So we left Arlington today about noon. We enjoyed our weekend with Jessica.😁 It was sad to leave her but it was time to move on. 😔
Our goal was to be in Albuquerque by tonight but between Wichita Falls and Donley the wind🌬🌬 was whipping and it was so COLD!! Our little RV was getting pushed around so much that Craig had to drive really SLOW.🛵 The big rigs kept right on trucking, passing us at speeds of 75 mph.
🙃 Well, since it was so windy we only got as far as Amarillo, so we are spending the night in a Super Walmart parking lot.
Here are some of the sights on our way. This is a little one street town, population was about 758. The highway was their main street.😮
Another little town had a population of about 2,200.
We saw little houses like this one periodically, with miles and miles of flatland between them. Where do they go grocery shopping? The doctor? Movies? They were out in the boonies, 🏡 with NOTHING around them.
LONG stretches of highway like this one are becomming pretty common to us now. Most times they are pretty peaceful and a little mesmerizing. We witnessed this beautiful orange skyline, and with the jazz playing in the background, it was a pretty amazing moment.
But sometimes the long dark stretches of highway remind me of the Twilight Zone and could be kind of creepy. No kidding! Like this one…
Me and my crazy imagination could think of all kinds of crazy scenes. 😱 But I don’t go there. 😁
Speaking of the Twilight Zone, do you remember the Alfred Hitchcock movie The Birds?
In the trees near us there are hundreds of birds darting around from tree to tree. It’s dark so I can’t see what kind they are, but they sound beautiful. I have NEVER seen this many birds together in the wild, and at night! Breading season maybe? I don’t know. Anyway, we are parked not too far from them so hopefully they will still be here in the morning.😊
It’s late, my eyes are tired. Onward to Albuquerque tomorrow.
