Carrizo Springs, Texas

I was up shortly before 0700 and Jim was out of bed not to long after that! We both had breakfast then got busy to leave. I didn't take very long and we were ready to be on our way. We did make a stop at the dump station and there was already a line of vehicles waiting to get into the park. That huge lake attracts a lot of users! Once the tanks were emptied we were on the road by 0945.

We soon heard from Anne, she and Scotty left Mission and were on the road to meet us in Carrizo Springs.

We made two stops one just because. It was an overlook and we could see the Rio Grande River, that was in Zapata. We also stopped for lunch right outside Laredo where I saw these tiny orange flowers.

We arrived around 1330 and it didn't take long to set up. I immediately started doing laundry, our bin was full. Frederico and Felicia like it better here, no snakes to watch for, only ants. We couldn't have been here an hour when Anne and Scotty showed up! Let the fun begin....

After greeting them we let them get set up and then we gathered outside with iced coffee or in Jim's case, a beer. Of course our coffee had some Kahlua in it. We talked and got caught up, then we ladies prepared our Easter dinner. Ham, Brussels sprouts, mashed potatoes and gravy.

It was very tasty and we had some wine with our meal. We lingered over the table still talking when we decided to head outside.

The guys did some playing on their dulcimers. I took a picture and sent it to Dave, who is back home in Michigan, and he called back! Jim talked with him for a bit. It was nice catching up with him.

Anne and I walked around the campground and found a field of flowers. I'm sure they're 'weeds' but they are pretty.

Back at our site we sat outside until 1945. We were all yawning and chasing the bugs off. So we called it a night and headed inside.

Boo was glad to be inside! He had a stressful day with the drive and didn't get to nap before the Scott's arrived. He was very, very tired. He actually ran to the door to get in!
We both showered then I did the dishes and folded the laundry.
