Cotton and Windmills

After traveling through New Mexico, we spent some time with our friends, Tim and Lyndsay Lambert in Lubbock, Texas. Lubbock is a nice size city in northern Texas. At our campground we were surrounded by Texas Tech motorhomes and fans since Lubbock is the home of Texas Tech.

We left Lubbock yesterday and drove straight south through LaMesa, Big Spring, and San Angelo until we hit I-10 and traveled southeastward as far as Kerrville - a seven and half hour driving day. The travel yesterday was through very flat cotton, peanut, and sorgum growing country. For over 5 hours all we saw were irrigated cotton fields and wind farms as far as the eye could see. Look closely in the windmill photos and you will see there are thousands of them as far as the eye can see.

It was unusually warm yesterday and the low last night in Kerrville was 82 degrees - We found it a little too warm for boondocking at Cracker Barrel for the night! We are now in San Antonio for about a week or so before we head down to the Rio Grande Valley.

It was great to get back to San Antonio - one of our all-time favorite cities. Last year's road construction is now complete but now they are working on other areas! Such is life!

Check back again for more updates....

Until then, God bless!
