|April 15, 2012 lots of sun, no rain, then it turned dull brown.|
Our other secret is that two weeks ago Jack and I ran away together. We packed our golf clubs, warm weather clothes, rain gear just because, and we headed south to warmer weather leaving Lucy behind to sulk. The forecast for late April in Kansas was cold rain, and wind. That was enough motivation to go online and find a motel and golf course on South Padre Island near Corpus Christi, Texas. If it hadn't been for a few aching joints we might have felt like college kids skipping school.
Two weeks ago we also learned of Ft. Worth I-35's dirty little secret: too much traffic on the highway. It took us two hours to travel 20 miles, and that's no exaggeration. The next day when Austin I-35 traffic pulled the same stop and crawl technique we turned to the the trusted Rand McNally Atlas and discovered highway 183 south and then 77 south to Corpus. No more traffic, instead we photographed wildflowers in bloom, old courthouses built of character, and found quaint places to enjoy along the road.

Pure delectation could be seen on our faces when we stepped foot in the Gulf of Mexico and felt the warm breezes on our faces.
