We meant to camp at Texarkana, AR tonight, but we weren’t particularly enthused with the tent sites at the KOA we selected (open grass patches next to a playground and some big RVs, not good). So we scrambled and headed for the closest National Park. No luck there either: a number of Texas parks are closed now due to flooding from the recent rains.
We decided to simply drive farther tonight and stay in a hotel.
So first we ate dinner at Bryce’s Cafeteria.
Meh, standard cafeteria food.
We then settled on Quality Inn in Mount Pleasant, TX. Nice! Three star hotel for a two-star price. The room amenities were great, and the standard free breakfast was easy. Texas-shaped waffles make everything nicer.
We even got our laundry done. Two thumbs up for this Quality Inn!
