Where are we today ?
Well we are on the road again this morning and all excited. Get to head to Southern Arizona and California, places we really enjoy. Relax here for a bit until the skies clear and on the road at 7:30 this morning. Into Willis and stop at Kroger' gas bar fuel our coach.

Good deal here we have their loyalty card and get a discount 10 cents a gallon puts the price at $2.25 a gallon (.68 cents a litre in Canada with a 15 % exchanged rate, compared to $1.07 a ltre there), too bad we only needed 20 gallons, could have gotten up to 35 gallons with the discount. No problem its a great deal.
We headed out taking the back roads and enjoying the drive, no traffic, no trucks and wonderfully good roads. We eventually arrived at our chosen destination, a very nice Texas rest area on I-10 just past Sonora Texas at 4 pm.
|349 miles today|
|Train coming through town we just waited it out|

|next, Texas hill country, wonderful scenery|
Now onto I-10 heading west Our Destination today is the Texas Rest area just past Sonora Texas. A convenient stopping spot for us right on time at 4 pm. Travelled enough today. Get out stretch again, walkabout, have a cold beverage and whip up supper. Tonight a Turkey Pot pie. So easy and quick to do when on the road. For the recipe click HERE. Just added a small salad and hit the spot, leftovers for tomorrows supper as well.

|nice rest area|
|we are set for the night|
|not too busy, but a bit of road noise, that we can deal with|
|15 minutes for the crescent rolls, 10 more for the pie|
|sure hit the spot today|
|we even had a not too bad of a sunset as well.|
Was a perfect travel day, not too hot or cold not much wind and very little traffic. Making good time, more miles than we like to do in a day, but we are a couple weeks behind where we would like to be. But nothing that we can't do. We have travelled this route many times and seen most of the sights over the years so not a big problem
Thanks again for stopping by, hope you had a wonderful day as well.
