More Photos Of Bluewater State Park – Prewitt, New Mexico (GA116)

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 22nd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in La Connor, Washington. I’ll depart here July 24th.

 

 

Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.

 

 

In 2011-2013, Mary and I did a 682 day, 12,679 miles in the motorhome and 8,000 miles in the Bronco, circumnavigation of the United States, which I called The Great Adventure. I called it so because other than my oldest granddaughter’s high school graduation in June in Connecticut, I didn’t know where we would be going or when we would be there!

 

 

So, unless I do something really different and unusual warranting a new blog entry, I’ll be posting entries from that trip.

 

 

 

This entry was posted May 19, 2012…

 

 

The motorhome has been parked here for the last three days. In my last Blog entry, I showed some photos of here at Bluewater State Park.

During the last two days Mary and I took a couple of walks and took some additional photos of the park.

 

 

Here are some more of mine…

During our three days stay here the weather has been sunny with temperatures in the mid to upper 70’s. The peace and quiet here has made for a most enjoyable stay. Today we will move on to Gallup, New Mexico about 50 miles distant.

Bluewater Lake State Park – Prewitt, New Mexico

The motorhome is now parked at the Paradise Casino in Winterhaven, California right across the Colorado River from Yuma, Arizona. I’m here with others…hanging out and enjoying the nice weather.

Mary is tending to business at home. She has made her flight reservations to rejoin me on January 28th.

Yesterday was a sunny day at 79 degrees. Forecast for today is sunny and 79 degrees.

A more relaxed mode..

After our 682 day on-the-go 2011-2013 circumnavigation of the United States, we have decided to slip into a more relaxed mode. In the next few months we will be traveling through areas previously explored. Unless I do something unusual, this Blog will feature a photo album from the circumnavigation and will change daily.

To read about today’s photo album location, click this link… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bluewater_Lake_State_Park
