Windy, but not any where near what is was the other day!
Got ourselves through Albuquerque before stopping for diesel and had our lunch in the back of the camper at the truckstop...then an easy drive to Santa Rosa, NM.
We are camped at Santa Rosa Lake State Park. A beautiful lake about 15 miles from town. Can see this place would really be hopping in the summer! Probably about 10 rigs here overnight. Ken bar b qued himself a couple of burgers and i had my veggie burger. Probably, (no probably about it) I had a little too much fun last night...but easy to get carried away, when you're sitting outside enjoying the scenery and people watching. oh well, todays another day.
We had thought we'd stay 2 nights here but decided just one as we want to go into town and a couple of round trips just doesn't seem worth it. We thought the park was closer but decided we will do our thing and then head out about 80 miles or so (another long day)..
Santa Rosa is famous for the "Big Blue Hole"...actually I had never heard of it till yesterday, but we're gonna check it out today..apparently this is where scuba divers come for training. Who would have thought in the middle of the desert?!!
