October 27 - Boerne, Texas

Even though we've lived in the motor home for a little over 10 months, we haven't traveled all that much. Until her death on October 11, we were responsible for Jim's mom and all of her care. Most of our time has been spent getting our house in Colorado Springs ready to sell and taking care of Mom in Arlington, Texas. After her funeral services in Childress, Texas, we spent a few days at Cedar Ridge Corps of Engineer Park near Temple, Texas. We enjoyed a restful time relaxing with our friends and doing a little sightseeing, including a drive to Crawford, home of the Texas Whitehouse. We didn't get a glimpse of the president though, other than a picture of him with Laura on a billboard, welcoming us to Crawford!


Below is a picture of Lake Belton, where the Cedar Ridge COE park is located.





Yesterday, Friday, October 26, we drove from Temple, Texas to Boerne, Texas. We are staying at the Top of the Hill RV Resort, just off Interstate 10, a little ways outside Boerne. It is on top of a hill, with beautiful vistas all around us. We'll be here for 12 nights, so we'll have the opportunity to explore the Texas Hill Country.



Our drive from Temple to Boerne was pretty uneventful, except for an inconsiderate so and so who was pulling a Montana 5th Wheel. He must have been in a very big hurry, since he shot past us just as the road narrowed from 2 lanes to 1. Luckily, Jim was able to maintain control of the motor home, but it sure could have had a bad ending. Is it my imagination, or are people really getting more rude on the road?



We arrived at Top of the Hill RV Resort around 3:00 p.m and were escorted to our site. We have a a panoramic view from the southwest around to the northeast. There aren't any trees near us, so we will have a lot of sun here. We chose to come to Boerne after hearing about the area from several people. After we studied the map, we decided this is a good central location from which to explore the Hill Country. We like to take pictures of sunsets, so I'll close with this shot from just outside our rig.
