Today we woke up in Van Buren, Arkansas and drove 500 miles from the top to the bottom of Texas. Our goal was to reach Houston, and we did, after a long day. We stopped in Dallas to eat (spinach and mushroom enchiladas in red sauce) and to buy allergy medicine. The highlight of our day was a nice sunset followed by our highway dinner from Buc-ee’s Truckstop: Garlic hummus and black refried beans with chips and pretzels, complemented by fresh Guatemalan (or maybe Hawaiian) pineapple.
Bonus – I an including some images from a couple of days ago in Branson: A disparate group of objects vying for attention along Country Boulevard: a giant Titanic, a life size King Kong, the biggest rooster I’ve ever seen, a vintage Dodge truck, a yellow airplane, an oversized Bust of Ronald Reagan, a 20 foot Transformer, and an army of duck boats!
