Here is where we wanted to be! I booked a week at the Pecan Grove RV Park, right in the midst of the action in Austin. I read about this place several years ago – it’s supposed to be the hippest RV park around, with a years long waiting list for a permanent spot. The location could not be beat and it was fun to be close to everything and to be able to ride bikes right to miles of beautiful paths, but it was really just like any other RV Park but with grosser bathrooms and no picnic tables. And a big intact Chocolate Lab that liked to come pee on “our” bush and growl at Teddy. No Matthew McConaughey sightings, either. Don’t get me wrong – we’d stay there again in a heartbeat.
Austin highlights were visiting with K’s nephew and with my old friend and her family, eating barbeque, riding bikes and soaking up the great young people energy in Austin. I think my kids got a good picture of how fun it will be to be independent young men.
From here, we have a longish stop in nearby San Antonio for K and D to participate in a Western Shooting lesson.
