Lake LBJ...One of the happiest places on earth

Roy here.  Here is some information and a link for Lake LBJ.  Many of us know how beautiful the "Hill Country" of central Texas is.  The rolling terrain and evergreen vegetation is very special in area that is warm most of the year.  When Jan and I came to the Texas she wanted to be in the Hill Country and I wanted to be near or on the water.  Horseshoe Bay and Lake LBJ were the perfect combination.  LBJ is a spectacular lake with great boating , fishing, jet skiing, moonlit cruises, fireworks, lake shore homes, and the list goes on.  Water is very special in many ways, but to me the water is therapeutic.  Just sitting on the shore and watching the waves or people having fun makes me feel good.  And when you have children and grand children swimming, being towed on an inflatables laughing and enjoying the water, we are reminded again why we love Horseshoe Bay and Lake LBJ.
