We started our day in Fort Worth at a nature reserve. We parked up at the visitors centre and started with a 1 mile walk. We immediately came across a couple of large spiders and heaps of different coloured dragonflies. Sam wasn't keen on the walk after seeing the spiders and knowing there might be snakes around. The walk itself was nice though. We came across 'Prairie Dog Town' which at the time we could only see about four of them from the fence ...
... a major tourist attraction. At the back edge of the old stockyards was a railroad roundhouse area. If we had gotten to the area a little earlier we could have seen a cattle drive with long horns but due to the accident we were too late. From there we went to see a couple of mansions of cattle barons. Beautiful old homes that were probably out in the country when they were built – now they are right by the downtown skyscrapers.
We went back down to the ...
... even saw a brahma bull ranch – we wondered if they were for rodeo bull riding; I have never seen or heard of them in any other context.
At one point we stopped to use our camper bathroom and Peg let Tex out as well. He went out, found a few blades of grass for a piddle; and acted like his feet were burning up and he wanted back in the truck. So much for his being a Texan.
We go to the Karstens RV Park about 3:30, unhooked, plugged ...

The rodeo was interesting and a first for us being a truly American or probably Texan affair. After prayers (!) and the singing of the national anthem the action started. We got to see bare back bronco riding, wagon races, tie down competitions and barrel racing as well as bull riding. The people that do this are either very brave or just plain crazy. It was an experience that is worth doing at least once in your life if you get the chance.
... through more traffic and detours. We finally arrived at the Comfort Inn at 7:15! We ordered Pappa John’s pizza and were going to watch Survivor but only saw the last part about tribal council - we got fooled by the time change.
Another exciting day on the road!!
We finally were able to convert a video from March 14th so that it would upload correctly.
