... small. It has a "beach" entrance with steps. I stuck my toe in and it was a little chilly, so no swimming tonight :) The owners are very nice and friendly. There are two other buildings, one houses a small common room, the restrooms and laundry. There are several other RVs here, mostly trailers and 5ers. It is fairly close to some of this areas old towns, so if one wanted to visit some of Texas history, it would be a good place to stay. It honors ...
... rancher who is a handy metal worker, he has made some
amazing spurs, bits and knives. He managed to fit Lisa's spurs

(the Texas version of KFC but ice cream focused) was a great place to
catch up with emails and blogs while Pauline attacked the Laundrette
and then we went on the mission of a Walmart shop. Back at the camp
site, we sorted kit for the next day before whizzing off to the
ranchers house for a heavenly hot shower and burgers and Texas hash
to die for! Now that is how a rest day should be!

the lead rope with it using baler twine so the horses could eat
happily all around them without getting caught up in the ropes. The
rancher and his wife came out to visit us and very kindly offered us

feed and head collars, after much running, swearing and shouting of
location points we rounded up the crew and Lisa and I sneaked another
bareback ride on Lizard and Ranger. Hopefully tomorrow will prove to
be less eventful!
