Over-nighting here at Wal-Mart after leaving Austin this afternoon.
I spent another fun 4 days with my old buddy Sharon. She took great care of me – we had lots of good laughs and lots of good food. I really miss her company tonight.Let me back up a bit. When I left Ft. Davis on Wednesday, my ultimate destination was Fredericksburg. The town caught my attention on the way west back in January and I wanted to explore it further.
In an amazing coincidence, another Roadtrekker – Jacqueline – who I had met in Quartzsite spent the night in the same Ft. Stockton WalMart I did! What are the odds? We discovered it the next morning. Since we were both headed toward Fredericksburg, we made plans to have lunch together. We had a tasty lunch and a nice time together. I didn't get a photo of her or her rig, but here’s the weiner schnitzel anyway.
Fredericksburg has a great Main Street built for browsing, complete with a Five-And-Dime.
The shop was classic dime store.
When was the last time you saw candy cigarettes for sale? Or Lava soap?
At least I got to see that his intrusive little corpse was properly carted away from the Lady Bird Johnson Municipal RV Park.
Tomorrow I head to Lafayette in the middle of Cajun country. I’ll almost feel like I’m home!Goodnight from Texas!
