Saturday night it was late when we went to sleep. I can never go to sleep easily on the night before a trip. The clock was set for 4:30 a.m. Rita woke up about 2 a.m. to go out but Vince got up with her. I contemplated getting up and leaving but knew I needed more than two hours of sleep so I went back to sleep and slept til the alarm woke me up, got up, took a quick shower, washed my hair, got dressed and was out on the road by 5:15 a.m. I was excited to be heading to see Addie but poor Vince . . he was probably exhausted.
It was a long time before the sun came up. There was some road construction where they have one lane closed and a traffic signal to stop one lane.
There were no other cars in sight but I sat there til my light was green . . like a law abiding citizen!
By the time I had been on the road a little over an hour, the fog rolled in. If it had been that bad at home, I would not have left til the sun was up. I actually could not see the front of my car in some spots. Thank goodness there wasn’t any traffic and no wild and crazy deer on the road. I drove 2-1/2 hours before anyone ever came up behind me.
The picture above is in Breckenridge, TX. I hope you can see the brick streets.
I told Nicole it all reminded me of a scene from Walking Dead . . though I’ve never seen any of it.
It was nice to arrive, nice to get to see Addie, Chad and Nicole, nice to be out of the car.
