OK, we made it through the night though we did have some giggles over one of the beds which slept like a water bed without the water.
Then it was Marfa, here we come, and the second of our departures from the plan. We learned in a hurry that Marfa has its own schedule….maybe places are open, maybe not. The Chinati and Judd Foundation tours don’t occur until afternoon, and once the family learned that the collections were very modern they didn’t have much interest in hanging around. Guess the artist daughter and I will just have to return.
Rather than leave Marfa in the dust, however, we had to have a little adventure.
Since the little girls and I had been to the top of the Empire State Building, it seemed appropriate to climb to the top of the Presidio County courthouse. Just like in NYC, we got a birdseye view of the town
Marfa may be a hip kind of town these days, regarded as an important art center, but it has all the feel of an updated Old West, at least on the outside. Exteriors have been carefully restored to original condition, but the interiors are definitely minimalist in keeping with the art exhibited there.
Yeehaw! Let’s move on down the road.
