We made it back from the rally….exhausted! There IS such a thing as having TOO MUCH FUN! The Shagadelic Airstream Gig at Barefoot Camp Rv Park was far out, righteous and groovy!
First I want to tell you about Barefoot Camp RV Park and the owners Jackie and Charlene Brister. It is located on their working cattle and sheep ranch in Bend, Texas on the Colorado River. The park is beautiful, clean and so peaceful, we didn’t want to come home. Jackie and Charlene were so sweet and went way out of their way to make us all feel welcome.
Charlene brought Buttermilk Pies, Pecan Pies, and the best deviled eggs I have ever eaten to the pot luck and barbeque. Jackie brought his amazing antique corn grinder out and demonstrated it for everyone. If you have ever been to Canton, Texas at First Monday you may have seen or heard one like it. We all took fresh ground cornmeal home with us. You don’t meet people like the Brister’s very often. Thank you so much, Jackie and Charlene, for everything!
On Friday several of us hiked the trail to Gorman Falls in nearby Colorado Bend State Park. It was a beautiful hike through a native Texas landscape of wildflowers, cedar trees and cactus in bloom. The change of scenery was dramatic once we descended down the rocky path to the falls. It was just beautiful. If you visit the park, don’t miss this!
If you have ever met the President of The Heart of Texas Camping Unit, Ann Flannagan, you know how incredible she is. She goes way, way beyond the call of duty for the club. She is so creative…she makes you want to be more creative! She held a few tie-dye parties at her home to create the fantastic tie-dyed shirts you see everyone wearing in these photos. The tablecloths on the tables and the adorable wood flower stakes with our names and WBCCI numbers were all Ann. She is AMAZING! Thank you so much Ann Flannagan for all you do for the club…you are one “Groovy Sister” and we love you!
I love the way the light reflects on an Airstream at night. I couldn’t resist walking around and taking a few pictures of the beautiful trailers and their owners enjoying the evening. Thanks Diane for posing for us! Fun stuff!
That brings us to ….”The Gig”! Dan and I aren’t usually the “dress up” type but…we got sucked into this and just went for it! Thank goodness there were other like-minded, far-out groovy people out there to be hipsters with us!
The barbeque was amazing and I’m so sorry I didn’t get a picture of Tony and Sandra. They brought the food and served it up in true Texas style. Thanks guys!
It was a fantastic weekend. We made some new friends and saw some spectacular trailers. Doesn’t get any better than that! Happy Trails!
Oh…and…Peace and Love to all our brothers and sisters of the HOTCU and the Lone Star VAC!
