I woke up early along the banks of the Medina in Castroville, TX.
I broke camp, repacked the buggy, and hit the road.
Sunrise from the east
I started to chip away at the miles.
Del and Joe
Del and Joe pulled over! They offered me a ride into town. I told them I planned on walking and thanked them just the same. They gave me a donation! We parted ways.
I stopped and took a dip at a roadside creek. The cool, clean water was refreshing. I could have stayed there all day.
I made it to Hondo around mid afternoon. I stopped by a Whataburer for some much needed calories.
I hung out around town, keeping my mileage low, and played this crazy soccer game on Facebook messenger with my sister Jen. It was fun!
I made it to St. John’s for the vigil Mass at 6p.m. Everyone from the parish was very welcoming. I chatted with some friendly people: Francesca, Daniel, and Helen.
After Mass I spoke with the priest. He couldn’t give me permission to stay on the property, but he gave me some money for dinner! We parted ways.
I went to a Chinese buffet, ate dinner, and looked up churches within town.
I found the First Baptist Church and made my way. The sun set, and I wasnt able to get in touch with anyone. I risked staying without permission, found a hidden corner, and hung my hammock. I slept great!
