Thank God For Weekends

I don’t know about you, but after a hard week of work (actually, as soon as the week starts) I’m ready to hit the road and enjoy another weekend.   If the weekend isn’t already planned, I use Texas Outside to help us find an area to explore and enjoy a weekend that involves some combination of multiple activities including: camping, biking, boating, golfing, music festivals, hiking, cruising, touring, restaurants, and more. We try to cram as many activities into the weekend as we possibly can.  Which means on Monday, it’s really hard to drag our sunburned, tired, and sore body into work!   Having done this in Texas since 1980, we have gone through four RVs, a sailboat, three ski boats, and multiple bikes, golf clubs, tennis racquets, walking sticks, and Frisbees – the good news is that we haven’t worn out or replaced the knees, elbows, or other body parts. 

Thank God For Weekends will provide you with an overview of our activities for that weekend.

The Wildflower Spa pool at the Hyatt Hill Country ResortDining, Drinking, Dancing, and Duffing at the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort

An outstanding weekend but I think I drank and ate a little to much, hit (and lost) way more golf balls than I should have, and should never have gotten on the dance floor. But the Spa treatment and a nap in the hammock by the pool just before we left for home made all of it well worth it!

What a fun time, well for some of us, chasing that golf ball through tall pines, around and in Lake Conroe, and into some huge white sand bunkers that made me think I was on the beach at South Padre Island.

Plus some good food, lots of drinks, and a dip in the pool with a margarita at La Torretta Lake Resort, one of the best resorts in Texas.
