Our real estate mini-business has to have a board meeting every year. So we decided to do a weekend retreat somewhere we could concentrate. So Lee and I used our condo points to book literally the only available 2-bedroom condo in Texas.
It’s in Lago Vista, an oddly endearing resort village on the north shore of Lake Travis. Well, it’s a condo all right. I think it’s the least charming one I’ve ever been in. It appears to be the same age as the Bobcat house, only with very few upgrades. (Bathrooms have been done, on a budget.)
It appears it once had a lake view and lots of green space. But someone sold that land and put fancy condos on it. Now there is a sliver of lake and some rich people you can glimpse between units.
Oh well. It’s almost free. And it has deer.
White-tail Deer (Odocoileus virginianus)
This place is like a deer theme park. One nearly walked into our condo. They even sell huge bags of deer corn in the office.
This family had a blast with them, really enjoying the does eating out of their hands. I didn’t mention deer ticks to them.
I really like this picture of the little boy and the deer, both with their mouths open. I’m glad they said I could share photos!
But the mom and babies are so sweet.
There are some bucks, too, but not huge ones.
Even with all the corn, these guys are pretty skinny. It’s not surprising. There are so many, at least three family groups I saw so far.
I know Carol and I will enjoy taking walks around here. She did when she lived out here! On the walk I took, I saw a really pretty striped snake slinking away from me. It looked like one of those patch-nosed snakes I’ve been seeing near the Bobcat house.
There is a pool here and a little lake access. Maybe we can rent a pontoon boat!
Or, we will do our meetings and I’ll look at deer. Lots and lots of deer.
