Knowing that Thursday, February 17th was going to be a long day of travel Ron wanted to be on the road by 10:00 a.m. We were up and at ’em at 8:00. We had a delicious breakfast of bacon, eggs, hashbrowns, sliced tomatoes, fresh orange slices and toast that Aunt Erma cooked for everyone. Boy have we been spoiled as we have made this journey to Texas. We have had some of the best chefs cooking for us:
Danalyn & Brandon
Aunt Joan & Uncle Don
Cousins Sharon & Jim
Thank y’all for all the wonderful meals you provided for us ~ we enjoyed each and everyone!
Before getting on the road we had to take some more pictures. Do you notice the one of Aunt Erma taking a picture? She is taking a picture of us as Ron was taking a picture of her and Uncle Rex. I just love the daffodils ~ Uncle Rex bought them for Aunt Erma for Valentines Day and we were able to enjoy watching them open from little buds to beautiful flowers.
And before we knew it we were crossing into New Mexico. As you can see from the pictures we had a beautiful day for travel. The picture in the upper left corner is a type of cactus. People cut the stalk off and make walking sticks out of them.
And then we crossed the Continental Divide. We enjoyed all the different desert vegetation that we saw and especially driving with clear blue skies.
During our travels on Thursday we had to go through an inspection station. The Border Patrol Guard was very nice, just asking a couple of questions: were we US citizens, where were we from, where had we come from and where were we headed. After answering his questions we continued on our drive to Von, TX where we stopped for the night. Friday morning we were up early and continued on our journey. Again we were blessed with beautiful weather and glorious scenery. We pulled into Kerrville KOA about 4:30 in the afternoon. We were welcomed by Karen from Womens RV Forum. If you look closely at our picture you can see me being welcomed officially into the Forum as I receive my Flamingo Wine Glass. And of course, we had to have a glass of wine together.
We spent Saturday in Kerrville with a shopping trip to Wal-Mart and getting things organized in the motor home. In the evening we went out to dinner with Karen to a small Mexican restaurant.
Stay tuned for our drive to D’Hanis, TX and the Lone Star Corral.
