Alaska’s Travel Diary

Location: USA

MapI declared yesterday that we would have no more posts. Although the day went by pretty uneventful, upon arriving at Comfort Suites in Fort Stockton, we had surprise visitors. Debbie, Chuck, and Ross had driven up from Alpine to surprise us, but mainly Dylan. He and I walked into the lobby to check in and we looked to the right to see familiar faces, but it took a few seconds for it to register who they were. I made Gwynne come in, telling her they needed her at the desk to register. We all had a nice visit. It was nice to see some familiar faces.
We left Hard Rock Hotel & Casino at 10 a.m. and stopped in Las Cruces at one of our faves....La Posta de Mesilla restaurant. Dylan 'oohed' and 'ahhed' at the birds and fish. Gwynne had a taco salad while I enjoyed a beef fajita salad. She partook in a libation, I water. For dessert, Gwynne treated us to sopapillas. Dylan drank his apple juice. He did not want to take in any of the restaurant food. He'd rather have his p, b, and j.
Thunderstorms surrounded us all up and down IH-10, but we really only got rained on once. The view of the super cells was an awesome site! (Jennifer)
