I thought I'd share another little trip in Kiki with you.
Now Texas is a very big state and we keep exploring campgrounds.
In my last post we had traveled to San Angelo and this was the last leg of that trip.
If you're familiar with the Texas Hill Country, you know how pretty it can be.
We decided to take Kiki to Kerrville and found this nice park ~ the Guadalupe River RV Resort.
We stayed two nights and with our Good Sam's discount it cost around $35 a night with electricity, water, sewer, wifi and cable.
There goes Mr. Precious walking into the entrance.
Again, it was HOT here!
This was a very nice campground. So clean and all kinds on amenities.
There were two swimming pools, a hot tub, little store, club house and laundry facilities.
This was the first time I had ever used the laundry at a campground and it was quite fun.
Doesn't take much to humor me. Well, I didn't bring any laundry detergent but the store sold little 'one load' boxes and dryer sheets for .99 a box. It cost $1.25 to wash and $1.25 to dry. I'm thinking I should start saving my little quarters to take along on our trips.
Our spot was #34 underneath the oak trees. While Mr. Precious is setting up, let me take you on a little tour. It is my job after all to snap pictures. :)
There were nice furnished cabins you could rent and a lovely little playground
Down the hill from our spot were wonderful walking trails and little pieces of the Guadalupe River.
This is the upper river and it's smaller and swampier looking.
This snap was pretty but really dirty looking so I enhanced the colors for you.
Little squirrels were everywhere.
Chloe Dawn, she's fuzzy here because she wouldn't stand still, loved taking walks down by the river exploring. She is a city girl, after all! :)
I have to tell you, the one time I didn't take my camera with me I saw a herd of deer!
Honey, I'm telling you! There was a buck with antlers at least two feet high and mamas and babies!
They saw me coming and they froze with their tall necks in the air. Then they started to run off to cross the river. As they ran single file, I counted 20! I couldn't believe it and I'm still kicking myself for not taking my camera! You live and learn.
Well, looks like Mr. Precious has us all set up.
We just bought these little lawn chairs at WalMart and were so excited to get to use them.
So excited, we forgot to cut the tags off! ;)
We did sit out in the mornings under the trees and watch the squirrels and it was quite nice.
Another first for me! I had never used the gas burners in Kiki's kitchen before and this time I bit the bullet and cooked away. I tried to cook as much as I could and see what all I could do.
There is no oven but we have a microwave to heat stuff up in. As you can see, this was breakfast and I was frying up those little link sausages again. They just taste so good in the mornings. We don't do this at home so it's a treat to us. I scrambled eggs. I brought a pan big enough so I could boil some corn. It's so good right now. I did some preparing at home. I shucked and broke the ears in half and put them in zip lock bags so I would just have to toss them in the water to boil. I washed and cut up lettuce and put it in a zip lock too. I had heard about the germs with the precut lettuce in bags.
The only thing I'm missing is lots of ice. I drink tea or Dr. Pepper all day and I love ice.
It's almost dark and Mr. Precious walked outside and took a few snaps. That's the window over the kitchen area and the pink is me!
I'm talking small here.
Oh, I wanted to tell you something we will never do again. As you know, Kiki is 'our wheels'. If we need to leave the camp we have to unhook everything and drive where ever. Well, I had cooked as I told you and we were running out of the real food. Mr. Precious had seen a busy little restaurant across the highway from the campground and said we could just cross the highway, Interstate 10.
We got out there and cars were whizzing by at 70 to 80 miles an hour. Mr. Precious is a runner but I can't run! I have arthritis in my knees. So we make it to the turn lane and cars are whizzing by us now on both sides! You talk about scary. I was praying my tiny head off for God to protect us. He did, we ate, it was good and we crossed the interstate to get back to the RV campgrounds. No, no Nannette! Never again will we cross an interstate!
Til next time,
