Friday morning - everyone packs and we head off (with Carrie and Kevin, her parents Jane & Denis, her sister Laura and husband John) for Jane's uncles ranch near Brady - about three hours drive away - deep in the heart of Texas.

What a fantastic place the ranch is. Built on a height overlooking the Colorado River, the porch of the house gives a great view of the surrounds with a number of ponds - known here as tanks - full of fish and with all types of wildlife in the surrounding 200 acres.

Kevin cut the grass around the the house - not just to keep it down but also because the vibrations of the lawnmower frightens the snakes away from the house. We learned that lawnmowers over here work better if you fill them with gasoline and not with pesticide !!

After dinner, we all sat on the porch and enjoyed a massive fireworks display.
