The drive over on Highway 105 from Delta Downs to Holiday RV Park in College Station, Texas was uneventful. Holiday RV Park is not a place with lots of amenities but it is a very convenient stop for us to visit our old home town. We left College Station a little over three years ago and started our new lives as full timers. We have had a lot of fun over the past four years but we always enjoy stopping by our old stomping grounds. Driving in we could see there is a lot of growth happening in our home town not the least of which being a big expansion to the Texas A&M football stadium, Kyle Field as evidenced by the large cranes in and around it.
Having lived here for over 30 years there isn’t much here we haven’t seen however we still plan to stay a month for various reasons. We hope to visit with many of our friends from our previous life as working stiffs. We certainly plan to visit a lot of our favorite eateries and pubs as well. We can't wait to have our Tex Mex favorites and plenty of delicious Texas BBQ. We also very much enjoy shopping at our local grocery store, HEB.
We arranged to have our teeth cleaned at the local Dental Hygiene school since we will be here a month. Then this is the time of the year that we do our deep spring cleaning of our motorhome. Abbey and the CRV will be getting scrubbed down and the carpets will have an appointment to meet with Mr. Rug Doctor.
Besides all the chores we plan to get in several good walks at some of the very nice local parks, visit Texas A&M University and the George Bush Library We will also play a little Frisbee golf, maybe some real golf and just enjoy the springtime wildflowers that are so prevalent this time of the year. No doubt we will also drive by to see our old house and check on the rent house we kept. Since baseball and softball are in season I hope we can also catch a few games at Texas A&M while we are here.
We also hope to see some of our nearby out of towner friends either by taking a road trip or two. We are now only 170 plus miles from the grandkids so we plan to see them as well. We are sure looking forward to reliving some of our old and fun experiences during our stay here in College Station, Texas…
