Merry Christmas


I was hoping to have some great photos from our pontoon boat trip on the Rio Grande that we were scheduled to take yesterday. Unfortunately after a beautiful, sunny day in the 70s on Thursday, the clouds rolled in and yesterday our little thermometer never got above 51 so they cancelled the trip. We were actually supposed to go last week but the prop broke on the boat. Hope it works out for next week.

Our new binoculars are great and we’re enjoying watching the birds. We walked on a trail in the state park we haven’t done before but didn’t see much.


One of the many oddly shaped mesquite trees.


We’ve been hoping to see some javelinas, but the park was damaged by a flood a year ago and it apparently killed most of them.

A kiskadee and woodpecker were happily sharing this feeder.


In the spirit of the holidays we decided to give bingo another try last night. One of the work campers seated next to us had a thermos sitting on the table and offered us some of his ‘coffee”. It had dark rum in it, and was certainly a good drink to warm us up and make bingo a little more fun. We lost again so I doubt we’ll go back.

Tonight is a Christmas Eve social, everyone is to bring a desert. We are definitely going to attend that, but we’re skipping the turkey dinner tomorrow. We’re just planning on a quiet day with another pizza for dinner.

Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!


  1. Next to old oak trees, mesquite trees are my favorite. Great photo.

    Wishing you a quiet Blessed and Merry Christmas.
