|My idea of fishing|
This morning w head to Rockhound State Park in Deming NM for four nights, we have thoroughly enjoyed our time here at Elephant Butte State Park and plan to return someday, maybe as workampers. We have not been doing much, bike riding, walking, reading, soaking up the rays and enjoying some nice dinners. Dave has enjoyed his week of fishing, we have a dozen or so catfish in the freezer for a fish fry when we see our son and daughter in law, meanwhile we've (he) made a large batch of chili and froze some, had ribs, a pot roast, fried chicken and one dinner out at a a local restaurant. Upon entering the park we were given a dinner coupon, buy one meal get 1/2 off another, we noticed Hodges Corner Restaurant had a Friday fish and chicken buffet, while there wasn't a lot of things on the buffet we couldn't beat the price, $24 including tip and we left with full bellies.Seemed like the place to go on Friday night, looked like most of the town was there.
The only flowering plant we saw don't know what it is but is was sure nice to see some color in the landscape.
During our walks and rides we saw lots of these gourds, they look like little round watermelon, we took one home and cut it open, it looked and smelled like a cucumber.
Saturday evening we facetimed with our best friends in VT, it was so great to see and hear them, they have been such a part of our life for so long and we miss them immensely, made me a tad homesick. Technology is making it so easy to keep up with each other, after spending the last 15+ years with these friends it's nice to be able to see them.
It has been nice to sit still for a week, it's hard to believe it's November, we are enjoying the sunshine and beautiful weather and back home in VT they are getting colder and snow is on the way. Life is good!!
Until next time...
