We are hunkered down in the trailer in San Antonio, Texas, for the evening. It’s only 8:00 but the fireworks are nonstop. It will be a long evening for us old folks.
We had an interesting experience today. We drove to a park along the San Antonio river with the intention of riding bikes along the river trail towards the downtown. It’s a more undeveloped part of the river. When we parked there were no other cars or people around but as we were unloading the bikes a park police drove through. I flagged down the car and asked if it would be safe to leave our car with all our “stuff” in it. Answer: absolutely not! Turns out there are a lot of car break ins. The officer couldn’t recommend any other places to park that would be safe. Then she said for us to go on our bike ride and she would just stay and watch our car! An hour and a half later she was still there and said she had to chase off some kids who were up to no good. She used the time to do paperwork. Is that awesome or what? Thank you, Jesus, for taking care of us.
Pray you all have a blessed 2016.
We spent the day in San Antonio, Texas, visiting the Alamo and exploring the River Walk. The Riverwalk was especially beautiful with all of the Christmas lights.
We took a city bus from the RV park to the downtown. Boy, are there some characters on there. It was culture shock for us suburban Californians who never use public transportation. But it was awesome to not have to drive in an unfamiliar city and try to find parking. It was a great day!
It took us 10 hrs to drive 220 miles today! You do the math. But there is always something to be thankful for. We said that the beauty of the snow made the day bearable. We spent last night in a truck stop. It was quiet and we felt very safe. Here’s a pic of our tiny trailer next to the 18 wheelers.
Here’s some pics of the drive today.
On to San Antonio tomorrow. A day late but that’s fine!
A fairly rare snowstorm came through right before we got to Las Cruses, NM and El Paso, TX. It was awesome!
I had to drive because John was sick. White knuckles. In some places I couldn’t see 50ft in front on me. But the little Lance with an Anderson sway-control hitch did the trick!
