Day 116

Day 116

I arose before the sun, broke camp, and repacked the buggy. I left the secluded courtyard at the First Baptist Church hit the side streets. I made my way through town.


I started putting in the miles. 



It was a beautiful day and I took pictures.


By mid morning I reached D’Hanis. I stopped for a large powerade from Stripes. They have a pretty good deal: a half gallon cup for fountain drinks for $1.99. I go there when I can. 


I hydrated, broke my little roadside camp, and got back on the road.


These kids were all about adventure! They pulled up roadside, asked me a bunch of questions, and peeled off under the overpass. Summer vacation.


I took a break at a rest area along Highway 90 during the heat of the day. It was good rest!


Back on the road, it started to rain. It was a sun shower! People driving by on the 90 must have thought I was some sort of crazy person. It washed away the heat and stress. I couldn’t contain my joy. It was so refreshing!


 I reached Uvalde County line.


I passed into Sabinal. It was Sunday, and once again I kept my mileage low. I hung outside a market for a while and talked with my family through text, messenger, and phone call. It felt good to chat with my sister Emily.

St. Patrick’s, Sabinal, TX


I made my way to St. Patricks on the north side of town. I met Fr. Antonio! He allowed me to stay under a pavillion on the property, gave me water, and opened up bathrooms at the parish hall for me to use! He was a nice man. Wish I got a picture of him. 


I fell asleep in my hammock watching the near full moon. Stray cats fighting on and off throughout the night, reminded me of Alabama!

    Hi Dylan,

    This looks like Our Lady of Fatima and the children of Fatima in the photo. Keep up the good works!

    Sincerely,
    The Hudon Family
