Texas Hill Country 2

We ran over to Fredericksburg for lunch; a great little tourist town with tons of boutique and specially shops, with something for everybody. We've been here before, maybe three years ago, and truly enjoy the town's homey feeling.

We’ve extended our stay here in the Texas hill country area, namely Kerrville, San Antonio and the Austin area. We’ve had some rain that seems to come and go fairly quick, and surprisingly, we’ve had no mosquitoes since we left Florida. Actually the weather is refreshing. We even have the windows open with a nice breeze and fresh air instead of the muckiness and heat and hum of the air conditioners going all the time.

We still feel like rookies. Most of the people around us are seasoned RVers. The couple next door and the ones directly across from us have been on the road for five years and they still love it. I guess it helps if you know what you’re doing.

We’ve seen more deer here than anyplace else: a herd of 20 or more right near a major roadway we were on and they didn’t even look up to see who was honking at them. Now I know why Texans have those big iron grills on their pickups. There is also a deer called an Axis deer imported from India back in the ‘30s. Fully grown a male Axis deer will weigh between 150-180 pounds.

The Empty Cross sits on a 23 acre hilltop over looking Kerrville and can be seen driving East or West on I-10. It’s non-denominational and built solely with charitable contributions and gifts. The statues are beautiful and the setting worth a stop if you’re ever in the area.

We are running down to Corpus Christi for a couple of days on Tuesday and then maybe north to the Dallas, Fort Worth area. We are also starting to think about heading back home to Goodyear for doctor appointments and so on… no pressure here. I’m just the driver…
