April 8 2011 Fredericksburg Texas Nancy and I have been to Fredericksburg Texas several times, but it has been a few years since we walked the streets.

Fredericksburg is located in the Texas Hill Country, 80 miles west of Austin and about 70 miles north of San Antonio. It is a very small community with a lot of tourist type stores, which include winery’s, wine shops, antique stores along with general merchandise....

Mar 15, 2011 - Nimitz Pacific War Museum

Nancy and I last visited the Nimitz Pacific War Museum about 4 years ago. It was being remodeled and many of the things we saw today were not there at that time. About 2 years ago they finished remodeling and had a grand re-opening. I was in Ohio at that time, but we did make contact with the Amateur Radio Station that was set up to celebrate the opening. We talked for a long time and it turns out the operator at the Museum was a old Navy guy. It was a Sunny day here in Texas so we got up and thought this would be a great time to revisit...

Feb 15, 2011 - Fredericksburg, TX

Arrived in Fredericksburg, Texas on Saturday after a 4-1/2 hour drive from Ft. Stockton. Fredericksburg was founded in 1846 by German settlers & retains a distinctively German feel. At the turn of the century it was a long trip into Fredericksburg for many farm families, so they often built tiny "Sunday houses" in town for use between Saturday shopping & church. The historic buildings are a sight to see. We visited the National Museum of the Pacific War - we only got through a small portion of it - it is hugh - but very interesting....

Dec 31, 2010 - The Little Bull Fighter

We arrived late afternoon Wednesday here in Fredericksburg, TX. There are several proprietary Recreation Vehicle parks in and near the city, but we've chosen a municipal park, Lady Bird Johnson Park. The city doesn't have to make profit for shareholders and has only to pay the park's expenses, so the rate here is about 20% below the other parks; for $25/night we're provided water, electricity, sewer, and 77 channels of cable TV. The city is quite proud of its relationship with Lady Bird and her love of the wildflowers of Texas Hill...

Dec 12, 2010 - Loss of a neighbor

It is with deep regret that I tell those of you that don't already know about the death of one of our neighbors.. Tony Saeli lost his fight for life this morning at 2:00 A.M. All of us that knew him will miss him terribly. When we returned to Town Park this fall Tony told us that he would be gone by Christmas.. Seems that Tony already knew what God had in store for him. Our prayers go out to Diane and the family and we will do everything we can to help her through this sad time... Cards/ memorials can be sent to Diane at: Diane Saeli 3110...

Dec 6, 2010 - LBJ Ranch

We took a ride over to LBJ's Ranch today. This was a lot of fun as the Ranch was hugh and Buck had all sorts of animals to check out on the drive to the ranch house. When we arrived at the ranch house, we found LBJ's plane sitting outside. He called his Air Force One & a Half as it was a smaller jet. There was a great information room that had all sorts of pictures and cars and so forth to check out. There was on picture of LBJ howling with his dog and, if you knew my wife and dog Buck, you would know we have a picture just like it. LBJ...

Dec 3, 2010 - Christmas Bazar and Parade Fredericksburg

What a fun time we had tonite at the Fredericksburg St. Nikolausmarkt which is a traditional German Christmas Market! It was followed by a hoot of a Texas Christmas parade which included everything from decorated tractors and decorated jeeps to decorated llamas and decorated steers... it was really something to see and lasted well over an hour. The Christmas Market had many juried booths of unique handcrafted items from soups to nuts. Kraig bought a bbq accessory that easily turns meat on the bbq and is anxious to use it when we arrive in...

Dec 2, 2010 - Nimitz World War 2 in the Pacific Museum

This is the second time I have been to the Museum as we were here for a few hours a few years ago. They have remodeled it since then and it is one place that everyone should see. The reason I say this as it really shows how terrible a world war is and how many people we owe our freedom too. I spent all afternoon there and didn't see it all. If you take your time and look and read your way through the Museum you have to be moved. There is a Plaza of the Presidents that has plaques showing 10 Presidents that served in the service in world war...

Nov 30, 2010 - Fredericksburg

After an easy 60 mile drive we are now in Fredericksburg. We were surprised to find out that we were lucky to get a camp site for 3 days. As it turns out this is the start of the busy time of the year here. We drove through the town getting to our camp site but, have not gone back yet to check things out. We would like to spend at least a week here so hope to find another RV park that is not full this weekend already.

Nov 16, 2010 - Enchanted Rock State Natural Area

After we left the LBJ Ranch we decided to take a chance and see if we could manage to get to the Enchanted Rock State Natural Area before dark. Well, it wasn't quite dark when we arrived but pretty close. It was impossible to get good pictures. The Enchanted Rock itself is a huge, pink granite exfoliation dome, that rises 425 feet above ground, 1825 feet above sea level, and covers 640 acres. It is one of the largest batholiths (underground rock formation uncovered by erosion) in the United States. The Enchanted Rock State Natural Area is...
