We really enjoyed David staying with us on his short break between finishing his assignment in Birmingham, UK and moving to Chicago, IL for his next project.
We hope to visit David in Chicago before he moves on to Virginia Beach in May.
I was not able to do all the motorcycle rides that I had planned as we had the joy of looking after our granddaughter Evie after Charlotte was admitted to hospital in anticipation for the birth of the twins!
Evie showed me how to enjoy KBiK!
February 12th was a special day with the birth of the twins, Flynn and Georgina. Charlotte recovered quickly and we hope to welcome Flynn and Georgie home in March!
In the evening we enjoyed the Manager’s Complimentary Reception at the hotel, after which we had dinner at Saint Arnold’s Brewery
On Friday we drove south to League City to spend the whole day at Space Center Houston. We enjoyed the tour of NASA’s Johnson Space Center visiting the Houston Control Center, the Astronaut Training Center and Rocket Park.
Our second son, David has spent the last three years working in Europe. Two years in Paris working at L’Oreal’s headquarters and then a year in Birmingham, England working for Jaguar-Land-Rover. We are very happy to welcome David back to Texas!
We enjoyed riding two of the Three Sisters; TX 336 and 337. We did not ride the third Sister, TX 335 because the low cloud and misty rain turned the road wet making the twisties a bit more treacherous.
The Three Sisters are probably the best roads in Texas for motorcycle riding.
It was an enjoyable weekend of riding and being with a few close friends.
I have enjoyed organizing and riding in the WinterSTOC event in 2019 and in 2018.
This weekend, Kathy and I returned to the Lower Pecos Region of Texas to visit Seminole Canyon State Park to see more pre-Indian shelter settlements and pictographs in Presa Canyon.
We had a great day with our great guides, Lance and Susan. All of the other nine people who had booked cancelled, so we had the tour to ourselves. It was a full day of hiking, bouldering and bushwacking down Seminole Canyon, and then up Presa Canyon to the pre-Indian Rock Art sites. It started off cool and foggy but the sun burned through and we had a beautiful clear day.
The Rock Art was stunning, mystical but so full of meaning. Very well preserved in great detail in Black Cave, but more indistinct and blurred in some of the other sites more prone to erosion and spawling of the limestone.
