Sunday morning, I finally slept in without a deadline. What a treat.
As I slept, Bob was up bright and early (while it was still relatively cool) to run along the south River Walk in downtown. He achieved four miles. Currently, he is training for the San Antonio Rock 'n' Roll Marathon in December.
Our plan for the day included playing games with Peri and Jim, our good friends, who were staying at Travelers World for a couple of nights to attend a family wedding which was Saturday.
I spent the early afternoon cleaning the 5th wheel. They came over at 3:00 p.m. We played about three hours of the game Sequence, and snacked, and talked (except when we were concentrating on our next move). That game gets pretty intense when four highly competitive people play! We played for three hours, girls against guys, and were pretty evenly matched.
For dinner, Jim and Peri, took us to one of their favorite Mexican restaurants, Casa Sol. Oh, and on the way to the restaurant, we drove through the neighborhood where they used to live. We saw lots and lots of deer!
At Casa Sol, Jim and Peri recommended the chicken fajitas. So that's what all of us ordered. They were right, the food was excellent.
