Thanks for popping in
and joining us on our New Mexico adventures.
Glorious weather, blue skies.
We set off this morning on a little road trip.
This time we headed south. Destination Carlsbad Caverns.
Past the salt flats, through Vaughn.
I remembered that there’s a great diner there,
so we had a pit stop.
Spotted something on the menu which tickled me…
Ham and Eggs:
A day’s work for a chicken;
a lifetime commitment for a pig.
It’s a good 5 hour drive via Roswell.
So we stopped there and met a few of the locals…
Several new murals since last time.
This one is particularly pleasant:
Vast, wide open countryside, ribbon roads, heat haze, huge trucks.
Lots of abandoned homesteads, boarded up houses in the middle of nowhere. Rusty old cars and tractors sleeping in the fields.
Certainly very different to our little island.
I was thinking as we drove into Carlsbad how empty the roads were, how few people were on the streets.
Then we parked up outside the hotel and bam!
Ask me how hot it is down here…
over 90 degrees fahrenheit
32+ degrees centigrade
April 17th. Blimey. Get the cozzy out and get in that pool !!
Time for something to eat, so we found a place called
Buffalo Wild Wing.
Loads of massive pick-up trucks in the car park.
The pick-up trucks are insane!
You could drive underneath the chassis in most English cars!
Lord knows how they get in them!
But in we ventured.
HUGE SPORTS BAR.
Packed out. Monday’s Family Night!
When in Rome do as the Romans do, eh?
Hot wings it is then!
Quote for the day:
Brush it off.
I like that.
If something is getting under your skin, just brush it off.
Nothing is that important. Don’t let it nibble at you.
Brush It Off.
Love & Hugs,
