When the OFM wakes in the morning we will have been boondocked here for 34 days straight. That is no big record but it certainly has passed quickly, comfortably and pleasantly. There is something right about this area of the desert. You can be sure we intend to be back again.
Our plan is to head off into New Mexico for about three weeks and then head to North Alabama for the summer. This is a special summer for the OFM Teams and the Alabama bunch. We are going to have some conversations about the future travels and events. Boring it will not be, you can be certain of that.
In the meantime the OFM has cleaned up all the left over pictures from our stay here and culled them down to just three. THREE! Yep he did an amazing job. These three kind of typify the area.
First is the yucca and lake picture taken in the evening. Amistad/Del Rio has some of the nicest yucca blooms and water scenes we have seen in our travels. This is very typical of the spring scene around the lake.
This is a good representation of the general foliage as you move a bit away from the lake front. Lots and lots of thorns and blooms. In fact the OFM got a mesquite thorn in his upper lip this morning while picking up trash a critter had scattered over the area. They HURT.
The cacti have a mind of their own about when it is time to bloom. The yellow ones have been blooming for a while. These just popped out in the last three days. In a few days there will likely be lots more cactus blooms in the area. That also means the honey bees will be out in full force.
So in the morning we will be heading out for new places for trying to have tooooo much fun.
