For those who don't know, this part of Texas has been experiencing a major drought. Temperatures above 100F (38C) and no rain for months. And you can sure tell by the water levels in the lakes.
Stumps sticking out of the low water level.
These people thought they bought property on a lake! Look how low the water is from their docks. I guess it's 6 to 8 feet lower than it should be.
We found a county park and boat launch area at Lake Limestone. There are covered picnic tables, and a lot of area to park overnight but it's not very level. We stayed because we're the only ones here and it's nice and quiet. Oh, and it's free.
Sherman, parked up at Lake Limestone
It was a hot day and we just relaxed for the afternoon.
Another hot day today, so we'll try and get some driving done early. Have to find some new front tires for Sherman. We only bought these two years ago and the sidewalls are already showing signs of deterioration. Plus, they are wearing badly on the inside and so Sherman will need an alignment as well. I guess we'll try and find a place in San Antonio this afternoon that can do the work.
