Del Rio RV's

Del Rio, Texas is about 150 miles west of San Antonio, on the border of Mexico, about midway between Padre Island and Big Bend National Park. Nearby is Lake Amistad that is formed by the Rio Grande, Pecos and Devil Rivers which in turn is surrounded by the Amistad National Recreation Area. It is a treeless, temperate area that holds hidden beauty which at first may go unrecognised. When we first arrived there, we asked ourselves "Why are we here??!!!" I called it "treeless" when in actuality, there ARE scrubby mesquites and cedars (VERY scrubby). The Lake, however, has no trees on it or even near it! Nevertheless wildlife abounds and after spending some time there, I found myself relishing the wildness and expanse of space. And the sunsets were awesome. Oh, and did I mention the area holds one of our nation's richest treasure of aboriginal cave paintings? Well worth the trip....
This little 6 X 8 oil painting on masonite is a view of the RV campground at sunset and can be purchased for $50 from me before it goes up for auction on eBay.
Luke 12:33 Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will not be exhausted, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys.
