A Fabulous Day

We both slept like logs last night—quiet, dark park!  That’s one of the things we love about this park, huge sites under live oak trees, no overhead lighting, no traffic noise—none!  We started out to take a walk and ran into so many people we knew, it was 11 am before we ever got back to the rig! 

Eight years ago while participating in Cowboy Action Shooting we met this couple from Maryland, Angie and Ralph.  We became instant friends—they were about to embark on their full time journey.  The first year we came to this park Ralph and Angie joined us.  A couple years later they came to our home in Montana spending a while parked in our driveway.   Although we’ve kept in touch, we have not seen them since then.

They are in the area staying on a friend’s ranch and will come here to Lake Medina for the Christmas holidays.  Today they drove over to spend the afternoon bringing us lunch!  We had a great visit with them and other folks here in the park—folks would see us sitting outside and stop to talk.  It was so good to see them!

It was a wonderful day spent with friends we haven’t seen in a while.  Tomorrow on to our final destination—Aransas Pass.
