The weather this morning was mild and overcast. Today was a date on my “must cache” list. We left the house before 9:00, found one cache quickly, stopped at McDonalds for breakfast, and found seven more before going back home.
One of the caches was at a large convenience/fuel stop place. In front of this complex were three life size sculptures of longhorn bulls. In my search for the “treasure” I got up close and personal with the south end of a bull going north. Yikes!
Soon after getting back to the coach the rain started. After about an hour, the storm passed through the area and we continued our eastward trek. Soon we left Texas and crossed into Louisiana. Honk, honk! Yahoo!
We parked at Walmart in Shreveport, LA. At six there was a geocachers’ meeting for Leap Day. We were at a beautiful water front park on the Red River. The mosquitoes were after Bill (He’s not that sweet!) so we didn’t stick around after the event, but we had a good time with a group of about 40 people for “29” minutes.
