Day 13- Elephant Butte, New Mexico November 12, 2017

This morning we waved goodbye to George and Suzie. It was fantastic that we had the opportunity to get to know them a little bit. We are hoping that we will be able to meet up with them again down the road.

We had a really great visit with our neighbours this morning as well. They live in the area and they were able to share lots of great information with us about what to see and do in the south west.  We were on our way to do laundry and had this visit instead, which was way more fun. Laundry tomorrow 😦

We took the kids to the beach for a quick swim in the late afternoon and were able to spot several fish jumping out of the water.

Took time to take a family photo on the beach

Tonight we made Instant pot chicken and rice burrito bowls. It was a hit with almost everyone (which is a feat unto itself) followed up with a bowl of iced cream before bed.

Found this recipie on Pintrest, 20 minutes to yummy goodness

The icing on the cake tonight was the spectacular sunset. All in all it was a great day making friends and enjoying the beautiful fall weather.  We are delighted to find the people here to be extremely friendly and laid back.  So glad to be here.
