I’m always behind in my blogging. I need to catch up. We are back at Storrie Lake State Park in Las Vegas, after spending a week at Iska’s in Santa Fe again. So, briefly, here are some shots of the past 3-4 weeks or so.
Here is one reason I haven’t blogged lately – my new toy. An inkle loom I found in Santa Fe when we were at Iska’s the first time. It makes bands: belts, straps, trim, etc.
I have made several bands and am getting better at it. It’s a nice, small loom. Easy to weave in my RV, or take outside and use it on the table in my shelter. Just finished weaving a band with Rasta colors today. Still need to finish the ends and get a couple of D-rings to make a belt.
Anyway, we’ve been camping with the gals again lately:
We had a nice 4th of July cookout with John, our camphost and friend:
John took a picture of us gals one day when we were out walking the dogs and he was out taking pictures of some baby birds.
We were all parked together in a row. A nice neighborhood:
After 2 weeks at Storrie, Riley and I headed up to Heron Lake. The plan was to bounce between Heron Lake and El Vado Lake for a month or two. We had to pass through Santa Fe, so stopped for a week with Iska and Larry. We caught another couple of bands at the Plaza – The Rifters and Ballroom Thieves.
Plans changed when Barbara went up to Heron Lake and found out the Verizon tower up there was out, due to a storm. She came back to Las Vegas, and Annie and I decided to do the same. We ran into Ryan here, who Riley and I saw at Quartzsite and Yuma in Jan./Feb. last year.
Ryan has been out to Heron and El Vado (when the Verizon was working), and more recently, Coyote Creek State Park. We picked his brain on how the Verizon is up there. Sounds like it’s workable (plus the campground has wifi), so Riley and I will probably try Coyote Creek once our stay is up here at Storrie.
Nancy is here, and Renee, who we met here a couple of weeks ago. Annie got back here just after Riley and I pulled in on Wednesday. Then Roxanne drove up after getting her new cast in Las Cruces. Annie and Roxi and I are sharing a site (it’s been great!), but plan to spread out when 2 electric sites open up tomorrow. Barbara got back on Thursday. She and Nancy are sharing the site next to us until Nancy heads out in a couple of days. And we met Paula, but she left today. We have all been hanging out and walking dogs. We had a happy hour the other day and grilled together yesterday. Life is good. 🙂
All caught up. Yay!
