The short-term workamping situation was not working out quite as we had expected, so we made the decision to leave that RV Park and continue our travels west. We weren’t quite done exploring the Hill Country, though, so we didn’t want to move too far.
We found the Junction North Llano River RV Park, about 80 miles away, and made that our destination. We packed up this morning and made our departure without incident. It was an easy drive west on I-10 and we arrived in Junction by 11:30. The RV Park was easy to find, and we got checked in and set up on site #46.
Our site is a nice long, level pull-thru with a covered patio. When we left Boerne this morning, it was cool and overcast, but by the time we got set up here, the clouds were gone and it had warmed up considerably.
Nicolas, Tom and I took Casey for a walk around the campground, and along the river.
She hasn’t had a swim in quite a while, so we let her go in the river and chase some sticks.
She loved getting cooled off, and was happy to be in the water!
We continued our walk, noticing all of the pecan trees around the park.
After taking Casey back to the RV, and brushing all of the burrs out of her fur, Nicolas and I grabbed a ziplock bag and went out to pick some pecans. He decided that he wanted to make fudge, so we needed quite a few!
Once we had picked our pecans, we had to break them open with rocks – carefully so that we didn’t mash the pecan meat!
We ended up with a decent bowl of pecans to use in our fudge.
After dinner – which we were finally able to enjoy outside – I made a batch of brown sugar fudge (didn’t have cocoa!!) . . . it’s still cooling, but it looks pretty good!
I think we’re going to enjoy our few days here! It’s a nice little RV Park, very quiet, and down in a valley so we’re protected from the Hill Country winds.
