Where We Be
|Month in Kerrville, Texas (April 2008)
|Stonehenge II on the outskirts of Ingram. You never know what you're going to find next in Texas!
|Pleasing view of the Guadalupe River near Ingram
|The Community Center at Johnson Creek RV Resort feels like a well-kept home
|Johnson Creek from the elevated patio at the Community Center
|...And a comfortable log-framed bed and living area
|But inside it's nice...We have a small kitchen...
|Yes, we're living in a warehouse! Doesn't look like much from the outside, does it?
|A pretty stretch of Johnson Creek right near the RV park
|Picturesque cascade near Ingram
|The real Stonehenge is still on our list!
|The covered patio overlooking Johnson Creek -- our favorite place to relax with a glass of wine in the afternoon
|Johnson Creek RV Resort is an unusual combination -- half RV park and half pecan grove
We found our home for the month of April at Johnson Creek
RV Resort in Ingram, about eight miles west of Kerrville. The
yellow warehouse-like building doesn't look like much from
the outside, but inside it's quite comfortable, with a log-frame
bed, kitchen, and amenities like Wi-Fi, cable, and electricity
all included. The grounds are covered with pecan trees, and
the classy Community Center looks like a well-kept home.
The views of Johnson Creek from the Community Center's
elevated patio are beautiful. Our favorite afternoon activity is
sitting on the patio enjoying a glass of wine while chatting
with the friendly folks staying here. Most are full-time RV'ers.
We kept busy touring the Hill Country -- at its prettiest in April
when the bluebonnets bloom and the trees turn green with
new growth. We went for hikes in three different state parks:
Enchanted Rock, Guadalupe River, and Pedernales. We
threw back beers in the ultra-small town of Luckenbach (Pop.
3), had amazing barbecue at Cooper's in Llano, visited LBJ's
"Texas White House," toured Sauer-Beckmann Living History
Farm, saw the Admiral Nimitz Museum of the Pacific War in
Fredericksburg, and went kayaking at Zilker Park in Austin.
