Hello everyone! We are back from our recent trip out to New Mexico - the Ruidoso area - and I have a few more pictures to share from my lovely, cool walks out in the mountains. As seems to be the usual way of things these days, our plans for the trip had to be adjusted, but we did manage to get there and my husband had a great time playing in a golf tournament. What was adjusted? Well, we had planned to fly out there (using some of our airline credits from previous postponed trips to Oregon) and our flight was supposed to leave at about 7:30 a.m. At around 3:00 a.m. that morning we were awakened by a text to my husband's phone saying that our flight had been cancelled. Sigh. Since he had already paid for the golf tournament and also had a partner that lives in Ruidoso, we had to jump in the car and drive out there. We do normally make that journey by car - it's about 9-1/2 hours - but we weren't expecting it. Ah well. We made it and here's some pictures of one of my favorite parts of the world. The first picture is from the front porch deck of the place where we stayed and the others are from my walks.
We're back in Kerrville now, but will be going to Austin later this week for a few days. My husband's company was supposed to start their new hybrid thing (2 days in office, 3 days work-from-home) in September, but that is likely to be put off for a while. We'll see how it goes. A lesson in how to be flexible and it's about to drive this 'ducks in a row' and 'all things planned ahead' person (ME!) batty. More walks are needed! Ha! One day I'll talk about reading, etc. Enjoy the mountains (virtually)!
|Even the weeds are pretty right now out in Ruidoso.
They have had huge amounts of rain (for them).
