Texas Hill Country!
We arrived in Kerrville around 2:00 today. I did all the driving today from Ft. Stockton, about 5 hours in all. It was windy and we had drizzle a lot of the time. Didn't have a lot of sun in our eyes. We are here for 2 nights. The park we are in is a former COE park, former state park, and now goes by Kerrville-Schreiner Park. It is really quite nice. We are in a full hookup site with 50 amp, and the sites in this section are all pull-thru's. In fact, most of them in the park are. There is another part of the park across the highway and we went over there to explore. There were quite a few deer and I'm thinking there might be a lot of wildlife around here because it is quite rustic around the camp loops. Speaking of wildlife, we have seen very little this year. We were commenting the other day that we hadn't seen any javelinas this year. Today when we left the camp, about 5 miles down the road we saw two javelinas grazing by the side of the interstate. Pretty good size, too. On down the road a mile or two were two deer right on the side of the road.
We went out for a drive after setting up camp. Terry needed a tool he didn't have. We took the wrong road back and ended up in a subdivision where deer were grazing in every yard. That was quite a site. Some were laying down in the driveways of this subdivision! I guess you would say those are some pretty smart deer.
Our campsite is quite nice. There is a cabana over the picnic table and we have plenty of room for chairs and the dogs' pen. We are quite close to the Quadalupe River and we can get down to the river from here by walking. It looks to be nicely landscaped down there. We will explore that on our walk tomorrow. There are a lot of hiking trails in this park and across the road in the other section, so will probably take advantage of those.
Till next time. . .
