The Yearly Migration
Well, folks it's time. We have been in our summer home since June 1st....and the weather is telling us the summer is over. Our seasonal friends are packing up too, and we are all headed south, to pick up our lives where we left off.
We have a pod, or a rocket box on top of our car for the trip. All of our clothes, four blanket bags full, and a garment bag will ride on the top of the car. The back is filled with two suitcases, golf clubs, a car seat that we carry around for granddaughters, etc. etc. We will drive nearly eleven hours the first day. We like our second day to be shorter.
We arrived in Childress, Texas about 6p.m.....very tired of the car. The hotel includes a free breakfast. Wouldn't you know it! Texas waffles! Texas, by the way, is very proud of it's shape :) Ahh, someone platted that waffle backwards.
Having eaten our hearty breakfast, we are on the road very early. ...and arrived home before 11am. Lots of unpacking to do. Welcome to Texas Y'all!
How could one persons life be so different from winter to summer? Well stick around and see. I live in a cosmopolitan city half of the year and then head to a tiny town in the mountains the other half.....a place full of interesting people, beautiful scenery, wild animals......and great adventures!
