We have had an amazing time with these two couples over these past four days. However, they are heading to Llano Grande for a Sunday check in, and we won't be there until Dec 1st, because we wanted to spend some time on the gulf coast.
We watched as they hooked up their beautiful Mobile Suites 5th wheels. Ed and Marilyn have a Ford dually tow vehicle and Bob and Janet cruise around in their Dodge Cummins truck.
|Thou shalt not envy, thou shalt not envy !!|
We departed with hugs and a bit of sadness, but knowing we will see them in less than two weeks really helped. Now, when the end of December comes, I can guarantee tears from at least one of us !
Shortly after they left, it was pretty quiet in our rig, but we managed to get packed up, and said good bye to Betty's. Thank you Betty, we have made some wonderful memories while enjoying your hospitality.
Shortly after we got going, we were not sure if our GPS was taking us on good roads or not, and with a big smile Teresa said " if Ed was here, he would know where to go.... he is amazing with directions, isn't he Trent" !
I was nodding my head in the affirmative, because Ed is blessed with that rare gene that gives him an uncanny sense of direction, and all he has to do is drive through a town once, and he has his bearings.
Boy, what I would give to have that gift. I am not kidding when I say that sometimes Teresa and I will be leaving a park that we had just camped in the night before, and neither of us will remember how to get back out to the highway. We love/need our GPS.
And now ... We are Winter Texans !!
We crossed into Texas, and made our way towards Galveston. We are parked up for the night only a half hour away, so we will have a nice breakfast, and should be there well before lunch.
Not too sure how long we will stay, but it will be our first time on the beach for a long long time.
Look out Galveston, here we come !!
