Hello....

How are you?

We have settled in for a bit here in the Big State of Texas.
This is my first time here in this state and I have to say I am
pleasantly surprised.  We were planing on staying near Houston area when
some proud Texans we met on the road informed us that we must stay in
Hill Country.  And I am glad we took their advice.


 This shot is from right here in the RV park that we are staying at in
Kerrville, TX.  Since we have been here the grass has yellowed a bit but
I sure am glad we got here before that happened. 



While we were here in Texas we decided it would be the perfect time to
catch a cruise. No flight expense if you know what I mean. 



We had lots of fun playing with these little fella's.
They were on our stop in Honduras. 
Usually I feel bad about the caged animals, but these monkeys were
not in cages they roamed free in the jungle but would come in for the free snacks the
guide would give them.  Win Win for all. 



 Back in Texas we took a day trip over to San Antonio.
WOW..  is all I could say.  We had so much fun strolling along the river walk.



Another shot of the River Walk..



And of course you can't come to San Antonio 
without visiting the Alamo.



The one thing I can say about Texas is that the folks here in Texas
are about as Proud of their state than anywhere we have been so far.
They fly their Texas flag everywhere..  
Kinda cool to see...


We are only here in Texas for another week and a half.
We are headed back to Vegas to celebrate Christmas with our Families.

I do hope everyone has a
Happy Thanksgiving.

Till next time my friends. 

Hugs~

Thanks for sharing your recent travels...it's always so great to see where you've been and what you have been up to. Beautiful photos , as always; love the monkey. When I think of Texas ( not ever having been there ) I always think of "cowboys" and dusty plains.lol. Your beautiful park in Kerrville is not what I expected. Guess Texas is a pretty big place ! Glad to hear you are spending Christmas with your families, may it be blessed and beautiful. Safe travels. xx

I've never been to Texas...I even have extended family (step brothers) that live there. But I'm stopping for a night as I fly to Nicaragua in January so I'll get to see a wee bit.

Hello dear Linda, it looks like you're having a wonderful time in Texas. Such a beautiful scenery seen from the RV park. And how wonderful that you have been on a cruise south! Beautiful photos, I love the little birdie posing for the camera :) Wishing you a wonderful time with your family and sending you big hugs, xx

Sounds like a lovely place to settle in for a while. Hopefully the winter won't be bone chilling cold there like it is in so many places. As always I enjoyed your post and photos.

yyam said...

Glad you are having fun! Thanks for sharing those spectacular views of your travels!

Gail Dixon said...

Wise choice to choose The Hill Country over Houston. The deer should be plentiful in Kerrville right now. You can see them grazing everywhere. Hope you have safe travels to Vegas and wish you a very Merry Christmas!

Sylvia said...

Just happened to stop by and see that you had posted, Linda. So glad we got to meet for lunch, you and Bruce are such a lovely couple, I enjoyed the visit! Have a safe trip home and thanks for driving to Round Rock to visit!

So glad you spent a grand time in my home state. And you are right about the Texans being very proud of their state!! Great images and hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful and that your holidays are filled with joy!!
