Yesterday, we received a comment from a friend who welcomed us for arriving “deep in the heart of Texas”. Mary and her husband, Greg, sailed with us across the South Atlantic, the most stressful ocean crossing Mary Margaret and I experienced in our circumnavigation due to the numerous equipment failures that occurred. Despite that stressful crossing, Mary and Greg are still determined to follow their dream of buying a sailboat and living the cruiser’s life. Her comment inspired the title of today’s blog.
Today, we continued our journey east by driving just a couple of hours before arriving in Kerrville, Texas. It is located in the Hill Country of Texas and is where the Kerrville-Schreiner City Park is located. We will be staying here for the next 12 days. It will be our base to explore Austin (about 2 hours to the east) and San Antonio (about an hour to the south). It will also allow us time to explore the local sights.
Our park is situated right along the Guadalupe River and it provides us with 50-amp electrical service, water hookup and… even a sewer hookup! Whoo Hoo! It is only the second site we have been to that provides site specific sewer disposal. This is a big deal when one is spending some time at a park since every RV has limited black and grey water holding capacity. We have 80 gallon holding tanks for both types of water. We usually have to marshal our use of our washing machine and dish washer along with our black water generation, to prevented overflowing these holding tanks. Thus, we can just sit tight on our site and do not have to go through the hassle of bundling up LeuC, moving her to the nearest sump dump location, discharging our dirty waters, returning to our site and resetting up LeuC. This is a real luxury.
In addition to the services our site provides to us, the park itself is situated in a beautiful setting. The river is right next door and is wonderful to behold. The photos posted below show you what I mean.
