Where are we today ?
This morning we got up early as usual and just have to love the view out the front window of our coach, right across the lake and eventually the sunrise over the mountains.
|lotsa bunnies here everywhere|
Later this morning ( 9 am) we wanted to take a visit into town (T or C) for a walkabout and just check it out. It is small town about 6,000 people about as big of a place that we like to visit. And the feeling here just puts us back into the past. Old buildings, old motels, hot springs and colorful retro shops in the old town area, kind of a touristy place but not big time. Plus the New Mexico scenery is wonderful too. We could spend a lot of time here in this area, but not this time sure it is a come back to place.
Lots of hot spring places but all are commercial entities pay per use. Don't need them that bad.
|stopped here for some info,|

per person! Not for us.
|how about Freeze dried ice cream?|
Maybe on the moon,

|when pigs fly|
|need to go?|

"Truth or Consequences New Mexico, (the locals call it T or C)was originally called Hot Springs obviously for all the Hot springs in this area. But was renamed after a publicity stunt back in 1950 when the producers of the then popular Radio show wanted to hear from any town or city that would be willing to change their name. There was letters from several interested cities and "Hot Springs" was chosen. And onApril 1st 1950 the show was produced in T or C with a huge fiesta and the town still celebrates this fiesta annually."
|Pretty good deal for $1.99|
Home for lunch and putter around for a while, nice, bright and sunny temps close to 70f but the 25 mph winds we could not hide from! Did manage to get some some e-reading outside a few times, couple walkabouts and even a few minor projects done inside. The scenery here just does it all, gotta love it!
|the marina in the park, pretty quiet today|
|right across the lake from us|
|added a salad and we had a feast|
Thanks again for stopping in and really hope your had an awesome day too.
