Washington silly) and it's turn of the century amenities that made this the home in Roswell.

We then journeyed to the Roswell Museum for exhibits from Peter Hurd, Heneritte Wyeth, and more.  I especially loved Peter Hurd's southwestern paintings and one of them had me entranced just imagining the sounds and senses that were running through his mind as he painted it.  And then there was one modern art piece just painted solid greed--called CELEDON!  That was it -one giant paint chip on the wall!

After that we went to the Bitter Lake Wildlife Preserve and saw some wonderful species and learned about the dragon fly who populates the area.  God is truly amazing to think of the dragonfly!

Back to downtown and one more stop at a local quilt shop for the quilters and then we were one the road again.

I love doing these day trips with these folks. We have so much fun!
