We woke to VERY heavy overcast skies. Chance of thunderstorms and heavy weather starting at 8:45am. Got to pack the rain gear today!!!
Speaking of water . . . not sure this little runabout would stay upright with the weight of that Johnson on the back!!!
So true . . . FUNNY!
Jim . . . didn’t know you had an office in TX . . .
. . . all disputes settled in the rocking chairs out on the porch????!!!
More great flowers today . . .
. . . just growing wild on wooden fences!!!
Fresh from last night . . . still warm !!!
Nice . . .
. . . this was a nice setting too. Living the good life in TX.
What an entry to this home . . .
The thistles are starting to pop . . . lots of black butterflies’ with yellow markings visiting them. Every time I got off the bike to take a shot . . . they would fly away!!!
Creative use of a pallet. Texan’s are very proud of their state and have the state flag displayed EVERYWHERE!!
Got to get in close to see all the detail.
We are back in the Sam Houston National Forest today, where there is an active pine management program. In a year or two, one will never know this was a clear cut!
Got to check if these are termite or wasp mounds. They were everywhere in the ditches today!!!! They are actually built by crayfish. Read all about it here: Crayfish Chimneys.
Really nice new species we saw just before entering Kountze, our home for the night . . .
Funny steeple at the courthouse . . . like it was never hoisted to the top!!!!
Our home for the night, The Relax Inn. Might be sort of difficult since we only have one bed and a rollaway . . . but GREAT
colors AND we beat the rain!!!
The 60 mile ride got us into town about 1:00pm . . . so happy hour began about 1:05pm!!!!
We always compare stories of the days ride and Margie won today by showing the ‘mouthing bruise’ she got from one of the dogs that came out after her today. Lot more dogs since we have arrived in eastern TX. The further east we go . . . Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, the more we will probably see coming out onto the road to visit and say HI!!!!!
