Another Very Windy Day!
Today dawned bright and sunny and the brown skies were gone. There was some cloud cover but still basically a nice, but a bit cooler day. Again it was windy.
Gordon had heard that there was a market at Old Mesilla today so we drove over there around 9:30 a.m. but no market to be found so we took a drive to the northwest of Las Cruces and found the Leasburg Dam. The viewpoint for the dam is in the Leasburg State Park and we found that they had rv sites with electric and water. They were quite nice pull through sites, don’t know how much they were but there was a train track that ran basically through one end of the park. Maybe next year when we hopefully have satellite TV, we’ll be able to take advantage of some of the state parks.
We headed back to Las Cruces and stopped again at Dripping Springs which is the foothills of the Organ Mountains then on into Mesilla again. The market was up and running if you call a couple of tables of jewelry a market so we just drove through and then back to the RV to get some lunch.
I called White Sands Community RV Park this morning and they don’t take reservations. She said she had one 50 amp site that might free up today but there would be no problem with 30 amp sites so we’ll have to take our chances if we want to stay at this park. It’s the closest park to White Sands National Monument and that’s probably where Gordon will be spending most of his time this week as long as it’s not windy. This time of year is usually quite windy in New Mexico as we found out last year when we stayed in Carlsbad.
When we got back I had a nap and watched some home decorating TV. Don’t do much of that anymore. I always used to have HGTV on at home.
After my nap, I went and got some groceries at SuperWalMart in preparation for leaving tomorrow. It was still really windy. I almost lost my favorite hat for the third time today!
Called my older sister, Betty. They are leaving for Florida this week and then going on a cruise of the Amazon. Lucky them!
Gordon went out to take photos at sunset but it turned out to be a wash.
Tonight’s one of my favorite TV nights!
