San Marcos, Texas

Here we are... sitting in the rain... in Texas
Where did the Sun go?

We moved from Kerrville to San Marcos on Thursday.
We are staying at Pecan Park.

Another good choice...
It's so hard to blindly choose a place to stay in this RV life.  That's why I enjoy reading blogs of fellow RVers to see and hear firsthand what a place is REALLY like.
Otherwise, its sorta like Forest Gump's Momma's words...
RV Parks are like a box of chocolates...
                          you never know what yer gonna get!

This place is tucked away so it is quiet, and there is space enough between sites.
It is free of highway noise, yet we are less than 3 miles from shopping
(even good ole Walmart Superstore)

Yesterday, we met with RV friends, Alan and Phyllis.  We met at Sugarite Canyon, NM 2 years ago, then met up again in San Antonio, then by coincidence met up in Custer, SD... and now again here!

When we left the restaurant, it was pouring outside...
so we rented a movie and went home to cuddle up and listen to the rain on the roof.

During the night, we had a horrendous downpour with blasting thunder and lightning!
It seemed to go on all night!
I like rain on the roof of the wheel house... but this was TOO much!

Today, we were going to Gruene for Market Days, but there was more rain with wind in the forecast...
So we opted for postponing Gruene Market Days until tomorrow,
and replacing it with a visit to the huge Outlet Malls here in San Marcos.

We weren't like the throngs of shoppers at the Outlet Malls.
We were just there to stroll the sidewalks.  Actually... the two outlet malls are so huge,
we got a good walk in, passing by stores and shoppers.

I watch shoppers come out with their arms loaded with bags full of their purchases from stores like Prada and Nieman Marcus, and I think...
This is SO not us!
We don't want stuff!

Anytime I am in a store, I remember all the STUFF we got rid of.
I NEVER wanted to be loaded down with STUFF again.

After 3 hours walking the sidewalks of the two outlet malls,  we left very happy,
 with a zippered hoodie sweatshirt for $7 and a calendar for $1
not bad, eh?

The night before we left Triple-T RV Resort
We got together with John and Janie.
We had a great time playing games together.

Its great making new friends all over the States.

Maybe someday somewhere we will meet YOU!

    Many diseases are caused when our body is not in the correct balance.

    Nowadays, maintaining a balance with our busy lifestyles can be quite challenging. The quality of foods, a variety of diets and supplements can be overwhelming.

    What we need first and foremost is a balanced diet that is more alkaline than acidic. That way our organs will function properly, and our skeletal health will remain strong.

    Nature has provided us with a humble little seed, the quinoa, which is a powerhouse of nutrients. Queens Quinoa- Grain & Flour is the first naturally grown grain that can help us to maintain an excellent health.
