Views from my Window

Beautiful Medina Lake, TX.  There are deer everywhere, sprauling oaks jacketed with moss, warm soft breezes, and a beautiful lake. 

Medina Lake is best known among fishermen for its large yellow catfish. Medina Lake's 4,246-acres of clear water, sheltered by hills and limestone bluffs, are also haven for SCUBA divers.
Fish species found in Medina Lake:
  • Bass: Hybrid Striped, Largemouth, Smallmouth, White
  • Catfish: Blue, Channel, Flathead
  • Crappie: Black, White
  • Shad: Gizzard, Threadfin
  • Others: Bluegill, Walleye
We are loving this place!  Haven't had the chance to fish yet, but we will.  Shasta about lost her mind when she saw all of the deer! 

The weather has been in the upper 70s to low 80s. So awesome!  Today we saw a young deer with a plastic grocery bag entwined in his antlers.  So sad.  The other deer were freaked out by it, and he didn't know what to do about it!  Please, please, please, don't think that a plastic bag is no big deal!  Imagine how long he'll have that bag on there.  All of his herd are running from him and there's nothing he can do.  We bought some corn to feed them, thinking that we may be able to get close enough to help him out.  We didn't see him tonight.  I don't mean to be a downer, but, we need to realize the consequences of our littering.


  1. I feel like I'm traveling with you!

  2. Mr. Cardinal surely stands out! I simply abhor those who think the world at-large is their wastebasket. How frightening for the buck and his herd. :(

  3. The unintended consequences of our thoughtless actions have such repercussions. If only we could write THINK BEFORE ACTING in huge letters in our brains.

    I just know that I am going to enjoy the coming part of the Great Traveling Adventure.
