We are awake by 6:30am Christmas morning, I set up our Christmas tree and got a nice fire going in the fireplace.
We quickly had some breakfast and exchange our Christmas gifts to each other.
Then it was “dash away, dash away, dash away all” because we have 1000 KM to cover today to get us near Dallas TX.
We started out by heading West on I-40 towards Memphis TN. The Interstate is empty this morning so we are making good time, but had to slow down for the elephant crossing the road.
Past Memphis, we crossed into the State of Arkansas. I never realized that part of Memphis (West Memphis) is in Arkansas
We saw flocks of migrating birds as we continued along our way.
Nice blue sky as we crossed over the Arkansas River.
As we drove through Texarkana we cross over the State Line into Texas. It is kind of obvious that you have entered Texas when you see these plaques on the bridges.
We saw another large flock of birds heading somewhere.
We are staying tonight in Garland Texas, just outside of Dallas Texas. The local Denny’s is open Christmas Day so we each enjoyed a Christmas Turkey dinner. Early to bed tonight because tomorrow we have to be up early for our final day of driving.
