We headed out to lunch at the San Marcos Cafe and Feed, followed by a trip to the Harrell House and Museum. At San Marcos, we were seated in front of a window looking into a large pen with peahens and chicks.
It was amazingly entertaining to watch the birds… the peacocks were strutting around outside the pens. The food at San Marcos Cafe was wonderful northern New Mexican cuisine.
After walking the outside gardens amidst the birds, we headed to Harrell House & Bug Museum. We had a hard time finding the place, as it turned out it was in a shopping mall.
Someone showed us around the live insects and we were left to look at the displays of thousands of insects, arranged by type: spiders, roaches, walking sticks, luna moths, butterflies…
The collection is amazing. I sat on the benches, just studying all the different types of bugs. We had a good trip to the bug museum… It was such fun to immerse yourself in a different world. Kids would love this place, and many local schools make class trips to the Bug Museum.
