Our immediate destination was Texas, where we planned to spend a month with good friends, Donna and Glenn Hallford, after an extended weekend stay with granddaughter, Cassandra.

We stayed at Cedar Breaks C.O.E. on Lake Georgetown.  The campground is appropriately named as you park nestled among the cedars.2011-08-20 - TX - Cedar Breaks C.O.E. - Visit with Cassie (9)

It was quite hot, so we stayed inside for most of Cassie’s visit.  A short walk through the campground took us to a homestead site from the past.2011-08-20 - TX - Cedar Breaks C.O.E. - Visit with Cassie (6)        2011-08-20 - TX - Cedar Breaks C.O.E. - Visit with Cassie (7) All that remains of the home are some foundation stones.2011-08-20 - TX - Cedar Breaks C.O.E. - Visit with Cassie (8)     2011-08-20 - TX - Cedar Breaks C.O.E. - Visit with Cassie (10)

The drought has been severe in Texas, vividly pointed out by these beached piers. There is no water running where once there was fishing from the docks.2011-08-20 - TX - Cedar Breaks C.O.E. - Visit with Cassie (3)    2011-08-20 - TX - Cedar Breaks C.O.E. - Visit with Cassie (4)

The dry grass appeared golden in the light of the setting sun.

As we walked along the edge of the lake, the  evening colors were spectacular.

Our visit was to end on a sad note.  We received word that Glenn had passed away unexpectedly.  We continued on to Kerrville to spend the month with Donna.

Glenn was a very special friend.  We have traveled with him and Donna often over the years.  We shall always miss him.  This photo was taken last spring when he and Donna joined Cassie and us at Georgetown Lake for a week.
