Czech this out!

Whenever we drive through Texas I am intrigued by all the Czech hotels, businesses, bakerys, etc. We have never stopped before. So just north of Waco, on I 35, (exit 353) we saw a Shell Gas Station with $1.49 a gallon gas, less our 5% off for using the Shell Credit Card, how could we resist? It was very crowded, and why not? While Paul was loading the gas, I went into the large business behind it. Now that was crowded! Fifteen people waiting for baked goods, and they looked excellent. The sausage roll was very popular. I got right into the sandwich lines, snagged a chicken salad on homemade wheat. There were probably 25 different types of sandwiches on several types of homemade bread. Had to choose in a hurry. Grabbed a loaf of wonderful white bread and a very home made rice crispy treat. I was in carb heaven. All excellent and at a reasonable price. Since I hadn't eaten since 9 am in Weatherford, french toast and ham, and it was after 3, that sandwich disappeared in record time. We are stopping there on every trip from now on.

We got on 77 at Waco and took it all the way to Stinton, just a few miles from Port A. It was a pretty trip. Found a RV park for the night near Rockdale. Made the mistake of going into town for a grocery store. Very scary, very shabby, black gang banger town. Left in a hurry and had peanut butter bread for dinner. Next time we will get to LaGrange or Giddings, they had nice parks. Our park north of Rockdale was nice, just too near Rockdale.

Weather here in Port Aransas is warm, and the beach is nice and clean. All too soon the sea grasses come in and mess it up. This is my clean up inside day, cloudy and windy. Helps my allergies to be in air conditioning, and am feeling much better. Paul is going to go to town in the golf cart for supplies.

Paul played poker at the park last night, he says he is out of practice. We went to happy hour at Rick and Shirlene's drive way even though they aren't there yet. Missed them. Nice to see our neighbors. The park is quite empty. Heard that 45 rigs aren't coming because of the economy and death and sickness. Good year to get a spot here!
