Blanco State Park

View of highway 281 bridge from Blanco State Park low water crossing. The river is beautiful and the water is so clear you can see the fish.
The park is right in the middle of town, and its location makes for great day trips to other areas. It is less than an hour drive to Fredericksburg, San Marcos, New Braunfels and San Antonio.
The dam at state park. The park personnel stock this area twice a year with catfish and trout. Donnie still hasn't done any fishing here and we are leaving tomorrow (4/4/08). Guess he'll have to wait until we visit again.
We are here at one of our favorite sites. All of the spaces have lots of room and nice views. Sure have enjoyed the two weeks we have spent here but will soon be time to head to Aubrey TX. We plan to visit my sister Kathy, her husband Joe and daughter Megan. We also plan to join in the 75th birthday celebration of the church in Denton, where Kathy and I attended when we were growing up. Donnie and I were also married there 35 years ago. It's gotta have a historical marker for that!
This is the "swimming hole" at the park. We have seen a few brave kids in it during spring break, but Donnie and I are too wussy to try it! Although one of the park hosts here say the water usually stays at 72 degrees, as it is spring fed. Speaking of park hosts, we have been asked to host here whenever we want. Sounds like it would be interesting and everyone here is very nice and friendly, but we aren't quite ready to do that yet. Maybe in a few years when we get tired of traveling.
