Dolphins & Whales Bestseller Book Tour Heads to New Mexico ~ 7

This is the seventh post from On the Road with Dolphins & Whales Forever book and event tour. To read the first post, visit this link.To read the additional posts, visit the links at the bottom of the page.

After saying our goodbye's to Roberta Goodman's aunt and uncle near Dallas, we headed into the heat and dryness of the American Southwest. We drove all day to get to Mountainaire, NM to spend a day or so with one of Roberta's good friends.

We stopped at a little local store just before it closed and purchased a few groceries for our stay in the high desert.

It was an extraordinary adobe home on the side of a hill on 80 acres. We were given a tour and engaged in fascinating conversation for the rest of the evening.

The next morning, I woke up with a migraine. Our host had been smoking and it set off my allergies. I spent most of the next day in and out of sleep downstairs trying to move past the migraine and catch up on some much needed rest after all our travels.

I was sound asleep when I suddenly heard Roberta yell and then I heard, "bam, boom, whack, thud." I bolted out of bed and ran as fast as possible to the next room to find Roberta lying on her back on the cement floor staring at the ceiling. She had fallen from the floor above through the trap door in the corner of the room and hit the kiva-type ladder all the way down. Some of her bruising was 8 inches across.

She spent much of the rest of the trip very sore and uncomfortable.

I took a little "dolphin trail" hike without Roberta, since she couldn't really walk at this point. I found little pottery dolphins all along the trail. It was a lovely hike and wonderful that the dolphins were there too!
