Thursday, February 28 – This is our last day in Leisure Valley Ranch. Tomorrow, March 1, we pull-out heading to Texas Hill Country. Our first stop is in Bandera, TX, for about 5 days exploring that area. We will then move to Fredericksburg, TX, for another 5 days to see what interests us there.

This is our second time to Hill Country. We visited it back in the fall of 2010 in our motorhome. This trip is in the 5th wheel, a whole new adventure!

Our last day in Mission, TX, was a busy one. Paul spent most of the morning preparing for tomorrow's travel. Storing chairs, tables, hoses, leveling blocks, Marsha's purchases (ha, ha), cleaning off the slides, checking tire pressure, and cleaning up the campsite.

Then it was the “Goodbye Walk.” This is the tearing-eye experience Marsha insists putting herself through. She wants to say goodbye to all the friends she has here in Leisure Valley. Girls and their emotions......jeesh!

Marsha's good friend, Angie, insisted on having a “social” (happy hour) so all the girls could say, “goodbye” again. Paul and the other guys went along with the idea for the food and drinks!

Yes, there were several ladies missing from the photo. the girls

We met at Deb and Phil's house and enjoyed a good time on the patio. We really have met some very nice people here at Leisure Valley. This is our third winter here, and I'm sure we'll be back to visit sometime in the future. Next winter we have tentative plans to try Florida......we'll see!

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y'all back real soon. Have a great day!


  1. Happy and safe travels to the two you you.

  2. It's amazing how many friends we all make on the road. Parting is such sweet sorrow .....

  3. Sounds like you could use some "alone" time.

  4. I am sure you are having a great time in Bandera:))

  5. I love the Texas Hill Country. It's one of my favorite places.

  6. We certainly enjoyed T H C two years ago. Enjoy yourselves and stay safe.

  7. I'm thinking it's a good time to get out of "Leisure Valley"!! Life could get just a little too comfy there.

    Safe travels to your next destination.

  8. I'm with you Marsha, always tough to say goodbye. Enjoy your time in Hill Country.

  9. In Fredericksburg definitely visit the National Museum of the Pacific War if you haven't seen it and visit it again if you have. Good German restaurants there also like Der linderbaum.


Thanks for leaving us a comment. We enjoy reading them. Have a great day!
