SANDY CREEK (Gillespie County). Sandy Creek rises thirteen miles north of Fredericksburg in northern Gillespie County (at 30°27' N, 98°54' W). Fed by numerous tributaries, it drains the lower quarter of Llano County and follows a northeasterly course for forty-seven miles to its mouth on Lake Lyndon Baines Johnson, at the community of Sunrise Beach Village (at 30°34' N, 98°25' W). The creek traverses areas of the Llano Basin that vary from flat to rolling terrain covered with sandy and clay loams to steep terrain in the southern part of the Riley Mountains covered by shallow, stony soils. Vegetation consists primarily of open stands of live oak and mesquite.

CLICK, TEXAS . Click is on Barnett Branch near Sandy Creek in Sandy Valley, fifteen miles southeast of Llano in southeastern Llano County. It was granted a post office in 1880 with Benjamim F. Lowe as postmaster. The community was named for the large family descended from Malachi Click, an early settler. At one time it had a church, a school, and a store, but the post office was closed after 1940, and the population had declined to twenty by 1966.
