Saturday - April 12, 2008

Wow, today was a real quiet, down day – we didn’t do a thing! The weather was nice but a bit cooler - still very pleasant. Last night we had to turn on the electric blanket, now that’s my kind of sleeping weather!

This is a real nice park, Judy and Paul bought it last July and apparently it was quite run down but they have done a lot of work and it is really looking nice. Apparently they have added a few sites and all of the sites are long pull thrus except those backing on the Miller River and they are large back ins. There is a nice big park down by the river with a lot of live oak trees – very pretty. During this past week the park has been about half full but now it is pretty well full, apparently they have a small rally here for the weekend, then another one coming in tomorrow for three days so they are getting lots of clients. Here is a picture of our trailer and a couple of the park and one of the cows that go by every evening about 6 p.m.

We have decided to stay here until Wednesday so this afternoon we went for a walk around the park and down by the river, then stopped at the office and paid for 3 more nights. At the office they had a bottle of Lavender Margarita Mix and we were offered a sample of the mix, surprisingly it was very good and probably will make a neat margarita so John bought me a bottle, now I will have to get some tequila to try a margarita. There is a large Lavender farm across the river from the park and apparently they have a huge Lavender Festival in mid June.

This appears to be a very busy part of Texas on weekends so we decided to just stay home today and avoid the crowds, with staying a few more days we can do some more exploring on Monday and Tuesday. As well as the spring wildflowers there are about 20 wineries in the area, these attractions plus the lakes and the Town of Fredericksburg with its German heritage are a real drawing card and make this a very popular tourist destination.

Not an exciting day but a very enjoyable one nonetheless; and so ends another great gift of a day and we look forward to the mystery of tomorrow.
