(Y-10) I won’t say goodbye, I’ll say fare thee well..

Well, our little getaway has come to an end, but it was really what I needed, some sun, some wind, some wine (actually lots of it) and most of all some peaceful time away from the daily grind.

As posted on the last entry my first stop was White Sand National Monument, after soaking some sun, we spent the night in Alamogordo.

The next day, after a much-needed rest, we went and visit one of our childhood staples, The New Mexico Museum of Space History, it sits high on a hill with some glorious mountains to frame its 4 stories of space exploration.

It was entertaining getting lost between space suits, rocket models, and even a special Star Trek exhibition.

After a few hours of perusing we headed to our next destination, Ruidoso, tuck away in the beautiful Lincoln National Forest, indeed a bastion of peace and quiet.

The first afternoon was dedicated to doing nothing at all, just some reading, which, consequently, I finally finished reading The Servant of the Shard, and enjoying our excellent accommodations.

The Second day we did some light exploring, went to Grindstone Lake, walked the Ruidoso River Trail and finished the day with some wine tasting at the fantastic Noisy Water Winery, in which an accommodating staff walked us through their different varieties and even gave us a taste of their signature green chile wine.

I bought some bottles and hope to write about them shortly.

In all, it was a great outing and just what I needed to get ready for the next phase of my upcoming plans.

Tomorrow, I’ll post an update on my total pages and my progress with this year full of epicness,

Happy Readings!!!
