      ... what the doctor ordered – a huge fluffy bed with a hundred pillows, a huge bathroom with hot water and fluffy towels and a restaurant/bar downstairs with – drum roll – free drinks for happy hour! Oh baby. Not the best drinks, but the price was right. The bartender was generous and we tipped him appropriately. Free laundry too! Woot!

      We were off the next day, clean, refreshed with just a pinch of a hangover, on our way to Carlsbad ...

      Finally a change in scenery

      Super early start today, and I'll admit I slept through my alarm for a bit too, so I must have been tired. Either that or getting up in the dark when it's freezing cold didn't help.

They left most for the birds and wildlife, but they collected a couple each so they could plant the seeds in our garden next spring.
      I'm very happy to report that we didn't hear or see any rattlesnakes. The area around Carlsbad used to be known as Rattlesnake Flats for the vast number of snakes.

      ... park warden has some sort of sonograph device that detects the sound of the bats moving in the cavern. When we hear sound on the machine we know their coming. Whilst she is giving this explanation, a steady stream of birds that have made their home in the cavern’s entrance are flying out until finally there is a crackling sound on the machine and we all have to be quiet. The bats started flying out in their hundreds. Although compared to some of the photos ...
