Medina Lake and the deer. March 2013

We decided to go to the Thousand Trails Campground at Medina Lake. This park is about 40 miles outside of San Antonio, TX. The lake is almost empty since Texas is experiencing a drought.

There is not much around here unless you want to drive 20 to 30 miles. We did find a good Mexican Restaurant and the cafe here is good and open on the weekends.

The main entertainment is the deer. First day we were here we went and bought a 50 lb bag of deer pelletsIMG_0334. It is like deer corn – which they love but has extra nutrients.

We also added a 5 gallon bucket and filled it with water.


I  put 2 bowls out by the front door of the MH and several bowls and plates on the side so I could sit at the table and watch them out the window.

We went through one bag of food and bought anothere 50 lb bag. We fed them twice a day. The largest group we counted were 25, Here is my favorite!



We will be leaving on Monday and have to say good-bye to the deer!
