Spring is finally here and we are enjoying the warmer temperatures and the sun-filled days. Our last posting had us in Dallas, Texas. We moved from there to San Antonio, where we spent a week enjoying tours of the old missions, as well as the wildflowers that were springing forth along the roads.
The bluebells were very prolific this year with entire fields covered with their blossoms. I have placed some pictures in our new album that is attached to this entry. Now that I know how to do this, we will try to include more pictures of our travels.
We next made two moves in one week, which is not our normal habit. We moved to a campground in Stonewall, Texas, near the Lyndon Johnson Texas White House. We spent three days in this area because we were unable to book the campground for longer. (This happens when you donâ€™t reserve long in advance.)
We then moved to Tyler, Texas, where we finished out the week. In Stonewall we were able to spend a day at the Johnson Ranch and some time in nearby Fredericksburg. Both places were enjoyable and educational. Tyler was in the second week of its azalea feastable, although the azaleas had yet to bloom.
Next, we moved to Little Rock, Ark., primarily to visit a cousin of Julieâ€™s whom she had not seen for more than 40 years. We had a wonderful evening with her and her husband, renewing that relationship and establishing new ones. Although the temperatures in Little Rock were pleasant, we were given the impression that the wind never quit blowing. We had strong winds every day we were there.
This week finds us in Grove, Okla., in a nice campground on the banks of Grand Lake. We have enjoyed this area lunching at some of the Route 66 Diners made famous by the Food Network Show â€œDiners Drive-ins and Dives.â€ Our next move is to Branson, Mo.
We have noticed this year the pollen seams to be much worse than it has been for a number of years. Our silver-colored towed car is now a tinge of yellow-green. Our hay fever is also acting up more than usual. Hopefully this will improve as the spring wears on and our travels continue to take us north.
