On the Road Again

We crowned our visit with a family dinner at my niece's house last night - spaghetti, Caesar salad, and the dessert that my sister had made - all delicious. When we got home, everybody else headed off to bed, but my sister and I stayed up until 1:00 again. We didn't want to give up a single minute.

At 5:10, the alarm clock set us in motion, and I got one last hug. Now Robin and I are packing up, heading off toward San Angelo in just a few minutes. I am feeling torn, not to mention tired.

I see that the RV park in San Angelo has wi-fi, so I'll post properly later today, presuming we do stop there and not keep going to eat up miles. This is the part of the trip where Robin gets the bit between his teeth and wants to drive and drive and drive, and I keep telling him that there's no hurry.

What a nice dinner and evening that sounds like. I'm glad you had that time together.

Seeing where you are and what your travels are bringing!

When I leave Texas, I'll have a 15 hour drive back to WNC - I plan on stopping along the way and finding rest at some Ye Olde Hotel!

The dinner was delicious, Debbie - plus, I had time to sit across the table from my niece and ponder how much she looks like Renee Zellweger. ;>)

Kathryn, you'd better be stopping at Ye Olde Hotel, or I'll have to come and thump you (affectionately, of course) ;>). All along the Mexican roads, there are signs that read "No maneje cansado. Tu familia lo espera," - I think we would say "Don't drive when you're tired - Your family is counting on you." I approve of those signs. Have a safe journey.
