To Santa Fe and Back

We just returned from our annual pilgrimage to Santa Fe, chosen once again because we love the food and scenery, with mountains and high desert and green and red chilies on every plate of food, three big meals a day until we couldn't eat another bite.

One goal was to find some ideas for our fence, which Cheryl does not like all, saying that it looks like an English country garden fence and not at all appropriate in its proximity to our house, which though wrapped in stucco is still very different from the typical Santa Fe house with its rounded corners and beams, but I was hopeful to find some ideas because there are countless stucco walls in Santa Fe.

Finally I saw something that made sense, a way to create a fence gate that recesses into an alcove and is covered with the same barrel roof tiles as the main portion of our roof, so as to create a sense of continuity and ease Cheryl's discomfort.

And for the gate I got an idea from the store front and its nice geometric pattern that would be effective on a gate door, I think.

Details to come.
