We have a saying at Las Islas...
"If you're lucky enough to be at
Las Islas, you're lucky enough!"
Las Islas is a deer lease. It's a way of life in Texas and probably in other states as well. We lease the land from private owners. There is a season to hunt mature deer and it lasts for several weeks during the winter months. There is also quail, turkey and dove to hunt during a certain season. We also use our deer lease for entertaining and relaxing. We had some upkeep to take care of this weekend, so we arrived Friday in time to visit a little and get a good night's sleep.
Saturday was spent with my husband and another man repairing some water lines for water troughs for the animals. A friend and I spent most of the afternoon doing what we do best out there... visiting and relaxing.
We enjoy cooking and last night we grilled tilapia for fish
tacos. We enjoyed a huge salad with that and a few brownies.
As you can see from the pictures a javallina visited me. Their eye-sight is very poor but their sense of smell and hearing is superb. I had to be very, very still to get this picture.
I wish I could say I took the picture of the bluebonnets but mine did not turn out well. This picture is almost identical to what I saw.
The picture of the men sitting around the fire is located in what we call the center court of the camp. It's the gathering place and many good times have been had here. My husband is the farthest man to the left.
The cactus is growing and wildflowers are coming out. Soon there will be fields of wildflowers and hopefully we'll get the rains that are predicted this week so the ground will be blanketed with beautiful colors!
All rested now and ready for the week. That's what a weekend at Las Islas will do for you.
