Tuesday March 10, 2015 Sunset Texas

Still over cast and cool this morning. The over night low was 46F. It was overcast all day and the sun started to peak through late in the afternoon. High in Sunset was 57F.

We got going about 11:00AM. Took FM51 from Weatherford to Decatur. A distance of 47 miles. We then headed to Alvord to find an RV park. We stopped at the A-1 RV park just south of Alvord.  It was very wet, nobody was in the office and it was $35/night. They also had a lot of rules pasted on the windows. We decided to try the RV park in Sunset. It was mostly dry with pull through sites and they take Passport America. The cost was $12.50/night. Washing, drying and showers are free. It is full hookups with both 30 and 50 amp electric.

Shortly after we got set up Cathy’s cousin Carrol and wife Roxanne picked us up and took us to their home on 90 acres a few miles from Sunset.

When we drove through their gate we saw a large skunk with a very wide white stripe. After we got to the house, Carrol went back and shot the skunk.

Joy had a great time running through the large house and running free outside.

I enjoyed drinking wine, a Merlot, and watching Fox News cover the Hillary email affair. Cathy talked to Carrol and Roxanne about family. Carrol took Joy outside a couple of times.

Roxanne spotted another skunk out side and Carrol went out an shot it, that one we could smell. The vultures were on it immediately.

I took Joy for a walk up the drive. She found an Armadillo that Carrol had shot and the buzzards had picked clean so only the shell remained.

Roxanne made enchiladas for dinner. They were really good. She also had made some cookies for after dinner. Carrol made decaf and brought out a bottle of Chianti for me.

They brought us back to the motor home about 9:00PM. Joy ate all her food in a hurry. Cathy and I caught up on email.
