It was an uneventful 222 miles from Potters Creek COE to the Holiday Park COE on Lake Benbrook, near Benbrook, TX just West of Fort Worth. It was all rural roads with no interstate so a little more interesting than the other trips. Interestingly, we crossed the Colorado River while passing through Marble Falls, TX - yes, the Colorado River. A little research reveals that this country has two Colorado Rivers - the more famous Western Colorado which originates in the Rocky Mountain National Park, creating many of our western scenic areas such as the Grand Canyon, before emptying into the Gulf of California. The Texas one originates just a little South of Lubbock, TX and empties into the Gulf of Mexico near Bay City, TX. We learn something new every day!

The Holiday Park COE is very nice and like almost all COEs, located on a lake. You must have a park map to find your site as there are no signs showing direction to the sites though the site itself has a sign. Our site is very large with water, 50 amp power and then a dump station on the way out. We have a good strong Verizon signal and the satellite was easy from the roof antenna. There is a nice breeze blowing off the lake through the ramada and picnic table area.

We will do nothing here but relax before heading to central Oklahoma tomorrow for a visit with relatives.
