I took a trip to Nocadoches Texas, as usual I didn’t plan anything I just loaded the dogs up in the truck and took off for Nocadoches. I didn’t know how long I would be gone so I didn’t want to leave the dogs in the trailer, I didn’t think that would be fair even though the trailer is big enough and cool enough. The dogs settled in quickly they love to ride in the truck and both try to get a piece of my lap and somehow they manage it. I don’t mind being covered in dog fur, it is okay by me and being adored by two well mannered dogs is soothing to my soul. So off we went.
We took state highway 59 north out of Livingston, 59 is a good road for the most part.
The ride was a lot further than I thought not that I care that much to how far or how long a trip is, the trip its self is the main thing. Texas is doing a lot of road repair and improvements and we passed through quite a bit of construction on the way to Nocadoches.
When we got there we went to the old part of town and took some photos and enjoyed looking at some old photos of what the town looked like way back in the 1800’s it was quite a place with a thriving business district and social life. I found a shop that sold souvenirs and ice cream; one of my weaknesses is icecream, I see it I want it. I found that they had some unusual flavors of milkshakes and indulge my ice cream desires in a tasty pecan milkshake. I browsed the store and marveled at all the things being sold that had to do with Texas. I could have spent a fortune there but living in an RV makes one think first before bringing home one more gee-gaw.
After looking the center of old town over we headed to the town park so I could give the dogs a chance to get a drink and take a pee on tree. The town has a nice park and band stand and looks well cared for must be humming with activity on the 4th of July.
