Yesterday was another awesome day, weather wise. The day had a tinge of sadness for us because our friends were leaving and heading back to Missouri.

We had a great time while they were here and we saw many beautiful sights. The entire week of their visit we had only one day with rain and that was a brief shower while we were at Seven Falls. We enjoyed this time with our friends and look forward to seeing them back in Missouri or in the RGV this next winter.

Marilyn & I watched our friends drive away, after hugs all around, and it was sad to see them go. Much of the day we would wonder aloud, "I wonder where they are now".

We took showers and put on clean clothing, I dumped the holding tanks, we sat outdoors in our lounge chairs with a good book, and we enjoyed a day of rest.

Jim & Linda asked if they could pick up anything for us during their trip to town, and they returned later in the day with a couple of items for me.

We sat on their patio late in the afternoon, enjoying a cocktail and a delicious snack prepared by Linda.

We did return to our own little home on wheels in time to watch the All-Star Baseball game, but finally had to turn out the light and go to sleep in the 10th inning. I see this morning that the American League won for the 12th straight time. Hmmmmm......

We slept really well last night, with a window open, and this morning the sky is clear with a temperature of 61 degrees. It is just another wonderful day here in the mountains.

I have decided to re-cap the vacation visit of our friends by posting pictures taken while they were here. I will get to that in just a bit.

Yesterday was another fine day to relax and I just can't wait to see what this day has in store.....
