Taking the Plunge

Well, we finally had to do it.  The time had come, the campsite we chose for Santa Fe had shut down their showers and bathroom facilities for the season.  Our only choice was to shower in our camper bathroom. I cannot tell you how much I dreaded this.  The space of the shower is 2…
