Good morning peeps. Ok, this is it, the last of the road pictures. It will be safe to come back here after today!
This is the border station we had to stop at on the way to market. It was quite a ways from El Paso, kind of out in the middle of nowhere. They asked if we were citizens, we said yes, and that was it.
I'm not ever sure exactly where this was. Probably not too far into the trip home, Texas is still pretty green here.
Chris, this photo is for you. We didn't see any cowboys along the whole trip. Not the kind you were looking for. I had one picture on my sidekick from the hotel in Fort Stockton, but its so blurry you can't really tell. Believe me... we really looked. And for sure, no chaps. Sorry. I can't help feeling I really let you down.
This kind of sign would scare the you-know-what out of me if I lived around it all the time. I guess its a matter of what you get used to. The only scarier sign was the one about prison and not picking up hitchhikers about 2 miles from a big rest stop. Ok, yeah, two miles ago I was watching for escapees and now you want me to rest? Between that and the Watch for Snakes warnings, no thanks.
Everyone who recommended we stop at Buc-ee's, you were right, it was amazing. They aren't kidding they have the biggest cleanest bathrooms.. I tweeted a phone picture of them. You can see all the phone photos I tweeted here
This is our favorite Buc-ee's billboard but its like one in probably 100 going both ways. Seriously, every few miles there's another.
Here's a quickie out the window shot of the cotton fields in California south of King City but before Bakersfield. You can see the big bales of cotton, and we saw a bunch of cotton picking machines on our way home. It was very interesting and if it wasn't so far I'd be going back to check it out. I wonder where our California cotton goes? Hmm, I'll look into that..
Anyway, it was a great trip peeps. Thanks for following along with us. Spring Quilt Market is just 7 months away! I'll start resting up now! xo
