Lake Tawakoni & Venus Texas
We had very poor internet access after leaving southern Florida – so we are now catching up on our video and blog postings.
Lake Tawakoni Texas – Thousand Trails
We are on our way west to the Escapee Escapade in Tucson Arizona. We stopped at Lake Tawakoni to take a few days to veg out and unwind from traveling from Southern Florida.
Lake Tawakoni is a Thousand Trails RV park. It was flooded some time ago, but many repairs are being done (primarily electrical). The park is spacious and it was fun flying Eyes of Lola (our DJI Mavic Drone). The wind was calm and weather good, so we got some good flying in. We are getting the many features of the drone dialed in, and you will see more improvements over time.
The trees were just starting to bud out, and the wildflowers were showing their colors. There are some neat spiders just waiting for a quick snack too!
There were lots of trails to walk the dogs, and the lake has some great places to boat. Some of the reviews complained about ruts in the roads, but we didn’t have any problems as long as we kept Lola at the 5 mph. Like many other Thousand Trails parks there are more and more seasonal or annual sites. Lake Tawakoni is no exception. We feel some of the sites really needed more cleanup; however this was still early in the “season”.
Just before leaving, our water heater started leaking (inside the RV!). It appears the back flow valve leaks. I took it out and removed the back-flow valve inside, but it was still leaking.
We drove on to the Texan RV Ranch in Venus Texas to see our good friends in Arlington. We had a great dinner with Mike and Vicky then did some much needed shopping in Venus.
Next – on to Lake Whitney – Another Thousand Trail preserve and a quick visit to Magnolia Market in Waco.
