I always feel rejuvenated when I get to spend some time in the mountains. Brace yourself I took a few… ok, a lot of pictures…
I went to the city in the clouds.. also known as Cloudcroft NM.
I took my little rv to a place called Cool Pines.. the park was set in…. you guessed it… pine trees! Yes, it was nice and cool too. There was no WiFi and that’s ok by me… but truthfully there wasn’t anything special about this little rv park. We were parked in space 11, yeah my favorite number, however, the guy on his little cart parked us a bit too far up then was all yeah, maybe that’s too far up. Ya think? Then as he was leaving tells the guy behind us, who I had already waved at, and he had waved back, burying his nose back into his phone, she’s got dogs…. he responded with, I got your number… irritated… that was me.
So I set up, all the while ignoring my not so kind neighbor. Who by the way had a huge older dog himself.
Ok…. shake it off and just enjoy… which I did. I drove into town for a couple things.. and I walked into the Kings treasure, it’s a thrift store in Cloudcroft. This book caught my attention and so of course I bought it. Glad I did. I read it in its entirety before coming home. It had been awhile since I got so into a book. Something else had been my focus. That is done and gone.
The RV always gets a bit of attention. Even in these days of social distancing. A very sweet couple from Austin Tx stopped by as they were out walking their pup. We talked about their rig and mine. They said they will be checking out the place mine came from since it was the city they were from. Lol. When I told them I had planned on a hike to a waterfall, they promptly told me, Oh no we are not hikers 😂.
I spent the evening on my love seat, outside, under the pines with my trusty companions. Oh, and I picked up a cute little bottle this lady in town told me was good stuff.
Reading… just enjoying the quiet and coolness of the day.
I almost forgot about the parade… every evening a bunch of turkeys would go by. Cuteness!
The next day was the hike. It was a beautiful place.
The top of the waterfall was just as beautiful…
The flowers were beautiful as well as everywhere!
On the way back to camp, I stopped at a little place that had some amazing veggie hoagies.. ahh dinner and a book.. who could ask for more.
After a couple of cool evenings it was time to go back to reality.
This is the cutest place. Fresh fruit, jams, ciders and lots of other homemade goodies.
It was a wonderful time…
I hope you are happy.. enjoying each and every minute of life.
If you are thinking about them, they are thinking about you…. ok this one is funny, because it cannot be true.
Dime con quien andas y te dire quien eres. Means tell me who you walk with and I will tell you who you are.
El amor es ciego. Meaning Love is blind.
Life is not a destination, it’s a journey.
Ok you get the gist…. They say a lot. Who are they and why do they have to say so much? 😆
Seriously though, if we are the key to our own happiness then why do we have so many people around us that mean so much? Love is the key? Yes, I know love yourself… but isn’t it much better shared?
I can’t make myself tremble just by being, nor can I make myself ache to the core. My heart doesn’t quicken at the mere thought of myself. My voice doesn’t sound like music to my ears either. Rare is this kind of connection, yes I know. Worse is when someone breaks that connection. The magic is broken and then? Is it better never to have known it? And once broken, can it ever be revived? I don’t think it can be the same.
It’s better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all. Well señor Tennyson, I’m not so sure about that.
There is also the red string of fate. Have you heard of this? It a Japanese legend where a person’s pinky is tied to another person’s pinky and eventually they are fated to meet. I’m just here to tell you,that string gets knotted and tangled a bit. Who’s to say one person doesn’t own a pair of scissors?
