Natural Bridge Cave

Boy, the campground here is really emptying out. Our neighbors left a few days ago and we miss them. They were really nice. They're fulltimers from Wisconsin and were meandering back up there for the summer. They said they were coming back to Texas for the winter. We decided we are too. We drove around the area closer to John & Erica and found a really nice place called Braunig Lake RV Resort in Elmendorf. It's south of San Antonio but will be easier for them to get to than where we are now. We'll probably be there for a few months and then return here for a few months. We really like the park we're in right now but it takes them an hour to get here to see us. They live on the southwest side and we're staying on the northeast side and the traffic and construction through San Antonio is brutal. They did come over on Saturday and we had a nice steak dinner with baked potatoes and grilled asparagus and zucchini. John has been stopping by on his way home from work occasionally so on Sunday I made one of his favorite dinners that he hasn't had in a long time called pork adobo. It's basically pork cooked in vinegar and soy sauce for a few hours so the pork is soooooo tender. Erica doesn't eat pork or fish so I've been making fish when he comes without her and we have "Erica friendly" meals when she's here. :) She does bring us the treats from the bakery though and we REALLY like that. She also brought pizza from one of our favorite pizza places Papa Murphy's. She already knew we LOVE the chicken and garlic pizza. Since our oven in the RV is so small she cooked it at home and brought it over and we microwaved individual pieces. YUMMY YUMMY!!!

Today we went to Natural Bridge Caverns here in San Antonio. The name of the cave comes from the natural stone bridge, all that is left of a huge, collapsed room that now forms the entrance. It's only about 10 minutes from where we are staying. We've been in caves in Barbados and Ireland, and two caves in Texas. This cave was the most impressive so far. Someday we'll go to Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico. I've seen pictures and it's pretty amazing.

Hi Debbie, I see you finally got Erica to pose for a picture, such a sweet couple, and she is a great as her smile !!

I loved visiting with y'all at Schertz. Lovely dinner with lots of veges. I love veges. Thank you.

I have been to Elmendorf to a lovely family's home, and it is a lovely area there.

I haven't been to Natural Bridge Caverns for about 30 years, but I expect that it hasn't changed, and is still just as impressive.

Happy Trails, Penny

We stayed at Braunig Lake Rv Park a couple of years ago and enjoyed it there. It was very convenient to downtown San Antonio too and with a SuperWalmart just a couple of exits away, what more could one ask for LOL! They even had a great potluck while we were there. We also liked it because it was south of the city so we could head on our way south to the Coastal Bend of TX.

Penny, we sure enjoyed your visit as well. Nice to put a face to a name.

Sandra, good to know you liked the park. I think we'll be happy with our choice.
