last Friday we pulled into Austin TX. . .
well really. . .Round Rock TX, named after this round rock in Brushy Creek,
which had become a landmark along the Chisholm Trail during cattle drive days. . .
you know. . .as in, cross the creek at the Round Rock. . .LOL!
Supposedly, the wagon grooves can still be see in the bedrock of the creek. . .
we have never been when the creek is down low enough, but would love to see those!
the little park where the “round rock” is located is a lovely place for a picnic. . .
the historic downtown area is also worth exploring. . .
and the next town over. . .Georgetown. . .is beautiful as well. . .
but here is the #1 reason for our stop. . .an adorable “great”. . .Mr Jaden!
His Mommy just happens to be my #1 niece, as in the first born. . .
Boy, are we ever having a blast with our brother’s and sister’s grands. . .so much fun!
Dave’s #1 niece just happens to live in the Austin area too. . .
we were so happy to stop by and get our hugs from her. . .
We visited with a family friend. . .
had lunch with church friends. . .
had Texas BBQ at the Salt Lick. . .highly recommend. . .
we’ve stayed in so many different RV Parks in the Austin area. . .
but we always seem to return to The Old Settler’s Park in Round Rock. . .
FHU – 50A – pull through – $23. . .quiet and convenient. . .
nothing spectacular, but we love it!
right across the street from Dell Diamond. . .home of the Texas Rangers Farm Team. . .
and then on Monday morning, we made tracks for our favorite Thousand Trails Park
on the Colorado River in Columbus Texas. . .
Debi and Ed Hurlburt rolled in right behind us. . .
eating, visiting, and watching the deer. . .that’s what we’ve been doing all week. . .
it’s been great!
See you next time in Conroe. . .
