Today was one of my three days off. I spent early morning soaking in hot mineral springs while idly watching a school of carp circling in the Rio Grande. My plan was to take a picture of this carp dance but as I was lazing about one of the dams in the Rio was released and now the carp have all retreated to mud holes or puddles wherever they can find them.

|You can now see the shore across the river|
|The carp have mostly disappeared|
|I didn't take this picture but this is similar to what it looked like before the dam was released|
What I have decided is that this will be my last workamping job. I have unsubscribed from the daily "worker wanted" emails and will not renew when my workamping membership expires in August. That's it, I am done. It's been an experience, but I will no longer be enticed into working for my keep. I don't wanna work!
I sold my interest in the land owned by my former spouse and that will give me enough money to live on. At the end of the year I will file for social security which will add even more monthly income. At least enough money that with my simple life, I can simply live.
