We made it down to Canyon Lake Friday afternoon and are staying at the Military Recreation Area. Canyon Lake is approx. 40 miles south west of Austin in the Texas Hill Country. Speaking of Austin, what a nightmare traffic is in that city, especially on I-35 (won't be doing that again!!!)
While down at the beach area, there is this little group of geese (4) and they are a ornary bunch. They seem to think they own the entire area, and proceed to try and run off everybody who come there. Now I don't mind them defending themselves if you approch, but these guys will come and find you no matter how far away you are, just to pick a fight. Of course we learned, if you just stand your ground they will run up to you as if trying to attack, but just raise your hand and the will stop short and bow down. Now this little game seems funny at first, but then gets old quick. This guy here actually ran in for a nip right after this pic was taken and ended up with a shoe to the head for his trouble. After shaking off the little encounter, they decided to leave us alone for the day. (no he wasen't hurt and we actually felt bad, but he just wouldn't leave us alone)
We had a good visit here at the park, cooked dogs and burgers on the grill and enjoyed the 80+ degree weather. Monday we went to see Georges new house and spend more time catching up on everything. It was good to see them again and we sure did enjoy our visit.
Tomorrow we take off again headed towards El Paso, we are looking to make Del Rio where we'll stop for the evening. For our military readers, Canyon Lake Rec Area, is a nice small RV Park and well worth the visit if you should ever find yourself in this part of the counrty. Ok, well depending on WiFi for the next couple days we'll see you along the way, or our next post will be from El Paso. Take Care and we enjoy having you along for the ride.
