We hadn't seen Julie and Shane in person for some time so this was a great visit. It was like we had just been over for coffee yesterday, which is how it should be. We love them, they love us. We didn't do much - ran some errands, did laundry, went to lunch, laughed A LOT. It was all good.
The star of the show is their Boston Terrier, Sammy. What a ham! And, while not great photographically, we had to do the obligatory family Christmas photo and carried on in general. It only took two tries to get everyone, including the dog, looking at the camera so we considered that a rousing success.
Sadly, it ended too soon. We are tentatively planning a joint RV trip next summer. They get to pick the place and we'll meet them for a week....or hopefully longer. Till next time!
Two other things of note are: Boondockers Welcome and Tickfaw State Park. Boondockers Welcome is a site where RV'ers can find places to stay for free. It is usually folks who RV and have a piece of property where they allow people in transit to stay for a day or two. We availed ourselves of the hospitality of a couple of people on our way to Albany and it's fascinating to hear about other peoples travels and how they got to be where they are. Secondly, Tickfaw. Don't let the name put you off, this is one of the nicest state parks we've ever been to. Great trails, beautiful scenery and wonderfully empty.
That's about it for now. More on Texas in the near future.
