Doing our usual routine of driving around, and finally deciding as it was Sunday that everyone must be in church, we found an IHOP. Good enough!
After gorging on large plates of pancakes and chugging a million cups of coffee we were ready to go again.
Leaving quickly the next morning was not an issue. I have never seen Laura do her "routine" or "ritual", whatever it is, so fast. On the road we finally managed to cross the Texas border. But after a restless night and a strong want for food my mood turned for the worst. For anyone who knows how pleasant a person I become when I'm hungry or in need of caffeine, this is what happened on the way to Beaumont. The signs on the highway promised great things from this town... "Hungry? Bored? Visit Beaumont!". LIESSSSSS! Turning off into downtown we may as well have entered a ghost town. So where were all these amazing places to sate our hunger and alleviate our boredom?
