On To Retama Village

As I left off yesterday, we were having a great day.  We had an uneventful trip even as we traveled through

Austin and

San Antonio.

We made our way to I-37 around 4:00 which was a perfect time to find our stopping stop for the night.  We had reservations at

Brauning Lake RV Park.  It is a Passport America Park and was a nice place to stay.  It was certainly an easy on – easy off park with level sites, and good wifi.

We settled in for the evening and tried to help the TCU Horned Frogs score a win over Boise State, but they came up a little short on the scoreboard.  But, even with the loss, they ended up with a 13-1 season.  Way to go Frogs!

This morning we were up by 6:30 and leisurely got things together for travel.  We only had about 250 miles to go today so we weren’t in a big hurry.  However, we soon we had

Even though it was pretty overcast all day, I

was soon reminded by this palm tree that we were going to a warmer place.

We made a stop in Edinburg for fuel and from there it was just a short trip on to

our home for the next couple of months.

We were soon greeted by Jack and Danielle Mayer, the owners of this site.  They are staying in another one of their sites, just down the street from us.  And, although we didn’t see them today, Mike and Pat McFall are right now the street from us in the other direction.  We certainly look forward to getting to visit with them soon.

After getting the motor home set up and cleaned up both inside and out, it was time for us get ourselves cleaned up.  Mac and Lynnette and Nolan and Donna are staying at Seven Oaks RV Park about 2 miles from here and they had invited

us over for dinner.  Thanks guys dinner was great and so was the visit.

All too soon this day came to an end, but not before we made plans for some great adventures.  So, I guess you will have to stay tuned to see how those plans unfold.
