Dennis and I are finally beginning to enjoy our trip..The first few weeks were a bit of a trial period. I had no idea how
mentally “fragile” stressed out we both were. Finally, this last weekend, we began to put the bad stuff behind us and get into our “campin’ groove”..We are here at Canyon Lake and the weather has been, well, not actually ideal, but sure warmer than Illinois! We made our first trip to one of our favorite “haunts” here in the Hill Country, the Sattler VFW Hall….
Yep, MacGyver got his icy cold “beer on tap” and I had my glass of wine..All for a whopping $3.75. That little trailer in the photo on the right has been here since we began our trek to the Hill Country in 2005. It looks like an old Airstream, retrofit into a Taco Stand. We have had a campfire almost every night, and Dennis is scoring some serious firewood from the downed Cedar trees in the woods.
Among MacGyver’s many talents, he loves to help those who are still trying to get the hang of backing into a tight fitted space…
We also caught up with some dear camping friends, Wayne and Ronae Seely, originally from Minnesota, but full-timers for the past 6 years. The great thing about this RVing stuff is meeting new and different people along the trail. We got together with some a couple times ..
Wayne and Ronae are on the outsides of the loop. As you can see, there were still some jackets needed, even in the sunshine.
On our walk this morning I took a couple photos of the lake sites that are closed now. Apparently they have had a water leak and between that and hunting season, we are in the only open loop in the whole park…
What a shame that this above loop is closed. As you can see, there are some great views from this loop. So many sites wasted.
It seems lately that my daytime “ensembles” are almost as enchanting as my evening ones…Jeezo Pete, Donna..those jeans are totally OLD LADY wear!!
We have made plans to leave here on New Year’s Day and are heading to Falcon State Park on Falcon Lake, North of Roma, TX. We have stayed here many times before, and I love the exotic birds we see there…Not to mention that the weather is usually nice and warm!
So, now it’s Christmas Eve, and thanks to the Great Techo Wizard, Rick, we have Skyped our grandkids twice…I gotta tell ya, it makes being away much more bearable when you can see and talk to them!! Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas ..Make sure you let the “little kid” living inside you OUT this Christmas!! Obviously, I do!!
I just gotta close with this great quote from the movie Christmas Vacation…My daughter , Terrie, posted it on her Facebook page today, and it pretty much says it all about the stress of the holidays!!
“Merry Christmas To All, and To All A Goodnight!”
