First up, two blog posts in one day? Yes there are!
Hello and greetings from Christmas Evening.
I had suggested to my wife yesterday to go for a drive today as we're not doing anything to celebrate the holiday. At about 1:30 this afternoon we finally trundled out of the house and into our SUV. We had decided to visit a nearby nature sanctuary/wildlife refuge. I'd been there before on my motorcycle and explored some of the refuge about 3 summers ago.
I think we drove just over sixty miles, probably twenty of them on dirt, gravel and mud road surfaces. I had intended to wear my tights under a skirt but instead chose to wear nylons, comfy blue skirt and a camisole. The best part is that my wife took photos of our adventure. I'm working on trying to upload one. Keeping anonymity with the photo is tough. I will figure it out, soon.
The amazing part of our trip was seeing the amount of water there was in the desert. We've had rain in the last few days so it is not surprising to see run-off but to have seen huge areas covered with water was pretty amazing. If we didn't have a body of water 100' along the road at both sides, I'd be shocked.
The first part of the drive, heading out of town, we had three cars following us. Once I hit the dirt, there were no other cars until we hit the "main" road into the refuge. I think we saw four other vehicles and then nothing until we got back on pavement. With so little traffic, a straight road, clear line of sight, it may make for a interesting place to take more photos in the future. Maybe, just maybe I'll bring more than one outfit next time. I've always wanted to be a bit naughty!
Heading back to town it was close to dinner time. I chickened out, I admit it. I ditched the skirt and put pants on to go into the Chinese restaurant but wore a lilac top, festive nails and dangling earrings.
Have a great night,
