We decided to go to Texas for Christmas this year. Two years ago we spent Christmas in San Antonio and worshiped on Christmas Eve at St. Mark's in downtown. It was a very meaningful service and we decided to return there this year. In addition, the trip would give us the opportunity to see the University of Houston where our granddaughter Kylie is attending school.
We left last Wednesday and stopped in Willcox before driving on to Texas. We then spent two nights in El Pasto (technically in the suburb of Anthony), then we were on to Fort Stockton. We have been there a number of times before and enjoyed good chicken friend steak dinners at the Roadrunner Café at the campground. I always enjoy this billboard promoting Fort Stockton.
From Fort Stockton, we were on to Junction where we had good BBQ dinners at Lum's BBQ near the campground. At true Texas BBQ restaurants, the meat is always accompanied by regular white bread. I had a side of creamed corn. John chose beans.
From our trip 2 years ago, we knew we wanted to view the Christmas lights in Johnson City. They are spectacular. You'll see those in my next post.
