We left Benson this morning and had an uneventful drive to the Dreamcatcher SKP Park in Deming, NM. It’s the first time we’ve changed time zones since mid-October.
A couple of interesting vehicles we saw on I-10 today.
As we pulled into our site in the park, a familiar-looking woman came over to say hello. She and her husband were at the recent woodcarvers workshop at North Ranch. Shirley Miller was learning to do woodburning, along with Don and Jan, and her hubby Doug was a woodcarver along with Bill. Later, the six of us went to dinner, and it was a nice chance to get to know Doug and Shirley better.
Most of us had never been to the Adobe Deli before. Don was the only one who had, and it was many years ago. Check out that huge video screen in the back of the room above. And here are some more pictures of this eclectic place for your enjoyment.
The building started out as an elementary school in 1955.
I’m not sure how old the windmill is, but it looks like it has seen many a visitor.
There are wild things outside and in.
Interesting decorative objects…
On the back of the menu: “Horses, dogs and children are to be kept outside or will be hung at the gallows.”
And a clock that runs backwards.
The food was delicious and plentiful, and the conversations flowed long after the meal was over. If you find yourself in Deming, be sure to check this place out!
We may be spending more time in Deming than originally planned, due to high wind predictions. Tomorrow we’ll make the final decision, but will probably opt to stay put rather than battle 30+ mph winds. If the wind would just be a tailwind, it would be great, but it could be a crosswind, and that could be very bad. Oh, well, there are worse places that we could be held up!
