Easter with Family at Canyon Lake…


As has been typical of our current Texas hill country tour we only had a short drive to our next location. This time we drove a tad over 21 miles and pulled into site number 12 at Lake Pointe RV Resort. As we mentioned in the last blog the main reason we came here was to see the grandkids who enjoy camping in the RV with us. We have stayed here before and this is one of their favorite parks to be since we can walk to the lake, skip rocks, enjoy the pool, feed the deer, participate in the weekend dollar Blue Bell Ice Cream socials and the like…


This park is a membership park since it is close to Canyon Lake but they accept Passport America and Escapees charging only $15/night for those of us with those types of memberships making this park a bargain for this location. It is one of the friendliest parks we have visited as the neighbors on both sides have been very welcoming.  In fact one neighbor thrilled the kids with a ride in the golf cart down to the lake and back.  He even allowed our eldest (almost 13 year old) drive a short stretch and beep the horn.  Needless to say, the kids were beyond excited!


Once again spring is in the middle of her glorious wildflower showing here in the hill country as saw lots of beautiful bluebonnets, verbenas, prickly poppies and paintbrushes all along our short route. Of course we cannot resist taking a few pictures while they are peaking in the numbers. We also plan to drive up the Guadalupe River Road to enjoy the Spring green vegetation and the beautiful river...

Our son and his family came to visit us on Saturday. We had a great time chatting, hiking and playing with the grandkids. When Easter Sunday rolled around my son and I snuck out early in the morning to assist the Easter Bunny with hiding some eggs. As the kids awoke we all went outside to watch them look high and low for the elusive eggs… except for the one that fell deep into a hollow of a tree (oops). The rest of our relaxing Easter was spent enjoying our family time.

The kids all went back home to San Antonio since their parents must return to  work and the kids have to go back to school. We will enjoy one day here at the park before we travel in the car to see them in San Antonio for a few days on Tuesday… Until then we sure hope enjoy your time on the road of retirement…
