Leaving Van Horne TX

Saturday April 10th 2010

We got up early and on the road before 9am.  That may not be early for many of you but for us these days it is plenty early.  We have really gotten into relaxing and taken it easy.  Mike relaxes more then I do, but I try.

I did a little driving today, my first attempt behind the wheel of the new MH.  Mike was white knuckling it the whole time.  He pretty much likes to be the one doing the driving.  I just wanted a little practice just in case.

So many wild flowers along the roads, I’ve never seen anything like it.  The colors of phenomenal.  The  bluebonnets are everywhere, they are the Texas state flower.

The pictures are not that great, it has been cloudy and raining since we left AZ. 

P1050885 TTs favorite spot when we are traveling.  Had to throw a cat picture in, it’s been awhile.

P1050925 We stopped for gas and saw the two car haulers with some pretty nice old cars on them.

Made it to Ozona TX today early in the afternoon so we spent a little time checking out the town.  I love towns that have the town square with the gazebo in the center and the court house and other government buildings around it.

DSC_0007 Ozona is the only town in Crockett County TX, hence the statue of Davy Crockett.

We ate dinner in the park. Lucky us the sun came out for a few hours in the evening. After dinner and  walked around the town some. 

DSC_0011 This is a true drive-thru, never saw a drive-thru like this, pretty interesting.  The Ice House is a liquor store, with beer coolers on both sides, you do have to get out of your car to get what you want, but if it’s raining you stay dry.  Not sure what the building was before it became a liquor store. 

We spent the night in the visitor center parking lot, no RV parks in town.
