Sunday January 6th[Still a day behind due to poor connectivity in this remote area of Texas]
Left Austin around noon today heading west. Staying the night here at Sonora Caverns RV Park, a working ranch that Sharon found online. It’s pretty here and remote. I’m the only camper in the campground. With these clear skies, there will be an abundance of stars to gaze upon tonight.
|Well, almost the only camper|
I had a wonderful couple of days in Austin! Even the gloomy weather was welcome because it ameliorated our guilt about hanging around Sharon’s comfortable house rather than doing tourist stuff. Besides, we were very busy laughing, chortling, giggling, and snickering.
As promised, Sharon introduced me to migas Friday.
Migas is a traditional Tex-Mex breakfast dish with eggs, peppers, onions, tomatoes, cheese, and ranchero sauce. This web photo is way better than the ones I took.
|Notice the fresh flour tortillas. Is there anything better?|
|I want a tortilla machine!|
Then we did some thrift-store shopping. Sharon came home with this fabulous chic Sigrid Olsen knee-length, empire-waist jacket. The pink and gray material is beautiful, though the colors don’t translate in the photo.Happy Hour was mucho fun with Sharon’s sister, Lisa, and about 5 other pals. We had margaritas, salsa, and queso. A nice group of ladies!
Sharon’s sister, brother, and sister-in-law dropped by for a visit on Saturday. It was great to see them all. None of them remember me from North Dakota but it was fun reminiscing about being military brats.
What a nice break visiting with Sharon has been! She took such good care of me and even did my laundry! It was sad to pull out of her driveway but we hope to meet up again on the return journey.
