The first thing I noticed even before we got to the city limits, was the increased law enforcement presence and it was that way all the way to and from the lake. My first stop was at Diablo East Marina, was disappointed at seeing the low water levels but that did not keep people away, the parking lot was full. It must be fun to have a boat and take it for a spin. Would you believe I have never been on a boat at Lake Amistad?
Headed to my favorite campground Governors Landing and it was almost full, there were only two or three campsites available. Most tents I saw were the regular nylon ones and with the gusty winds, I bet some will not make it through the weekend.
Governors Landing has a separate area for day use and it was packed to capacity. I could not even find an available parking space so I could stop and take a couple of pictures.
Decided to head to San Pedro campground to photograph the Billy Bob tree and perhaps get him to leave a comment or at the very least get him to make a blog post...are you listening, Billy Bob? I am sure I am not the only one that misses you :-(
We went to several area parks along San Felipe Creek and people were out in droves. They were bar-b-qing, swimming, tubing, listening to music and generally having a good time.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
