Now, I'm not really one for planning in advance Dear Listener. So, I ended up getting stranded in Washington D.C. during this trip to the States - my big American Adventure, first time back in 2 years - and ended up driving from the Nation's Capital down to Orlando, Florida.
A place I've never been.
Interesting - will tell all in the next Podcast.
But here's the thing - was happy to escape the London Fog and did not mind driving to Florida and its beautiful coast - as seen in the photos above and below of the Sun rising on New Smyrna Beach.
Had a great meal at Boston's Fish House in New Smyrna - again I'll tell all in the upcoming Podcast.
But didn't really check the weather reports for New Mexico - the next stop in my travels.
Oh, sure - had heard about the snow storm - the blizzard - the unprecedented dumping of white feathery powder all over Denver - but didn't think it'd hit Albuquerque.
See these folks sleeping above?
That was me for 2 days in the fabulous El Paso International Airport.
Had no choice but record a podcast to commemorate the event - had to wake some people up. Sorry Wayne for not being able to do the show with you this week but am sure you understand.
Anyway - finally made it to New Mex. It's a friggin' Winter Wonderland!
These are some photos of my little plot here in the mountains.
It's colder than it looks.
I'll edit the Podcast over the next week or so and upload it so all can share vicariously in my misery. In the meantime I leave you with another photo of the beautiful sunrise at New Smyrna. Take care everybody and hope you all have a great new year.
