This morning I was back on the road a little earlier than usual so I arrived at Pecan Grove well before noon. It was already quite warm, so I worked up a head of steam while getting settled back into my site.
Today in my batch of mail there was a red mouse pad from Escapees RV Club. It was a token of appreciation for one of my hot-air balloon photos, which was published in the May/June issue of their magazine.
