A Walk in the Neighborhood

Today was an every day day in Nacogdoches.  Just 30° in the morning but warming to over 60’s in the afternoon and then upper 60’s for the next several days. 

Rance, the fiberglass wizard at Xtreme was busy making new parts for our coach. So off we went this morning to the Washeteria. First time I have seen one called that.  But it was clean and quick.  We were in and out in 45 minutes. 
Back to the coach to attend to some business and then off to Motorhomes of Texas, a big motorhome dealer (not the factory) in NAC.  Three of the Foretravel owners we had lunch with yesterday cooked gumbo and rice and a bunch of deserts and brought lunch for the entire staff at Motorhomes of Texas.  They do this a couple times a year to show their respect and gratitude to these folks who take good care of their coaches.  There are five go-to shops in NAC for coach service, mechanical service, paint and body work and remodel and upholstery work that are first class.  Sort of a central place for everything.
Lots of coaches for sale. Many brands.
A great lunch.  Great folks.
And then we went for a walk in another nice park in NAC. There are woods and gardens and riparian trails all through the city.  NAC is the home of the Stephen F Austin University.  There are schools of Nursing, Early Childhood Development and Forestry among athers.  Forestry is a big industry in this part of East Texas. It is very odd to see big logging trucks driving on the highway.
Today we went to a big park that had a Frisbee golf course, picnic pavillion, bike trails and a nice long trail along the Lanana river.  

Off we went down the trail for a mile and a half and then over a couple blocke and back through an historic district in old NAC.  There was a couple of really nice homes.

A mix of brick and frame homes, different styles, big lots and interesting landscapes. There is another house in another area that is a prairrie style.  Quite nice looking.
Susan found this sign.  Seems appropriate sometimes.
That’s it for today, more later.
Roger and Susan
