My last blog encouraged you to have fun and enjoy life, no matter your age…so in keeping with that theme, we have been doing our part.
Mike, the owner/developer of Retama Village, offered a tour of the area, so we decided to go along for the ride. We boarded the safari style ATV along with 8 others and took off. Mike took us
We went to
Smuggler’s Cove where he stores
some boats. If you like, you can rent them for a ride
on the Rio Grande. Or, he showed us a place you
have a picnic lunch. Maybe we will come here on the next warm day.
Yesterday we had one of those “down-days” not a lot of pre-planned activity. Mark and I checked out a new Wall-Mart store, watched a little football, and did a little house cleaning. Last night we all gathered at Mac and Lynette’s
for baked potatoes and salad. Now, you can’t let those “down days” get out of control….so, before the evening was over, we made plans to go to the Don*Wes Flea Market today. So….as planned, we met at Mac and Lynette’s around 11:30 this morning and headed out for an adventure.
First stop was to pick up some new lawn chairs that Mac ordered. Then, there was the stop at
popcorn stand…Lynette chose Caramel Apple…I just got plain Caramel, while Rod went for the Cajun Pork Rinds.
Next stop was through the fruits and
produce. Here I decided to bring home a new variety of
grapefruit…it has been crossed with an orange. I will let you know how they are. The sample was pretty juicy!
Along the way, Mark and Rod
tried to talk us into these hats….but clearly the answer was “NO”!
So….time to cross the street
to the main market area…here we looked at
cute puppy dogs. And, of course all that walking and looking works up an appetite. Deb decided on
mini donuts, while Mac looked for some ice cream, and Rod
stood in line waiting and waiting for this yummy
blooming onion. We all shared…well, that is all but
Deb and she wants NO part of an onion…no matter how good it is!
We were then off to finish our shopping…Donna, Deb and I got music CD’s for the kids, while Lynette was off shopping for a new decorative window cling.
All finished at the Flea Market…but before heading home, we wanted to make one more stop at the Mexican Bakery. Here we found some
great little pastries and some tamales.
Now back to the RV Parks, we are snuggled in for the night. The weather has turned a little cool and there are rain showers in our forecast, but….I bet we don’t let that stop us too much.
But, for now, we are anxiously awaiting tomorrow’s arrival of Kevin and Arlene, www.roamingwhenwecan.blogspot.com, so the fun and adventures can continue!
