We're Baaaack!

Since we are traveling, it seemed like a good time to start the blog back. Thank you for coming along with us. I had so many kind comments about the return. I'm really nervous about living up to expectations. (Spoiler alert- unfortunately this may not be the most riveting comeback blog.) We are heading to Surprise, AZ. to meet some friends at the Texas Ranger Spring training. We will then stay awhile, play some golf and sightsee. So, as you can tell, this whole serious will be earth shattering.
First we headed to Balmorhea, TX. There is a spring fed pool there that was dug by hand by the CCC. It fills with fresh water daily and stays at a constant 72-76 degrees. People, ducks, coots, turtles, and fish enjoy it. I am sure on a hot day it is refreshing, but that's too cold for me right now.

Barry swam about 1/2 mile with his snorkel and half wet suit. Impressive for someone hooked to four chemo drugs a couple of years ago.  He did admit he never really felt warm. So, kudos to him for the admission and the swim. 

We got in full gear to ride our bikes around the little park. 

We stopped in Wilcox, AZ last night. I went into the Safeway for ice and water, but did not take my phone. Lo and behold, there was a teenager in the store carrying a goat. Yep, a little white goat with a bandana around his neck. Let this be a lesson to us all-always have a camera. You never know when you are going to have a photo op that could have taken an ordinary blog post to new heights. Another travel tip, when you leave your Fitbit in a drawer in the RV while traveling, it will register 17,000 steps and 99 floors climbed. I have done that twice now. I'm racking up some Fitbit badges. Again, thanks for being here. The end


  1. Welcome back! Can't wait to hear more.

  2. Love hearing about your travels! Yea for the comeback!

  3. I agree with your girls, love hearing about your adventures

  4. Go, Jan, for bringing back the blog! And go, Barry, for braving that cold water! Love the pics, too. We need to get out on our bikes more, too, now that the weather is so nice. Looking forward to reading more about your trip!
