Texas Hill Country Adventure

I find myself sitting on the back porch of River Haven Cabins in Leakey, TX.  The atmosphere is peaceful.  The slow moving river provides a nice ambiance as I relax with a good cup of coffee and try my hand at blogging.

  Before we left home my husband spent all day Christmas making King Ranch Chicken, a Lasagna, and marinating steaks so we would not have to expend to much energy cooking once we arrived at the River. 

 

Half The Adventure Is Getting There

 

  We left home early in the morning to beat the after Christmas traffic which seemed to be a success.  The highway was dark until we got to our first turnoff.  The drive was gorgeous avoiding the main highways for the most part spending the majority of the time on winding country roads.  Small towns like Jordanton, Devine, and Hondo are charming breaks in the landscape.

We arrived after getting lost briefly due to some Google map confusion at about 11am.  Cabin management was nice enough to let us check in before the normal check in time of 2pm. Though I would not recommend trying to do that during their peak seasons. 

The cabin we are staying in is a two room duplex cabin, each having two bedrooms and two bathrooms with a well equipped kitchen, dining table and sitting area.  Rates are great at $128.00 per night during their off season.  Towels and bedding are supplied as well as soap for bathing though shampoo and conditioner not among their complimentary toiletries.

  Traveling with two young children can sometimes be difficult but or seven and two years olds settled in right away.  We don’t have cable at home so anywhere with Cartoon Network is heaven for them.

Temperatures reached right around freezing overnight as their was a good bit of ice on the car, but by noon you could comfortably go out in short sleeves.

My two boys thought it would be a great idea to go for a swim while we took a hike along the river despite the waters cold temperature, but they had a blast.  Their daddy carried the youngest back up the steep steps to the cabin for a nice nap in a warm bed.

Despite a geocaching debacle involving the head of a large metal chicken we are having a wonderful time.

Tomorrow we are heading to Lost Maples State Park.

I am a working mother of two in CCTX. My husband and I have great aspirations to travel but not a lot of time and money to do so. My family and I do not travel a great deal, I am a novice traveler at best.  I have never gone outside of the U.S., as an adult I have barely left Texas. I am hoping to pass along and tips, tricks, great deals and any ideas we pick up along the way.
