Our time in San Diego, Texas has come to a close and we are now on our way to Victoria, TX. We originally planned to leave Tuesday morning, but after hearing today’s weather forecast with a possibility of thunderstorms we decided to leave today. The 9 mile caleche road we had to travel to leave MEW Ranch becomes gushy and difficult to drive on when wet. It’s just now recovering from the storm three nights ago but would be impossible for us to drive on if we waited until after today’s possible storms and tomorrow’s definite storms so off we go!
We said our goodbyes to the Morgans who thanked us for doing a great job here while they were gone. They gave us a little metal Eiffel Tower which I will display proudly on our bedroom display shelves. We told Bow and Willie, the dogs, bye, hooked Boots up to Dora and down the road we went.
We didn’t mention this before now but while we were there 2 chickens, 4 peacocks and 1 guinea died. One of the peacocks that died was the big daddy peacock with beautiful feathers. We were considerably worried when the deaths started to happen but shared it with the owners when we communicated. They were very kind and didn’t send us away and when they returned they said it was all caused by chicken fleas. A couple of chickens died before they left from fleas. so we suspected it but didn’t know for sure until they came home. That was our traumatic experience while on the ranch!!
Today was my first experience driving Dora. It may have only been down the long 9 mile icky road and I didn’t go over 15 miles per hour and only passed one other car on the road but I did it! I may take a turn on the interstate soon to get that experience too!
We are headed to Victoria, TX to Lazy Longhorn RV Park for the next three days. We’re hoping it’s some cooler there since we’ll be 2 hours north. On Thursday we go 2 more hours north to Willis, TX where we’ll stay for 10 days and hopefully more.
Ya’ll have a great evening, and ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
