Leaving Lake Conroe, we headed due west to Medina Lake
just out of San Antonio. ..which is still showing
the devastating effects of the Texas drought. . .
We took this pic exactly one year ago. ..at the beginning of April 2011
and exactly one year later, April 2012. . .
the previous pics were taken on the south end of the lake near the dam.
Six miles north, where the Thousand Trails RV Park is in Lakehills, TX
the lake bed is so dry. . .the cows are grazing on it.
That’s the Medina River you see in the center of the pic. . .
last year, Dave caught about a 3 lb catfish,
from the bluff where he is now standing to take this pic. . .
It’s gonna take a lot of rain north of here to fill all this back up. . .
The fabulous thing about this park is the wildlife. . .
Texas jack rabbit in motion. . .
a mama hummingbird on her nest. . .the nest was about the size of a ping pong ball. . .
this pic is taken with an 800 zoom lens. . .could never have gotten it without that lens.
the aerial acrobatics of the scissor tailed flycatchers were amazing. . .
and so was Mama flycatchers nest building abilities. . .
Both weekends that we were at San Antonio,
we attended services at Hope Center,
where Nathan Scoggins is doing an incredible job as the pastor. . .
on Easter Sunday, the artist rendered this painting
as Rev. Scoggins brought the message
“A Portrait of Love”
While we were at Lake Medina, we also managed
to get our RV washed and waxed. . .
which makes me a very happy camper!
Next we are off to visit Dave’s Aunt and Uncle in Granbury TX. . .
