The creek was all dried up, why don't these RV park owners update their websites. It is really aggravating when they promote a feature of the park - that is not there anymore.
I drove Hwy 281 South all the way thru Texas, it is not my favorite road to drive on. It needs a lot of work, I saw some areas of repaving, but they are far from done.
This morning I visited Blanco State Park, also on Hwy 281. I should have stayed there last nite, I did not know I was so close. I did not have a large Texas map, I only have a road atlas, and it does not show a lot of detail. I did not see any tourist areas along the way to pick up a map. I asked at the State Park and they did not have any maps, either. At the State Park, I did pick up a guide to all of the State Parks in Texas, I will be staying at some of these parks after my family vacation in South Padre.

The Blanco River is very clear and clean
I have a harness & leash for KitKat
but she fights to get out of it.
I had to keep her in the carrier
when we sat outside at the park.
Today, I am staying in an RV Park/Mobile Home park near my son-in-laws family's house. I can't park in their driveway because I would have no way to turn on the air conditioner, and with temps nearing 100, I need to keep the coach cool because KitKat is staying in the coach when I am out with family.
When we come back from South Padre, I will spend another one or two days in San Antonio so that I can go to the Riverwalk and Alamo and all of the touristy things.
Tomorrow morning we will drive down to South Padre and stay at the beach for 5 days.
Are there any tricks to getting a GPS to find an address on the frontage road of a highway when the business does not supply a regular address? I wanted to go to Camping World in New Braunfels, TX after leaving Blanco State Park. I had written down directions from Yahoo Maps, but its hard to read these directions while driving. I had memorized some of the key points in the directions. My GPS took me in the same general area, but then I got to a road that had a sign that said clearance 11'5'' - too close for comfort - my coach is not quite that tall but I didn't want to go that way. I pulled over into a parking lot and reprogrammed my GPS to go to the RV Park instead.
