raccoon-for-stacy.jpgSomeone just asked me where Artesian Lakes is located.  It is actually in a town named Romayor, Texas.  Since very few of you probably know where that is . . .I’ll describe it’s location in more detail.

I live in Bellaire, Texas which is very close to the Houston Galleria.  When I drive to Artesian Lakes I get on the freeway from the west side of the 610 Loop and get on 59 North.  I exit in Cleveland, Texas and get on 787 to get to Romayor(about 18 minutes).  The whole drive takes about 70 minutes from the Galleria . . .if you’re not in rush hour.

I still can’t get over the fact that in about an hour or so I can be out of the hustle and bustle of the big city life to a serene, heavily wooded area of East Texas on the edge of the Big Thicket.  THe lakes are beautiful.  One of the first things I do when I get there is to get my pole and do a little bass fishing.    The birds, racoons, squirrels and other wildlife are fabulous to watch.  Occasionally, I’m lucky enough to see deer.  The country style dirt/gravel roads winding in and out around the lakes and trees actually lead me to the tranquil retreat that I so often desperately need.  It’s peaceful!!!

Of course I’ll continue blogging about this area since this is where we have started building “Our Log Cabin Dream”.
