February 27, 2012—Spring is springing up all over…in east Texas and Arkansas. The trees are budding; some are flowering. I even saw wild flowers blooming! And the grass is green. It is so refreshing after spending so much time in Arizona and New Mexico where brown is the going color. I missed my green!
I also missed humidity—not that I’m fond of the almost 100% humidity we have at home. But, it is nice not having to rub in medicated lotion after each hand washing. (I never have to use lotion at home.)
For the next five nights, we are staying at an RV resort outside of Texarkana, Arkansas. There are very few people here. And it is very secluded and serene, with woods surrounding it. We haven’t seen the deer that populated our last resort outside of San Antonio (herds of deer, almost tame!), but I’m sure there are critters around.
This resort looks to be pretty nice. We’ll explore more tomorrow, including checking out the onsite golf course. Golf? What’s that? It’s been so long since we’ve had a club in our hands that I think we might have forgotten how to hit the ball. We’ll see.
The resort is also close to Hope, Ark., home of Bill Clinton. We may go there, too.
I think this time will be spent mostly just relaxing—not a bad thing to do, since we’ve been so active the last several weeks.
More to come,
Your Reluctant RoVer,
