Location, Del Rio, TX
We drove through light rain and mist all day to Del Rio, TX where we stayed at the Elks lodge.
We left around 9:30 AM and drove south on I-35 towards San Antonio and then west on 1604 the farthest out beltway around the city which intersected Hwy 90 going west to Del Rio. It may have taken us a little longer this way but in the rain it may have been the best route.
It was a pleasant drive on a good road although there is not much to see. The country is all sage brush and mesquite trees which are in bloom right now. All the blooms are a burnt orange or yellow which is quit nice.
We arrived at the Elks around 2:30 and parked. Just as we got hooked up to water and electric the sky opened up for about a half hour. The field got very muddy very fast. The club doesn’t open until 4 Pm so we went looking for fuel and groceries. Fuel was at Wal-Mart for $1.91 and groceries were at a very large H.E.B.
Brenda took this through the window. It looks like we may float away.
Dinner was stew in a crock-pot. We did have cable so watched American Idol.
