The Carved Line and Balloons

Yesterday Thomas and I decided that today we would drive down to Albuquerque to the Albuquerque Museum to see an exhibition called The Carved Line: Block Printmaking in New Mexico and to find a couple of letterboxes. This morning we left Santa Fe around 8:30am and made our way to the museum. When we arrived at the museum we headed inside, paid our entrance fee and then headed to the gallery for The Carved Line. We spent about 45 minutes enjoying the art. There were some amazing prints and we thoroughly enjoyed the exhibit. When we were done we visited a few more galleries and around 10:45am we left the museum. I went back to the car to get my letterboxing bag and then went in search of Wronghat's FENRIS box. We followed the clues and easily found the box. I took the box to a nearby bench to stamp in. After stamping in and replacing the box we walked around the museum grounds and took a few pictures of the sculptures. Then we returned my bag back to the car and then headed to Old Town to get some lunch. We ended up at Church Street Cafe. This is one of my favorite places in Albuquerque. After lunch it was time to head to the next box.

I had looked for this box a few weeks ago but had some trouble and wasn't able to find it. So I ended up emailing Astro D for some hints. Thankfully she emailed me back and her hints ending being extremely helpful. This box is a bit of a mystery - you have to find the location from a couple of sentences. I thought I had the right place but wasn't sure since I didn't find the box. But it turned out I had the right location but just look in the wrong spot. So this time I found We Came to See the Balloons by nm sun. I grabbed the box, took the box back to the car and stamped in. Then I replaced the box and we started our drive back to Santa Fe.

It was a nice day in Albuquerque. We saw a great exhibit and found two wonderful letterboxes. Thanks to Wronghat for a great box and letting me know about The Carved Line.
