Full Time RV Travel–Brackenridge on Lake Texana was a Wonderful Experience

I love the water in any form. . .even sitting by a swimming pool or fountain makes me happy. . .
chair
so sitting at the water’s edge at Lake Texana was just perfect. . .how much more relaxing can you get?

The wind would blow so hard that the lake would
have whitecaps, and waves. . .so I would sit out there,
pretend I was at the beach. . .no salt, no sand. . .
heavenly!

Beautiful Butterflies
and of course you know I’m going to chase down and photograph any butterfly that I see. . .

but, alas, all good things must end. . .
Day Trip - Lake Texana to Lake Steinhagen
so Friday morning, we loaded up, and headed out through Houston, which would supposedly cut an hour off of our travel time. . .what were we thinking?  Traffic. . . cars cutting in front of ya at 65 mph. . .changing lanes to make sure you stay on the right freeway. . .grrrrrr. 

We lived, and drove in Houston traffic for 30 years.  I didn’t think a thing about driving across town to take a class. . .but pulling  a rig is a whole different ballgame. . .but survive we did . . .
