March 30 - On the Road Again

We finally made it out of San Antonio!  We'd planned to spend a few days in Denton and visit family but that plan was foiled by a slide that wouldn't go all the way in.  Luckily it was an easy fix - we just needed to get the slide back on track and tighten the tension on the chain and we were ready to roll.  We saw the remains of a spectacular accident on I-35 before we even got out of town.  A semi blew a tire, hit one of those overhead structures that directional signs are put on, and the structure fell on the semi behind the first semi.  No one was hurt, but what a mess!  We left town three hours after the accident and traffic was still backed up for six miles.  Lucky for us the accident was in I-35 South and we were headed north!

A rainy winter makes for very nice bluebonnets and we saw a lot of them along the road from San Antonio to Corsicana.

We spent one night in a church parking lot in Corsicana and two nights in the driveway of our friends in Texarkana.  Becky and Donny were once full time RVers but now have a house and a new dog named Lizzie.  They still have their RV and followed us to Mountain View a week later.

We attended Sunday school and church at Hardy UMC in Texarkana.  What a lovely church.

Everyone was so friendly.  My photos don't begin to do these windows justice but they are beautiful.  The windows were in the back of their old church and people said they wouldn't go to the new church if the windows didn't go, too, so there they are right up front!
