Marathon Motel and RV Park Day 2

Our second day here was a do nothing in particular day. Again, it was very chilly last night but it warmed up quickly. It was actually hot for awhile this afternoon. After a morning stroll around the motel grounds and taking some pictures we drove into town to the only grocery store to pick up some essentials.

The morning was beautiful, not a cloud in the sky and no wind. We decided to walk into town and look at what it had to offer. There is really a first rate Hotel in town, the Gage Hotel
We really enjoyed our two days here it's a very laid back place with a very good climate. Marathon Texas averages 350 days of pure sunshine a year.

After a quick lunch we jumped back in the car and drove to a park that is located five miles south of town.We were very surprised because it was a lot larger then we thought. It is suppose to be a very good spot to spot many different species of birds in this part of Texas. Didn't spot any today however. Back to the RV and relaxed until supper. Tonight we are going to watch some TV, the campground provides cable with HBO, Showtime and Cinemax. Tomorrow we are going down into Big Bend National Park and I'm sure posting to the blog will not be an option.
