Change

Change is all around us. Most of it we can't control. Some we can. I have had a lot of both in my life lately and I'm learning to embrace it. As my life is taking a new direction I decided it was time to take the blog down a new path as well. I will be posting a travel journal of sorts to document our simple journeys and I would love to share it with you. Welcome!

Six degrees of separation......sort of

This week's job site was in Saginaw, Texas.  But our hotel was in Hurst.

Which was practically one block from Richland Hills. 

 Have you followed all that so far?  Stay with me. 

 These cities are suburbs of Fort Worth, which is right next to Arlington. 

Arlington is the home of the Texas Rangers.

We just happened to be here opening week.

Yes, we did!!  

Game 2 of the Season Opening Series!!




We decided to go spur of the moment and had not a speck of Ranger gear with us.
(They still let us in. )

The newly renamed Globe Life Park
(previously The Ballpark in Arlington)


In memory of Shannon Stone, who fell to his death at the park in 2011.

Campground walkabout

The campground is called Piney Point.  Perhaps these first couple of pictures will illustrate why.





If this birdhouse seems okay to you, then your head may be a bit tilted.



Brave birds


For the most part, Spring was just on the verge of bursting. Only a few trees had not yet sprouted a few green buds.  And then there was this lovely lady, all pink and glamorous.  I don't know what kind of tree this is, but the sweet fragrance was intoxicating!






Happy trails!

Next week:  Saginaw, Texas

Around the campsite

We spent 4 glorious days and nights at the beautiful campground with my parents.  The weather was nice with a mixture of sun, clouds and a few sprinkles thrown in. The mornings and evenings were cool--just right for sitting around a fire. As you well see below, we went through a stack of wood. We only left camp once for a quick trip to town. My next post will have pictures I collected on our walks around the campground.

Into the wild

Well, not exactly. My version of camping doesn't get too primitive . But that title sounds more exiting than "Back to Nature" , don't you agree?
This is an experimental posting from my phone.  Short and sweet may be the MO.

You can see our trailers through the tree.
