Medina Lake

It’s been 4 days since we arrived at Thousand Trails Medina Lake in Lakehills, TX. There has been a couple days of rain but we have been able to get out for walks everyday but one. This is a large and very pretty park with an amazing amount of deer. The deer don’t walk right up to you but are obviously used to humans. They aren’t real excited about Cheyenne but she sure likes watching them!

One interesting thing that has been happening since we have been here…the trailer and pickup are under attack by a Cardinal! It evidently sees it’s reflection in the windows and keeps flying into them trying to attack the “other” male Cardinal it sees. Doesn’t seem to hurt it at all. We thought it would eventually quit but it hasn’t so today Dave put up our outdoor window covers. It still attacks the mirrors on the pickup but at least we don’t have to listen to it thump into the trailer now!

It was fun to see new territory on our way to Texas. Where we are staying is different than I had pictured, a lot more trees. Looking forward to going in to San Antonio and seeing a little more of Texas!

Thank you, it's always nice to hear someone is enjoying our blog. Sharing our travels is fun, of course the traveling is really fun! :o) That cardinal still attacks some of the windows...Dave thinks we should leave some Tylenol out for it...
