Sue arrived last night right on time. The toughest part of picking her up was navigating through DFW. About an hour before I had to pick up Sue, I had dropped off the folks I had been working with this week without much trouble. A lot of the ramps within the airport are under construction and even without the construction it's like a rat maze. This time through, I missed the ramp to enter the terminal area and I wound up driving all the way through the air port, several miles, and out the south entrance to make a u-turn to get back to the terminal. I finally found Sue, but our troubles weren't over. We pulled up to the toll booth to get outing as luck would have it we got behind a limo that was having a problem with the toll booth operator. We couldn't back up because of the traffic lined up behind us. We waited about 15 minutes before the issue was finally cleared up and we could pay our toll and leave. What should have been a 15 minute round trip from the campground took about an hour. DFW is a confusing airport.

We went to Big Daddy's Ship Store and Cafe for dinner. It's right across the lake from the campground. Since the lake is still rising, Big Daddy and the Marina had to build a pontoon bridge from the parking lot to the floating barge where the restaurant and store is. I had a Big Daddy Crazy Burger - 8oz with cheese, mushrooms, fried onions, tomato, lettuce, and mustard ( I guess that's the crazy part). After watching the sunset over Grapevine Lake we headed back to Winnie.

Since the water level had started to cover the road in front of our site and the forecast was for lots more rain this week end we decided to leave the Vineyards today and move west of Fort Worth for a couple of days. We drove to Weatherford, TX and are at a KOA for tonight. We'll probably stay through Monday night. I need to have Winnie's generator looked at because it won't start. I'd like to have it in case we lose power. I may end up adding another Camping World to my list, if the RV repair shop right next to the KOA can't do the work. Stay tuned.
