|Headed out of Del Rio on Hwy 377 north to Junction, TX where we stayed at N. Llano River RV Park, one of our favorite parks. Nice drive through the countryside of Texas, but noticed all the flood warnings on this highway in case of heavy rain. We didn't think much of it at the time, but.....
We planned a 10 day stay in Junction where we could eat at our favorite BBQ place, Lum's and of course the Donut Palace. Best homemade donuts! Weather was beautiful and we took many long walks. The owner of this park is developing another RV park on the South Llano River on the other side of Junction. The managers of the park we stay in, Joe & Sharon will also manage the new park. When we were here last year, Joe had told us that they planned to open the new park in April 2015. When we arrived this year, the park is still not open. The city had stepped in and stopped construction. After months of "negotiating", the county stepped in and said the park is actually in the county not city. Long story short, they have opened the park now as of March 7, 2016. Joe and Sharon let us take a look at the park before it's opening! It will be a great addition to Junction.
One day found us traveling through the Hill Country to Fredericksburg, hometown of Admiral Nimitz of WWII fame. It was time for our truck to have some servicing so we took it to Chevy dealer (Bob Price Chevrolet, GMC, Buick) in Fredericksburg. It gave us a chance to look at all the model of cars we are interested in purchasing when we return home.
After a delicious lunch at the Fredericksburg Brewery, we drove out to Luckenbach, TX. Not much to see, but quaint little place and it is home to the Mud Dauber Festival in March and famous place of Waylon Jenning's song.
One night of bad weather here, but other than that a great stay and met some very nice people, several couples from the state of Washington. On a sad note, the ducks are gone from this park. For the past four years, we had enjoyed watching them come and go down to the river. Time marches on and so have they!
