Years ago I read about Bluewater Lake State Park. The name enchanted me. I vowed I’d camp at Bluewater someday.
Someday is now!
“Beauty over convenience.”
That’s my usual rule of thumb. Upon entering Bluewater Lake State Park I need to decide whether the crew and I will camp at a lovely, lake-view site like this one . . . .
“Why would you do that, RVSue?” you ask, perplexed.
“Well, dear reader, I do not want us sleeping with the propane heater on. It makes me nervous. It’s cold and we probably will need the heater during the night. With electric I can run the heater function on the air conditioner while we sleep.”
If I may digress a moment . . . .
About ten years ago while trying to make a decision on what rig would work best for us, I looked at Class C motorhomes. I quickly dismissed them because I wanted a vehicle separate from our home and dragging a toad around didn’t appeal to me.
Anyway . . .
That’s why I never learned much about the details of living in a Class C, including how a Class C is leveled.
I choose a site where we don’t see the side of an RV when stepping outside.
(The photo below was taken after the wind tore the heck out of our old, blue mat. But I’m getting ahead of the story . . . .)
Bridget’s car makes a big difference in our daily lives! Her car glides on smoothly paved campground loops, giving her a comfortable ride while the Chihuahuan Dynamo burns some of his endless energy.
We check out the boat ramp area.
Here’s a website with photos of huge tiger muskies caught at Bluewater Lake, as well as a pic of a sucker fish (the reason the muskies were introduced). The page is dated 2012. I find it interesting, not only for the fish photos, but also for the shot of the lake at full water level. Sigh.
As we leave the boat ramp area, the Canine Ranger introduces himself to Reggie.
As for Bridget, she’d rather not associate with local riffraff.
Ever since we arrived at Blue Lake State Park, I’ve taken advantage of the strong internet signal to publish posts on this blog. I pay for two more days in order to continue catching up.
This New Mexico spring weather keeps us indoors anyway!
