Llano Grande

On this the first really nice day in what seems like forever, we ventured down the valley a bit to Llano Grande Lake Park in Mercedes. Our mission was strictly social, as virtual friends Ed and Marilyn invited us to join them and their friends for a little happy hour. We have followed Ed and Marilyn's adventures through their blog for almost two years. It was a treat to meet them in person.

As we sat in the shade of Ed and Marilyn's lovely home, the boys quickly got to work solving the problems of the world.

We girls did our part, too! The conversation and laughter flowed as we got to know these new friends.

The time passed quickly, and all too soon it was time for us to head into the setting sun and back up the valley to Mission. Thanks, Ed and Marilyn, for a fun afternoon in your lovely park. Now we've seen for ourselves what brings these good folks back year after year.

It looks like you enjoyed the day. Maybe Mission isn't so bad after all, ya think? :)

hi.... i was surfing around online today looking for blogs about people living and traveling around in RV's. I came across yours.

I am working at putting a resource site up for RVing and would love to repost some of your blog there.

The site is www.rvingcentral.com. I'm trying to build up stories, resources all with the aim to provide people inspiration so they take the plunge and live the dream!

If you feel you'd like to participate, you can email me at info@rvingcentral.com, or just reply to the comment and i should get that.
