After school, we walked the nature trail around the park at which we are staying. Named Tres Rios for the three rivers that border the resort, it has an abundance of beautiful water fowl that we don’t have in Michigan. There were also a lot of huge fish. The binoculars once again came in very handy but my anglers were wishing they had their poles!
We didn’t do very much today. I caught a nasty head cold that literally came on in less than an hours time. Grocery shopping was a must, though, so I sent everyone on ‘missions’ through the store so we could get done faster.
Grocery shopping day is always interesting. My cupboards and fridge are bare by the time we go but after I restock, they are bulging. I feel like I’m putting a big puzzle together to make everything fit. Fortunately, it only takes a couple of meals before it becomes more manageable. I’ve tried to get myself into the habit of getting everything we need on one trip. Usually, we are pretty close to a store but sometimes we can be as far as 45 minutes away. Plus, we aren’t always sure what we are getting ourselves into. We may get into an area that has a store close by but it could be the only store for miles which usually means higher prices and less of a selection. I have one cupboard in which I keep a stockpile of gluten free foods. Unless, we are near a big city I usually can’t find very much in that category.
The unique building to the right is abandoned. Although, it represents early 1900s architecture in Glen Rose. It is made of petrified wood.
This is our last day at Tres Rios in Glen Rose, Texas. We’ve loved our stay but can’t wait to head deeper into this very beautiful and unique state.
