Stamp & Camp with Mary - December 6, 2018 - so many great places we have been visiting

So much great times we have had. 

We left Holiday Village RV Resort on Tuesday but we were their for 12 days and really loved the area. We had the best neighbors.
We loved that it only had 30 sites that they were nice size sites, that it was in the middle of nowhere, you were not listening to traffic all night, no train tracks, folks were very nice and you could see the stars.  I also liked that it was an easy drive to areas we wanted to visit.

WE went to Kerrville numerous times mainly to get Don's Prescriptions worked out with Walmart, but we did have a few different adventures there.  One was at the Kerrville Hills Winery.  It was fun and we tasted some pretty good wines, of course we bought a few also.  We met a couple of ladies that were from Houston but one had started out in Chicago area and it was fun talking to them. They noticed Don's Packer hat and one had a Fighting Illni and I had my Spartan cap on such a small world.
 Did you know the Hill Country has 54 wineries?  It had none when I was living in the area.

 One day we spent walking around Fredricksburg TX.  Did a few wine tastings at a few shops but no real wineries just tasting rooms.  Not really the same.  Had a great lunch at a good German restaurant. I forgot how good real German food is.  The downtown still has some of the very old buildings but the town sure has grown.

One day we took the back roads into San Antonio and went to the river walk.  Loved it.  WE even took the boat ride..  It was fun and we ate at a Mexican Restaurant and watched everyone go by.  Another small world  our waitress was originally from Racine Wisconsin.  She made a comment about the Packers and way to go after seeing Don's hat and we started talking, was interesting to find people that are familiar with our area so far from home. We even got to shout go Green at another Spartan and got a Go White back.  We want by the Alamo and I thought Don would want to go in but no, he said it was a lot bigger in the John Wayne movie, maybe next time.

We spent a few days just in the campground just relaxing.  You could really walk around the area and we explored some of the places for sale, it is a Holiday resort but also has all year long residents.  
We are planing on coming back in February for a month.  We want to explore more around the area, I want to go back to LBJ and we have so many more wineries to look into.

Tuesday we left and went to Fort Stockton it was the Fort Stockton RV Park.  Was a nice park not the best but would go back.  They had a restaurant on site that did Breakfast and Dinner, we did not take part in it but folks were saying it was good.  We went to explore and found the Walmart.

Wednesday Night we were at the Las Cruces KOA, which was not in Las Cruces but in Mersilla.  We went down to the Mersilla downtown and went to the Plaza, walked around and had a great dinner at La Posta De Mesilla, I had the best Margarita in a long time OK  I had 2.  Fajitas and Empanda was great.  Was fun walking around in the old town area.  Really liked the area and the KOA was very nice, did not have to listen to highway noises all night was very nice.

Tonight we are in Willcox AZ and I have to say this is the best looking KOA we have been in.  So beautiful  they just redid the whole place and it is great.  Nice bathrooms and great store and breakfast in the morning.  Staff is great and helpful and they have real ice cream.  

We went downtown and ran into a winery, yes a winery in Arizona. So of course we stopped in and tasted some and found out that Willcox has a lot of wineries and they produce 75% of all grapes grown in Arizona.  We bought 2 bottles of some very good wines.  Don says we don't find many wines we don't like.  Well I am not a fan of dark reds or very dry white.  So I think we at least know what we like.  Well the lady at that Winery told us about another one and away we went, more tasting and 3 bottle later we were back at our camper.

Tomorrow we head to Phoenix and Leaf Verde RV Resort.  I can't wait.

Hope you are enjoying our trip, we are.  Thanks for visiting with us.
