Choke Canyon

John's sister and brother-in-law are here from Alaska (not staying in our house this time) so we all drove south to Choke Canyon. I bought lunch in Three Rivers, Texas. Had a nice conversation with a local there finding out an old friend from that town is in the nursing home. That was a kick in the face. We drove around the park at Caliham, Texas to see lots of deer. The weather was a little cool but not too bad. The deer there are fairly tame but we're not allowed to feed them like we could in the past. Didn't see the turkeys and armadillos and javalinos we've seen in the past but it certainly was nice to get out for a change and have a good driver doing the driving on his gas and his rented car

Sounds like a lovely day out. And seeing all those deer even without feeding them had to be nice. Getting out and about is always FUN. Perfect change of scenery. Sorry to hear your friend was in a nursing facility.

How nice, visitors who don't expect you to take care of them. Sounds like a pleasant day out.
Bummer, the older we get, the more people we know are in nursing homes or worse.

Sounds like you had a great time it's always nice to have someone else do the driving once in a while. Take care, Jean.

Deer are a precious marvel to me. I've never tried to feed them, & mostly, I'll assume they stay alive better not being habituated to people. In NJ they cull them, which I've always found to be such a shame. They really don't overpopulate so much as humans overbuild in their deer areas.
Glad you are getting out & having fun on someone else's dime.
