And I haven't made any posts to this blog. Time to catch up, again.
We left Lone Star Corral, the Escapees park in Hondo, Texas, on Saturday, February 2, and drove the nearly 85 miles to Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park just south of Fredericksburg. That night we had dinner at Denny's.
The following Monday, we visited with friends, Ross and Beverly Taylor at their home in Fredericksburg, and then we all went out to dinner at Der Lindenbaum, a German restaurant. We had a very nice visit and enjoyed getting together with them again (we'd seen Ross and Beverly last in early September 2007, at Bluewater Lake State Park which is located between Grants and Gallup, New Mexico).
The last time we'd visited Fredericksburg, in April 2001
, we visited the Nimitz Museum
and the Wildseed Farms
. Our original plan was to explore more of Fredericksburg on this trip, including the Pioneer Museum
, but both Earl and I came down with another cold, and neither of us felt like running around town. After years and years of not having colds, this was the second cold we've had within the past few months (the first being after our trip to Idaho in November).
We left Fredericksburg on Wednesday, February 6, and drove 196 miles to our home Coast to Coast park, Lake Whitney RV Resort, north of Whitney, Texas. I broke down and saw a doctor the next day, since my cold had settled into my chest. He prescribed a bunch of pills, and while they helped, after all the pills were taken, I still wasn't completely over the cold (or whatever the heck it was). Thanks goodness for Mucinex! Here it is almost a month later, and I'm probably about 98%-99% over being sick. We did get a chance, though, to eat at one of our favorite Mexican restaurants in town...Tres Hermanos.
We spent 17 days at Lake Whitney RV Resort, then headed back to New Mexico. We're currently at Bottomless Lakes State Park
southeast of Roswell, New Mexico. While the lakes in this park aren't really bottomless (they range in depth from 17' to 90'), the greenish-blue color makes them look like they are bottomless. This park was New Mexico's first state park, established in 1933.
We drove into Roswell to do some grocery shopping and ended up joining Sam's Club again. At one time, we had belonged to both Sam's Club and Costco, but cancelled our Sam's Club membership when we didn't use it that much. However, the only Costco in New Mexico is in Albuquerque, where we're not going to be anytime soon. In fact, we probably won't be near a Costco for a while now, so we rejoined Sam's Club.
We got several inches of snow last night! Unfortunately, I waited too long to go out, so don't have any pictures.PICTURES:
