Mary remains at home in California tending to medical issues. She had successful carotid artery surgery on Wednesday, November 14th, returned home Thursday and is in the process of recuperation.
The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails. the largest RV resort company with 80 locations nationwide, of which Mary and I are members. I’ll begin my “Winter hibernation” by hiding out from colder weather with a three-week stay, departing not later than December 10th. After my stay here, I’ll head even further south until I reach the Rio Grande River and the border of Mexico to hide out from the colder Winter weather.
Yesterday I took a walk along a bit of the shoreline of Medina Lake…to see the lake. There was no lake…at least from what I could see. The first photo below is a Google Earth image of Medina Lake. It is not a real-time image. Looking in the lower left corner you can see it was taken March 31, 2008…
As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…
The pin marks the location of the motorhome. The curved yellow line is where I walked along the shore. From where I walked, I could see no water. I suspect there is still some water in the lake further south beyond my vision range. Here’s a current view of the boat launch ramp…
As you can see, there’s been no water here for a while as the Southwest has been in drought conditions for some time now. Here’s a photo from a National Geographic article about the drought…

Here’s a recent article from the San Antonio newspaper about Medina Lake and the drought…
It is not a pretty story or situation.
Here’s another photo of my camping spot…
Weather forecast for today is partly sunny and 78 degrees…pretty nice!
I haven’t been in San Antonio since 1979, so I may take a day-trip or two there while I’m here. Other than that I’ll just be hanging around reading and doing area photography. I’ll be supplementing my daily Blog with RV related topics that I’ve accumulated over the past year.
Enjoying beautiful scenery is another joy in the life of the full-time RVing lifestyle!
