THURSDAY

This morning I was on my way to Stonewall by a quarter to 11:00 and was settled in my site by about 12:30. Val White, Nancy Riley, James Smith and I (all residents of Pecan Grove RV Park) walked across the highway to a little diner for lunch.

Tonight we had a good potluck dinner and played table games afterward.

FRIDAY

This afternoon several of us were sitting on the club house porch when a Winter Texan, Annette Graham, came by with her macaw “Calypso” to visit with us. He is a beautiful bird. She told us that he is quite talkative inside their rig but that he will not talk around strangers. Tonight we had dinner at Andy’s Steak and Seafood Restaurant in Fredericksburg.

SATURDAY

This morning Nancy Riley, James Smith, his dog Sophie and I went to the LBJ Ranch State and National Park, where we walked on the nature trail from the visitor center to the Sauer-Beckmann Living History Farm. The weather was cool so the walk was quite pleasant. Sophie stayed very busy exploring everything.

In the parking lot we saw an unusual RV from Africa. It was built on a Toyota four-wheel drive diesel. On the left side was painted a large heart with an arrow in it and the words, “Le Cap Bordeaux” and below it what was probably owner’s name and home town, Gnangwessy Gregoire, Godomey (Benin). On the right side there was a large snail at the top and the words, “La Cagoville” (the rig’s name perhaps). I wish we could have met the owners. I’m sure they would have had some interesting tales to tell.
