Monday morning we collected our little ford focus which will be our wheels for the next month or so. Not sure about it being black in 100+ degree heat but we will survive. Didn’t take Sharpie long to get the hang of driving on the right again so we were at Grapevine Mills by 10am.
Needed to pick up a few things and check out a dress shop for Sarah that she has been looking at online. Chores are done we headed for Texarkana some 190 odds miles and 31/2 hours away.
We had an uneventful trip and checked in to our hotel in time for an afternoon nap. Well, Ian napped and I blogged and Skyped. We hit Walmart to pick up some fruit, cheese, and biscuits for a light dinner. Sill daylight until almost nine pm
