Join us as we travel North America in our Holiday Rambler Vacationer,
since August 2006
Where are we today?
Hot and humid again this morning coffees, computing and a walkabout. Past the pool while it was being cleaned, it looked so inviting I could not refuse a refreshing morning dip, just wonderful.
I also came across a two foot long snake on the driveway that looks like he had ingested a hardy meal and was not going too far in a hurry.
After lunch we went for 30 minute drive to visit Bob and Jody in Weslaco TX, rv friends we met a few years ago who have settled down with a winter home in Texas and summer home in Ontario. We had seriously considered buying their coach last summer a beautiful Air Stream Landyacht. Well the drive ended up a 60 minute drive we took a very scenic route. Past acres and acres of sugar cane.
The roads were signed differently than our directions had told us, but we finally did make it. We got the tour of their magnificent two bedroom house and yard and picked a large bag of grapefruit from the huge tree in their yard, don't get them any fresher than this!
We relaxed and chatted in their "Texas Room" getting caught up with each others lives, then before we knew it time had slipped away and it was time to head back home for supper.
Being as we are so close to Mexico I whipped up some very tasty beef burritos for supper. If we stay here long enough I think we would learn quite a bit of Spanish and eat more Mexican food. But I can here some dry desert cactus, mountains and desert floor from southern Arizona calling us in the near future. Still learn some spanish there but will be much dryer air.
Supper done then chat for a bit, read our books and watch a movie, another wonderful day.
