We were there. When they opened. And it was such a beautiful place to start the day.
Funniest, quirkiest thing of the day? Because there always is something funny. The pretty and unusual bathrooms at the rest areas. Thelma, we aren't in Florida anymore.
I was stunned that they took the time to put such beautiful tile work in. This one is in the ladies room somewhere along Route 10. And look at the view from the bathroom stall in the next one we stopped at:
Another mural and look at that sky!
We came upon a section where there were a large number of these windmill type contraptions. This picture makes them look a bit ominous, but I know they are helping Texans explore new energy sources.
And we spotted our first train!
Thelma and I finally sailed into El Paso so we could put up our spurs and relax. And yes, we did make it in time for the Idol results. ( Our pick won in case anyone cares)
As for The Sacred Cow, well it had a rough day on the road with all the dust and unpredictable roads. Would they be straight? Would there be hills? Would the winds kick up? (they did). I'm afraid, in the case of The Sacred Cow, Texas was a bit of a blur.
Tomorrow we bid adios to Texas and move on to New Mexico and Arizona. We should be able to travel a little more leisurely the next two days and we look forward to what those two days have in store for us.
Two things about back home:
#1 Go Magic!!!!!
#2 Mr. Tennis is managing the zoo at home quite well. However he did send me this picture of Panda:
Apparently The Boston Lady is missed. She really does have a face only a mother could love. doesn't she? Hang in there Mr. Tennis.
