One More Trip Before the House is Ready

Our house is nearing completion. With the warm spring days upon us, we want to take one more short trip before we have to get busy moving into our new home.

We'll be leaving tomorrow to visit 3 state parks:

South Llano River SP is an old friend. We began camping there soon after it opened in 1990. It was our favorite camping destination when we lived in nearby Ozona, Texas. At that time, we had a folding camper. We'd spend our days in the river and our nights around a campfire. This will be our first time to camp in the park since those long ago days. We did visit the park about a year ago for a short day hike, though.

At Palmetto, Donna will spend her days fishing while I do a bit of hiking. Perhaps Donna will tear herself away from feeding the fish to join me.

From Palmetto SP it is a short jaunt up the road to nearby Lockhart SP. This park is unique in that it has a 9-hole golf course. We have a sport reserved in the campground that fronts one of the fairways, so we intend to relax and watch some of the duffers chase those little white balls around the course. We'll do a bit of hiking, too, and we'll also visit at least one of Lockhart's great BBQ restaurants. My mouth is already watering.

I am doubtful that I will have any internet connectivity during this trip. We hope to be back in San Angelo by the end of the month. At that time, you will see new entries appear as quickly as I can post them.

For those interested, here are links to blog entries on these or nearby places that I have posted previously. Enjoy, and I'll see you down the road.
