No blog today, folks. I am on vacation at Crystal Beach on the Bolivar Peninsula in Texas with my sister, my best friend, my brother and sister-in-law. It is incredibly beautiful here and the beach is practically deserted.
As most of you already know, I recently gifted myself a vacation to beautiful Angel Fire, New Mexico. The picture above is the view from the back door of the three-bedroom-two- bath Airbnb house we rented.
At only $90 per night, you’d have to wonder why this amazing place was so cheap. Two reasons. No TV and NO Internet.
Talk about an attitude adjustment. I’d never miss TV, but I felt crippled without the Internet. Needless to say, it took an entire day to decompress and stop worrying about everything I was missing – the wonderful blogs I follow, the constant emails that flood my inbox and everything going on in RRBC and RWISA land. But, after a day I let go and thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to disconnect.
And guess what? The world did not stop turning.
My best friend of over thirty years and I drove to my sister’s house in Amarillo and our other traveling partner, Cactus Mike, owner of Cactustown, Texas USA, met us there.
We drove on up from Amarillo and I’ll share a few pictures of paradise.
These are a couple of the unbelievable houses in Angel Fire
The pictures do not do it justice. The peacefulness of being out in nature, looking for rocks to bring back home, or exploring off-road trails is equal to nothing else.
