We have spent time with our kids and grandkids.
Jim has been helping our son in law out in his construction business and I have enjoyed doing whatever I want to do! :)
I have met some other rving ladies in San Antonio for lunch a couple of times. It has really been fun to get to know everyone and I have enjoyed our many conversations about rvs and traveling.
Lunch at Cheddar's
We have made some modifications to our fifth wheel. Adding wooden blinds has been the biggest change. Jim made the wooden box valances to fit over them and we really like the way it turned out.
We also (I guess I should say Jim also, all I did was pick everything out, he did all the work) added tile to our backsplash to give the kitchen a little touch of home.
We liked the way it turned out, we removed the headboard behind the bed and added tile there.
We're also planning our journeys for when we leave here the first of April. We're planning on going west through Big Bend, Tucson, make a stop in Phoenix to have our graphics redone, Las Vegas and into California going to Yosemite and then meandering up the western coastline up to Bellingham and then begin our trip back to Texas arriving back in November. Of course, as rvers say all plans are in jello.
We also did one in San Marcos and then later took the glass bottom boat tour.
We had tried to meet up in Austin last week, but our refrigerator went out. Now that is fixed and this weekend we were able to go on the Volksmarch I had really been looking forward to. It was in Johnson City at the Benini Sculpture Garden. We had passed this longhorn sculpture many times between Johnson City and Fredericksburg, but had no idea what treasure was awaiting down the road.
Upon arrival, I signed in for our 10K walk (hope I make it). It was a beautiful, cool morning.
The dirt road meandered around the ranch with sculptures popping up everywhere you looked. It was like a little surprise everywhere you turned. Just about every piece inspired some kind of conversation.
We came to the hill climbing to the top where the residence was located. What a climb!
However, once we came to the top, we were greeted with these wonderful vista views.
We arrived at the ranch, check in at the headquarters getting our cd to tour the ranch and Susan and I stamped our passport books. Our first stop was the Sauer Beckmann Living History Farm.
We really got excited when we saw this mama with her little piggies, they were only 5 days old!
A policeman had pulled him over. Susan, in reporter mode, goes outside and asks the policeman what's happening. He tells her he didn't see a license plate (he did see it after he had stopped them). We had a wonderful time watching what transpired. The policeman had his picture taken with the vehicle. A small crowd gathered several times. One of the Dairy Queen employees went out to get her picture taken with the car. My husband then went out to have a conversation with the owner finding out he has been stopped many times by police not knowing if this vehicle was street legal. The owner said it can reach speeds of 165 mph and once was stopped by police in New Mexico going 125 mph. Who knew you could be so entertained at a Dairy Queen? What a wonderful end to a great day!
