2/4/10, Winona, TX - With a steady rain falling, we delayed our departure from the Gage ranch until early afternoon. We only had to drive 12 miles to a prearranged stopover in the town of Winona, so there was no sense in fighting the rain.
This morning, we relaxed and took it easy while the horses munched on a big round bale of hay. Then, James took me for a recon of the route to the elementary school, where we had our first stop for the day. The Gage’s daughter works with the Special Needs Class, and we agreed to accept an invitation to visit them later in the day.
