11/18/13 - Lake Livingston

11/18/13

On Saturday, our Canadian friends, Art and Ricky (from the Habitat build) checked in to the site next to us for a few days.    They've introduced us to a wonderful new game called Quiddlers (think scrabble and phase 10) - so much fun!   This is a quiet park (lots of "old" people) so it's nice to have friends right next door.  As experienced full-timers, they are a wealth of information and we are getting lots of great ideas for places to go and things to see.  

On Sunday we did laundry and just tried to stay cool.  The temps were in the 80's and it was very humid, we had to turn on the A/C - sorry Chicago family and friends.    

On Monday we woke up to temperatures in the 70's and clear blue skies so we decided to visit Lake Livingston State Park. Lake Livingston is the 2nd largest lake located within the borders of Texas.   It is 39 miles long and at it's widest point it is 7 miles.

















We found an unmarked trail and hiked that for a while and then we hiked a one mile boardwalk trail to visit a frog pond and butterfly garden.




Maddie loves being off leash (shhh, don't tell the Texas Rangers).
