Went out for a nice dinner (more on that in part 2). Then went back to our room for some R&R time.
This is by far the most comfortable hotel room I have ever stayed in! The hubby would actually like to buy their pillows. You actually CAN buy anything they have in their rooms at their website. They also have the best hotel breakfast - biscuits with sausage gravy, scrambled eggs, southern hash-browns; then all the usual hotel breakfast fare - pastries, waffles, cold cereals, yogurt and boiled eggs.
It also helps that I get an awesome employee discount! We can actually stay at a nice hotel cheaper than what it would be to take the RV out and stay at an RV park. I see more trips like this one and we are actually looking into selling the RV!
After checking out of the hotel we did a little shopping Academy, more Starbucks then to the mall, which since it was Sunday nothing was open yet! We left Abilene and headed for Ballinger. This took us about 70 miles out of our way but back when John and I had our motorcycle we rode here regularly to eat at a wonderful Mexican food place they have. (That will be Part 3.) After lunch in Ballinger we headed back to Brownwood/Early. That's the overview of our trip to Abilene, I'll fill in the yummy details in the next two posts. Thanks for stopping by!
