Peace and Relaxation

First of all—Butterbean—thank you so much for the invitation—we are kind of on a schedule for getting to Aransas Pass.  Michael starts work early December and he wanted time to settle in and get the lay of the land so to speak.  We promise to stop by the next time we are in your area, our travel path took us to the east of you this time. 

Tonight we have landed a little earlier than last night—about 5pm we rolled into Lake Medina RV Resort near Bandera, TX.  We have stayed here twice in the past and just love this place.  It is difficult to find—you must drive through a nice subdivision, up and down some really serious hills before topping out at the resort.  It sits on Lake Medina, a lake used for irrigation purposes and with the Texas drought—it is once again almost dry.  The RV resort is owned by a ranching family and this land has been in the same family for over 100 years.  The young couple, Greg and Gina, who own this resort are just the nicest people as are the winter residents.  When we first came here about 4 years ago the people welcomed us with open arms.  We had a motorcycle at the time and the riding gang had Michael out every time they went.  This is where I learned to quilt—there is a woman, Carolyn, who is a perfectionist quilter—she taught me the basics that winter and she taught me to love quilt shops!

We left Wellington, TX about 9am this morning, after yesterday’s long drive, neither of us was in any hurry this morning.  The wind buffeted us about today and the temps were warm.  I have on my flip flops for the first time!! 

Tomorrow I will take some photos—of this beautiful park and the dry lake! Smile


  1. glad you landed safely tonight! Enjoy your stay, even if it is just an overnighter!

  2. Flip-flops.......I'm jealous, as I sit in my fur lined slippers. Glad to hear your travels went smoother today.

  3. You've only been quilting four years?? That is a real shock to me. :O

  4. You are in some pretty country, or it was before the drought. Just a couple hundred more miles and you're there. Hopefully it makes for a short day when you once again get on the road.

  5. Glad to hear your travel has been safe and you missed the big buck! We love the hill country also and visit Kerrville at least once a year. Don't miss the quilt store in Bandera if you have time, it's a nice one. Shorts and t-shirt weather here. Looking forward to your arrival.

  6. How nice for you to find a welcoming place that you know is a good stopover. Will have to mark that one on the map!

  7. Can't wait until I can put on a pair of flip-flops!

  8. You are soon to land at your destination. You made good time too! Flip Flops?....we'll have to wait another month and a bit before we can try those on.

    Howdy Janna & Mike,
    We went to Lake Medina a couple of years ago and all you could see as far as you could see was solid white rock; NO WATER at all!!! Lake Travis was almost as bad then!! Kids in Austin say it has 'some' water in it, now!!
    Well, just come by anytime you're in the vicinity and we'll have a spot for you!! I don't see how you missed us unless you went Googling and just went the 'super-slabs'!! I HATE SUPER-SLABS; IDIOTS DRIVE CRAZY ON THEM!!! I know Mike wants to go 75mph for 600 miles and never stop!!! Poor ol' Pink bus!!!
