Road Trip!

That's right I went on a road trip with my girlfriends last week. The 4 of us piled into a Honda Odyssey about 7 am last Wednesday and headed for Cloud croft, NM. It was a 654 mile trip one way. We had a blast! One of the girls' parents have a cabin there and we were able to spend a few days enjoying the beauty of the mountains and getting to know each other even better.

I have some quirky friends, but that is okay because I am pretty quirky myself. We sang songs, played games, watched the hummingbirds fight over the feeder off the back porch, shopped at little mountain hideaways, enjoyed meals together, stayed up entirely too late talking and just recharged our batteries!

The cabin was beautiful with everything we could possibly need and then some. We each had a comfy bed, mine had a bathroom with a jacuzzi tub (which I put to good use the very first night after a 10+ hour car trip) This was no "roughing it" trip, this was camping the only way I like to do it, with a comfy bed, bathroom and heater! It got down into the 40's while we were there.

I had never been to NM before so it was all new to me. Very beautiful place! I will try to collect my thoughts and tell you all more about the trip in a later post but for now I am just enjoying my memories of a great trip with some great ladies!

But glad to be home with my Hubby! I miss Darling daughter but she is having a good time with her grandparents and will be home later this week. Hope you all are having a good Monday, blessings to you all!

Glad you had such a great trip! We used to go to Cloudcroft when I was growing up (in Abernathy, just north of Lubbock) and it was a great place to go vacation.

Thanks for the post!

I bet the low of 40 felt halfway decent after the heat?
