Later Sunset

This morning I was up early because I had two appointments for RV-related repairs. First, I stopped at the Discount Tire store in Round Rock to have my tires checked and to see what was causing vibrations at slow speeds. They balanced all six tires. Another problem was that the right rear outside dual tire was flat due to a damaged stem, so they installed a new stem. They didn’t charge me for any of this work. I’m really sold on this company!

From there I drove on up to Georgetown to Crestview RV to have my brakes repaired and a new sensor installed on my jacks. The sensor had been ordered from the factory but had not come in, so that job is still on hold. The real blow to my budget will be from the brake repairs. They had to order several parts. I will have to go back on Monday in hopes of getting both repair jobs done. If the sensor has not arrived by then, I’ll just wait till some other time to have the jacks repaired. I have to be back in Austin for my gall bladder surgery on Tuesday.

Ann Poole met me at Crestview and brought her Rummikub game. We played a few games while I waited to learn what was needed. Then we went to lunch at the Monument Café in Georgetown. The food and service were very good. Attached to the café is a biergarten and a locally-grown food shop, which also sells candles, soaps and such.

After lunch we went back to Crestview to get my RV. I followed her to Cedar Breaks Park west of Georgetown. It is a nice Corps of Engineers park with, as might be expected, lots of cedar trees. My space is next to Ann’s. We had our dinner in her rig because she has more room. Then we played some more Rummikub games. Tomorrow we will head to Llano for our Cen-Tex campout.

As it was getting close to sundown, I just had to go out to take pictures. I discovered, to my chagrin, that the battery in my camera had run down so I used my Jitterbug phone. It takes better photos than I had expected, though, so it wasn’t a great loss at least.
