We left Clear Lake, TX, yesterday (Saturday the 12th) at 1:15pm. We stopped in San Antonio to have dinner with my favorite sister and Megan at Rudy's. MMMMM. Creamed corn.
Then we drove all the way to West El Paso. 788 miles. We checked in to our hotel at 1:30 am. In the morning. We didn't do anything but DRIVE.
Oh, we did see one cool thing. In some neighborhood just NW of where 1604 hits I10 on the east side of San Antonio, we saw this huge stag. Like, 20 feet tall. Seriously. Kind of an "iron giant" kind of stag.
Then, we got up at 7:30am and drove to San Diego. Only 713 miles this time. We got to our hotel at 8pm. MUCH better.
With several interesting stops along the way. There's these "The Thing" billboards ALL OVER Arizona. I'll let Ann tell you about The Thing. I just want to share some of the "art work" that has been collected over the years there.
Yeah, it's pretty creepy. Then, this artist took all these tree limbs and made them into...stuff.
And there are DOZENS more of these. Maybe more than a hundred. WELL worth the Dollar admission.
