This was the day that we have been waiting for! We have been here since April, having a variety of doctor visits and of course, cataract surgery in both of my eyes. Everything came out fine and we have FINALLY been released to travel again.
We decided to come over to our good friends Bill and Ornell's house to visit with them for a few days before going to Breaux Bridge Louisiana to see some other friends there.
Today's trip was very short, about 90 miles, so we didn't get in too big of a hurry to get moving. Actually, it has been so long since we've done this, we found that we were a bit rusty, but we soon shook the cobwebs off and we pulled out about 10:30.
Actually we had expected to be rained on today but we were pleasantly surprised when no rain fell. We have had plenty of it in the past couple of weeks. Of course, with no clouds and rain, it was hot and humid. There was standing water all around our site, and it didn't take long to break a sweat.
Stella had decided to try driving the truck and pulling the trailer for the very first time. She had done a good job of driving me around when my eyes were broken and I was seeing double, so we thought today might be a good day. There was lots of traffic in Houston, so we waited until we got out on I-10 to switch drivers. There is a rest area about halfway to Port Arthur, so we made out stop there. Stella took a potty break (of course) before assuming the driving duties, but she made it through a pretty hard rainstorm before arriving at the house.
It didn't take long to get set up here, so we were able to get in a little visit with our friends before we took off to get something to eat. Bill took us to one of his favorite Mexican restaurants, the Taco Rey. It was a good choice and we all enjoyed our food.
We are looking forward to some relaxing good times here, just hanging out with our friends.
