A few days at Lake Georgetown

January 1-7:

On January 1st we loaded up the Duchess and moved from the LaHacienda RV Resort to the Jim Hogg COE Park on Lake Georgetown. While on our way we stopped and ate breakfast at Jardin Corona's restaurant with a number of friends who we had celebrated the arrival of the new year the night before. We have stayed at Lake Georgetown a number of times before at the Cedar Breaks COE Park on the south side of the lake, but this was the first time that we stayed on the north side of the lake. We were staying in the area to have the motorhome's annual maintenance performed along with the state inspection. The site we were able to get was on the lake with a covered picnic table.

There were a number of people in the park over the week-end but by Monday afternoon the majority of them had left. Most of the remaining RV'ers were either full-timers or snowbirds. On Tuesday we had lunch with Connie's cousins, Betty and her brother Allen Frederickson and his wife Scooter, who live in Sun City Georgetown which is a 55+ Del Webb retirement community located close to Lake Georgetown.

One night it was cold enough that we had a small fire in the firepit located near our site. We gathered some wood that had washed up on the shore of the lake and used it for our fire.The wood was still a little damp, so it took some work to actually get a fire going.

We originally were going to leave on Wednesday, but the weather forecast called for rain so we delayed our departure until Thursday. It did rain Wednesday afternoon and evening, so I was glad we waited. I don't like driving in the rain unless I have to.

On Thursday morning we left the park and made the trip south to the Pioneer Beach RV Resort in Port Aransas where we will be for two weeks.
