Road Trip Day 2 – Austin to Springtown to OK (and cats)

If I were an animal, I would definitely want to be some sort of cat. Today, I got to visit my son and his wife and their multiple beautiful felines. They live out in the country in a geodesic dome home built in the 70’s, and perfect location to enjoy nature and cats.

It was rainy when I left Austin, but before long the sky cleared and it was another beautiful, hot, day. I decided to take highway 183 which runs parallel to the interstate heading up to Fort Worth. I enjoyed the hillier, more picturesque route through the small towns along the route. Did you know there is a place called Fairy, Texas? It was uneventful, I saw a lot of cows, and wished I could take pictures while I was driving. Springtown is a small town to the west of Fort Worth, and I timed my arrival to coincide with lunch. Smart, right?

My son was putting the finishing touches on some Texas sized egg/mushroom/pepper/cheese burritos, and they were delicious and filling.

Filling for the yummy burritos

The rest of the afternoon was spent catching up and playing with and petting the cats.

I enjoyed the afternoon, and David packed me another burrito for my supper. They don’t have guest quarters, so I drove another 100 miles north to get a head start on tomorrow, and am spending the night in Ardmore, Oklahoma.
