Yet another beautiful day in the Texas Hill Country. We woke to temps in the upper 40's but it quickly warmed with the sun shining brightly. We had plans to go to to a late lunch with some new friends here in the Cottonwood Creek RV Park, Dale and Betty Vaughn. They are farmers from the town of Alliance in the panhandle of Nebraska. They have been coming to this park for the past three years and are very familiar with the area.
We had time to kill before our excursion, so we took advantage of the warm sun and gave Maggie and Rico a bath (shower) from the service compartment of our rig. Our rig (fifth wheel) has a service compartment that contains a hose, with a hot and cold spicket. Our water hookups and cable/ satellite are also in the compartment. Anyway, it makes it nice to be able to adjust the temperature of the water when giving the dogs a bath.
Dale and Betty were ready to go sometime after about 12:30. To be honest in this lifestyle, I loose all track of time and rarely look at my watch. Heck, I'm lucky if I remember what day of the week it is. But I know it's not just me. I was talking to another park guest the other day whom thought it was Saturday when it was actually Thursday!
Anyway, we decided to go to Nutty Brown Cafe and Amphitheater just out side of Dripping Springs. It was recommended by a friend of Dale and Betty's.
They serve country style cuisine. I had the chicken fried chicken and it was excellent. I'm sure we all enjoyed our meals. The restaurant hosts country music artists from time to time. There is an outside amphitheater in the back of the restaurant and lots of outdoor seating. We checked it out and then we were ready to leave having satisfied our appetites.
On the way back home we took a side road, Creek Road which runs along the Onion Creek. It has running water this year but in the recent years past it was dry from draught.
We see a lot of these little concrete dams in the creeks and rivers around here. In fact there are small little dams in the Cottonwood Creek here in the park.
Along Creek Road are a number of farms. We enjoy stopping to take a look at the Longhorns along the side of the roads. We got out to get closer and take pictures of the few that were against the fence but, they proved to be shy and trotted away from us.
