It was a wild morning here in the park and probably many surrounding places. The winds were sure causing a ruckus and when it blew our sign down off the hitch, Bill got up to bring it inside. He crawled back into bed and before long he was snoring, leaving me awake listening to the howling for another half hour. The wind stopped, the sudden burst of rain stopped and the night was peaceful again.
|They said it would clear up by 10 am|
|Lots of puddles in the park|
|And before 10, the sky began to clear|
After my shower, Pat and I walked the 75 steps to the Texas Hall for another craft. What would Bari (spelled correctly now) have in store for us today? Again, it was just us two again.
|Pat and Bari|
I enjoy the time to ourselves but at the same time, thinking of the time young Bari gives up to share a craft, it would be nice if more participants showed up. Today, I asked her how she spells her name so no more questions about that. A very nice young lady on staff here as an Activities Assistant who recently got engaged. Congratulations Bari!
Today, we made Welcome signs. A dainty task from a kit but once again, we had fun doing it. No painting required, just gluing. I don’t recall what time it was when we finished, but we got pictures and walked back ‘happy campers’ one more time.
|and of course I went far from the norm|
My gate was crooked and my flowers a mixed bag of colours
I like it!
Bill had showered and we had bacon and eggs for breakfast before notifying Rob and Pat that we were ready to go. Clemson got a treat for looking after the house for us, a chore he takes incredibly seriously, don'tchaknow.
|Not sure if you can read these but the ice house was especially interesting|
Bill drove today and we walked all around the historic section of Glen Rose. The buildings are unique, old and very interesting. We walked through shops that sell old antiques, new creations either hand made or produced and shipped in but they weren’t lacking for anything. We weren’t there to buy BUT it was just as fun seeing the wares for sale. We chatted with a couple of merchants and most of all, I enjoyed the twang of the Texas drawl.
|I absolutely love this sofa, how creative and welcoming it looks!|
|Yes, this makes dinosaurs come to life for me|
|Post office!! So cute!|
The decor over the door was unique with turtle shells
and look who came to say hello!
|Neat stuff in the shops|
Thought of our cowgirl, Nancy for the middle pix
and I loved the oh so soft saguaro pillows
Next stop was Big Rocks Park. Aptly named. The place was packed, again a circumstance from it being Spring break. With many places to ‘play’ we spread out and snapped photos of this strange phenomenon. How did this come to be and was there a river running through it years ago? How did they get so smooth? We clambered, climbed and then conceded that it was time to go home.
|Yay! Dairy Queen!|
|Please take us to DQ!|
And they did. 😍
Back home, Bill retreated to his chair with his book and I set up our chairs outside. With my laptop, in the shade, I began today’s post while Clemson ran around on his rope, getting some fresh air. He could see Rob on their site from looking under the Suite so crept across for a visit. It was getting close to his supper time and we have been able to put him off until 4 pm for the last few days. When he got bored, I took him for a walk around a few park blocks, down by the creek and up the hill behind the pool.
|Used to be the courthouse but now municipal offices housed here|
What a beautiful building,, from all sides
the pavillion in the top corner has the 2nd dinosaur claw print embedded in the wall
|A nice story of the young couple with the horse|
The first family of Glen Rose - The Barnards
|Big Rock Park was very neat|
|Back at the park, the creek water was very muddy after the rains|
but there were 'fisherpeople' taking advantage
Bill lit the Weber to grill our sausages and it was then, when he was outside that I noticed how light it was at 6:15. Daylight Savings Time, I do love it in the evenings. I prepared a Caesar salad to eat with the sausage and after dishes, we had our last 2 pieces of cheesecake. That’s the problem when we have too many rainy days in a row. I bake. When I bake, we eat. The positive side of that is that other than the carbs in the graham cracker crust, the rest of the ingredients are good fat foods for us.

We downloaded pictures from today and watched some of our recorded programs from earlier this week. This was a fun day. Getting some sightseeing done, walking, ‘rock’ climbing, antiquing, puzzling, crafts and last but not least, DQ’ing with my buddy, Rob. The weather co-operated today and by 10, the sky had completely cleared and it only got hot and then hotter. We rose to 76F and the winds died down by 7. Hopefully, this will be a quieter night’s sleep.
|When Clemson disappears under|
the Suite, I know Rob is out
|A tasty easy supper tonight|
Good night y'all!
