Today was mostly a travel and resupply day. We were beginning to run low on groceries.
We drove through quite a bit of Texas on April 21.
We drove in a Northeasterly direction which took us through a lot of very lightly populated areas. We started out at Pedernales Falls State Park which is near Johnson City and drove up through Llano and Brady.
We stopped at a great little shady, tree covered rest stop between Brady and Eden. There were a couple of picnic tables under great oak trees. It was a god thing we pulled in when we did, because another family pulled in while we were setting up lunch. About five minutes after they set up, another person stopped for lunch, too. She sat in the grass on a yoga mat and ate her lunch. There aren’t a lot of places to buy lunch in this area, so the rest stop was perfect.
We did a little shopping in San Angelo. It is a reasonable sized town with a Wal-Mart and decent prices for diesel. We stopped for the night at the campground in Lake Colorado City State Park. It was pretty vacant which is a good thing.
I’m glad it wasn’t too hot, because there is very little cover overall. It was just a bit buggy, sticky and warm. We took a walk around the campground, but it started to sprinkle, so we headed back to the RV. There were bunnies everywhere.
We had kind of a damp dinner and an early bedtime.
