Winter Day On The Plaza


It was a little chilly yesterday but there were quite a few people out on the plaza yesterday. I shot this on my way to the Souper Bowl. The Souper Bowl is an event that raises money for The Food Depot. They provide food and household products to needy citizens and households in the northern part of our state. There were 30 restaurants that competed for the best in several categories including best cream soup, best seafood, best vegetarian, most savory and the best. It was so wonderful to see so many people there supporting this much needed charity.

That is cool!

Looks too cold for me. We were at a Souper Bowl party the other night but I like yours much better in that the restaurants are involved and it's for charity!

Have a wonderful Sunday.

I never imagined the Plazza like this, as I saw it, twice, in summer.

Sounds like a wonderful way to spend a chilly day, eating soup :)

I wonder if any newspaper reported the results you mentioned. I'll have to check today to see. We were out-of-town on a short road trip down south...loved the Sand Dunes!!

Nothing like a Plaza visit to feel the pulse of it's citizens. And Santa Fe has one of the best!

A wonderful charity to support! We have a Manna Pantry here in my town, wonderful work they do and you know your gifts are well distributed.

Must not have been too cold! It's always good to get out and about in the winter.

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Now that is a nice endeavour. And to think all the $$$ that goes into that one football game, how many that would feed and give shelter to.

Magpie said...
