The Rains Came

This past Spring, we had a lovely time traveling through southwest Louisiana, southeast Texas, then back home through the gorgeous Hill Country.  We made it home just in time to avoid being caught in one of the worst floods in Texas history.

This time, we got caught.  But just barely.  While the area several miles south of us was deluged with as much as 18 inches of rain in 36 hours, we only received about 6 inches at Georgetown Lake.  And, high on a ridge overlooking the lake at Cedar Breaks Campground, we were never in any danger of flooding.

On the way to Georgetown, we had to stop at the Koffee Kup in Hico for lunch.  And PIE!  This is the Black Forest Pie.  Yum!

These are both views from our campsite, before the rain.  The lake actually rose 3 feet after the rain.

Happy little wildflowers at our campsite.

Of course the Cowboy played golf.  You know he loves an audience, so I'm sure he was glad these deer were here to watch him play.

This is a picture of our campsite from the lake.  That's our white 5th wheel.

Last Spring we stayed at the Jim Hogg Campground.  We could see it across the lake from Cedar Breaks.  I took this photo from our campsite at Cedar Breaks.

Yesterday we moved about a hundred miles down the road to Lake Somerville, near Brenham.  It's very pretty here, and heavily populated with deer.  Guess this little guy didn't want his picture taken.

But these guys were a lot friendlier.  

This one looks like he's telling Cowboy hello.  

Looks like more rain is headed this way.  We appreciate any and all prayers!
