August 30

Jim made breakfast in his dutch oven - sausage, hash browns and eggs. We hooked up and drove back to Houston. We backed the Casita into the driveway so we could unload it and clean it up before returning it to the storage lot. Carolyn immediately went to work cleaning up the overgrown plants in the yard. While we were gone all of the azaleas in the front yard flower bed had died from the drought. We will have to replace them with something more drought resistant. This trip was a great way to escape the Texas summer heat. We didn't have to use the Casita's air conditioner until we got back into Texas.
