Bob and Shirley's Great Adventure 2011-12 travel blog

Water, water everywhere

So close

Lookin' out my backdoor

The rig

A good perspective




Girlls softball field

Boys baseball field



Fishing pier

Crane on piling

Feeling better

Well actually it's our Ford F-350 and we are 200 yards past the levee of the Trinity River shed at Ft. Anahauc TX (near Baytown). Shirley was a little under the weather so we decided to skip Houston and only do about 100 miles. We looked in our AAA camping book and found this park which was an old fort put up by the Mexicans when Texas was theirs. No fort left but plenty of historic signs. Great park with ball fields used by the local high school baseball and softball teams. I went up to watch them practice and strolled the grounds. There is a very nice fishing pier and two boat ramps. We are not far from the Gulf and there are plenty of wetlands in this Nature Preserve. Our campsite is THE BEST free campsite we have had to date hands down. We are the only campers here and we're on a peninsula which is about 30 yards wide. Water on three sides. Brown pelicans, cranes and other shore birds abound. My birthday binoculars are coming in very handy. Again, our camper is well suited for this since there are no services. We are doing what is called dry camping. The generator is on as I speak so we can charge the PC and our phones. Since we are at the shore the terrain is flat and we plan on riding our bikes today through the park and spending another night. Enjoy the pics.
