We went outside this evening and saw the planets all lined up. From our photo, it looks like the moon is full, but it was only a Crescent Moon.
Wednesday, February 29 - Our last night to attend a social. Since it was Sadie Hawkins day, they played an abbreviated version of the Newly Wed game. Our friends, Donna, Norma, Angie and Rick were among the seven couples that participated.
There were some disagreements between the couples, but no couple had an altercation of any kind. Our friends, Sandy and Dave, were the winners.
Just a little beauty from around the park.
It was another wonderful, memory-filled winter. A very special "Thank You" to our dear friends, Rick and Angie. We love you dearly! Miss you already.
Thursday, March 1 – OFF WE GO!!! We've been in the state of Texas since October 29, 2011 and it's time to head West. We still have a couple more days to spend in Texas. We'll be over-nighting in Eagles Pass, and then spending two nights at Davis State Park to visit the McDonald Observatory. Then a run through El Paso, TX and we'll be in New Mexico for another over-nighter on our way to Tucson, AZ.
We were anxious to get moving this morning and hit the road soon after daylight (about 7:30). We traveled the entire day along the southern Texas border with Mexico. Once past Laredo we were in the wide open spaces. But there's oil out here! I think we were the ONLY non-oiler working rig on the road. Truck after truck flew by servicing the many thousands of oil wells in this area.
Housing is definitely in short supply. There are numerous RV Parks (I'm using the term generously) where workers are parked one after another in a dirt field. There are temporary restaurants set up and trailers for rent for long term workers. Money is just flowing out of the ground!!!
We arrived at the Kickapoo Lucky Eagle Casino in Eagle Pass, TX, shortly after noon. We have full hook-ups but are really camped in a parking lot. The website said camping was free but nope....cost was $15/night. Oh well, we're only here one night.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y'all back real soon. Have a great day!
