Back to Fort Worth for Thanksgiving

We left the Foretravel factory in Nacogdoches, Texas about 10:30 and pointed the Roadrunner toward Fort Worth.

It was a glorious day to be on the road. Spectacular actually. I never knew how beautiful the countryside is around Allen, Texas. Rolling hills, cattle ranches--it was gorgeous.

We arrived at the Holiday Park, COE Recreation Area at Benbrook Lake (Fort Worth) about 2:30. We were here in June and it is near my brother and his wife. We will be spending the next couple of weeks here.

Sue has had knee issues for years and is having knee replacement surgery. Appreciate your prayers for her on that.

It took a while, but we found a great site with 30 amp electricity and water.
We swept out the coach, set up the flag and worked on the bikes a little bit before dinner. We cooked some pork on the grill and finished up with enough time to run over to Brad and Sue's.

They are getting ready for Sue's stay in the hospital. Friends were nice enough to pack their fridge full of frozen casseroles since she will be 'out of commission' for a few days.

We got back well before the 10:00 PM curfew. We also got a campsite that is closer to the front gate. Four months ago we were late, the gate was closed and we had a mile + walk to our campsite. If that happens this time, we it is more like a 300 yard walk. :)
Not a whole lot to say today except that thanks for viewing the Roadrunner Chronicles!

  1. Looks like you've got a very beautiful spot there at that park. Great views of the lake for sure.
