It's National Puppy Day! We never thought we would ever be owned by a puppy again, but fate laughed at us. In honor of National Puppy Day, here is our puppy, Hurricane Luna. She makes us laugh with her antics and definitely keeps us on our toes.
After sitting still for several months, it takes us a little while to get back in the habit of traveling and packing up. We'll be leaving the Rio Grande Valley at the end of this month, so it's time to start getting organized and get into our travel routine again.
We've had the Aqua Hot serviced and we're replacing the steps. We still need to do engine maintenance, such as an oil change. That, we'll do on the road at a nearby Cummings dealer. Dave is still working on a few maintenance projects and should be done by next week. He's cleaned out one outside bay and we'll do the other one next week.
Inside, I've gone through the pantry, closet and several cabinets to bring order back. I still have quite a bit to do, but I still have plenty of time.
After dealing with Good Sam and the steps yesterday, we spent the rest of the afternoon and evening, checking out the places we're going to this season. Making the decision to slow down our traveling seems to have been the right one. We're looking forward to spending a lot of time in New Mexico and Colorado and really getting to see a lot of those states. We've been fortunate enough to find some great campgrounds with beautiful vistas.
So, what else is new this year? Besides the slower travels, we've decided to put Dave's drone to use and will try our hand at videography. There are many places we go to that photography just doesn't do it justice, so we'll try something new this year. Hopefully, we'll be able to share our experiences on here.
We'll finish up our season at the ABQ Balloon Fiesta and spend the winter in Arizona. We have high hopes for our winter home - we'd love to see it become our western area home.
It was another warm day, so we decided to head to South Padre Island and give Luna her first trip to the beach. She loved it! She had no hesitation about running on the sand and she picked up sticks, shells, played with other digs and even chased a little sand crab until it turned to bite her.
I've not seen her smile so big since we got her, and she passed out cold on the way home, exhausted.
The ride home was very quiet...
