Still At South Llano River State Park



It’s been a great week here, very relaxing and quiet. Other than a daily 3 or 4 mile hike, the rest of our time has been spent reading or on the computer.

We’ve seen lots of birds,



and beautiful flowers.




We were a bit apprehensive about being here over the weekend since a big group of Little Princesses (girsl age 4 to 4th grade) and their dads were coming, but they were very well behaved and we even got to watch their procession to the council fire ceremony last night, right in front of our site. This is a program through the YMCA which used to be called Indian Guides/Indian Princesses, but to be more politically correct they have changed to the name to the Y-Father-Child Program. Just doesn’t have the same ring to it, but they all appeared to be having fun and really didn’t disrupt the campground.


We also both recently finished reading a great book for all you animal lovers out there, Homer's Odyssey: A Fearless Feline Tale, or How I Learned About Love and Life with a Blind Wonder Cat. It’s actually a story about a cat with no eyes, but he sure doesn’t seem to know it. I won’t spoil anything by telling you the cat is still alive and well, so it’s not one of those animal books that will leave you in tears like most of them seem to. Who knows, now our next cat may be a blind one. There are plenty of them out there looking for homes. Check this out if you’re interested. Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary Inc. If we were anywhere near North Carolina I’d be heading there to volunteer.

Tomorrow we’re moving on to San Angelo State Park, We might just get out of Texas this week.


  1. San Angelo State Park...another of our favorites. We couldn't have a fire while we were there...too dry. We had a huge site. Wait to you see how low the water is. Be sure to check out Fort Concho. Really interesting. The Cactus Hotel is pretty nice also. Here is the link to one of our blogs. You can see one of the animals that will be watching you. Enjoy your stay.

  2. I see you are having a great time in South Llano. I just finished a great dog book called "Amazing Gracie". I won't go into detail but a really good book.

  3. San Angelo SP has some great bike riding at it. Enjoy.

  4. Makes me a bit sad that you'll be leaving Texas this week. Wish I could have met you! Well, maybe next time. Thanks (to Jimbo too) for the leads on the books.
