We needed more ice so Margo headed back to the grocery.  (We brought really, really bad ice chests).  While she was gone, I emptied the grey water and sewage tanks.  We have full hookups, so nothing to it.

I caulked the window with clear RV caulk – without caulking the window shut.

We rested during the heat.  I haven’t rested nearly enough.  I figure I’d need another week to get in the right frame of mind.

Our neighbors, Larry and Laura, fishing fanatics, left early like they do every weekday to go fishing.  They’d usually return about 2 or 3 pm.  They looooove to fish.  Their energy put us to shame.

Tomorrow we head home.  I’m not ready.

    Brantley Lake is the only place I have caught fish in NM. There was no success in Elephant Butte, Caballo or any part of the Rio Grande. Next winter head for Falcon Lake in Texas and catch tooooo many large mouth bass. For great fly fishing go to Port Aransas Tx.
