Writing Retreat



I mentioned in an earlier post that I need to get away for a couple of days to write. I know that Rey would appreciate a get-away too being that he's been working so long at his new job. I came up with the idea that we should go away for a weekend somewhere that he can play golf all day while I write. Rey found this golf course in Bastrop that has cabins that allow you to plan an overnight visit with complimentary breakfast. They don't have internet connection in the rooms but maybe that's a good thing because I won't be distracted by the internet. If I need to research a point I can just make a note to go back to it.

Anyway, here are pictures of the golf course and the cabins. The view from the cabins is the golf course and the Colorado River.

Now I just need to figure out a weekend that my mother-in-law can stay with the kids.

ShoeGirl,

This is awesome!!! The place looks beautiful, peaceful and quiet! Exactly what you need. I think the lack of internet connectivity is probably a blessing in disguise so you can just focus on your writing! Can't wait to hear how it goes!

I am SO looking forward to doing this. We've decided we're going to do it in the fall when it starts getting cool. I kinda wanted to do it the weekend after our 9 year anniversary, like Labor Day weekend. That's one nice thing, Labor Day will always fall right after our anniversary so we can take a long weekend off together.
