Menard to Kerrville, TX

After a great overnight in a wonderful county park in Menard, TX, we hit the road for our final (for now) destination in Kerrville. We arrived before lunch. At the park registration we met another refugee from California seeking asylum in Texas. They are from Ventura County and have been working on relocating since May. These pictures are from the County RV Park in Menard.

All set up for the next two weeks here at By The River Campground and RV Park in Kerrville, TX. Larry got on the local NET last evening (W3XO); he was invited to join a group of local hams for coffee at MacDonalds on Wednesday morning. It appears that hams the world over are alike!

This is a wonderful park. Some shade, but lots of exploring within the park itself. Sue too Buddy for several walks including both islands and along the river (Guadalupe). Buddy chased a duck down to the river, didn’t catch it.

We will be hear for about two weeks looking around. We may stay longer, but we don’t know yet. We are working on getting all our location information changed. We will be renting a mailbox today and working on driver license and vehicle registration in the next day or two.

Going to see the grandkids on Friday, Samantha is having a birthday party (4 years old). It will be nice to see San Antonio again and check out the country between here and there. Coming in to Kerrville we noticed how nice the hill country on Hwy 83 north of I-10 is; a lot of mesquite and oak covered hills; creeks and rivers).

Thanks for following, and stay tuned for more of our Grand Adventure!
