Dec 10, 2011 - San Luis Pass-Freeport, TX

December 10, 2011 Camped for one night at San Luis Pass--Freeport, TX at the county park-temperature 65. San Luis Pass is an island south of Galveston, TX. From the north there is a free ferry to get on the island. The ferry is the only way on the island from the north. We rode on the ferry in the motor home with the car hooked on behind. This was a really neat experience. They run 5 ferries back and forth daily. The ferries are large enough to hold many cars, 18 wheelers and motor homes. Going across the bay on the ferry, we saw many...

Mar 27, 2010 - NIMBY

We moved down the coast a bit to Quintana County Park, located in the metropolis of Quintana founded in 1532, population 38. After extensive exploration we can conclude that almost the entire gulf coast of Texas is a lovely collection of barrier islands, bayous, river deltas and an intercoastal waterway. The beaches are wide and many are empty. Every coastal town has tourist brochures extolling the bird watching here. Some of the birds are natives and others stop by until it's safe to go north again, rather like us. Fish seem to be...

Feb 22, 2008 - Bryan Beach, Texas

Friday February 22…9:30pm Woke up to a cloudy windy morning. Used the free internet from the RV park across the road and contacted the Formosa Plastics Co. They have a huge plant across the causeway in the town of Point Comfort. We had read that they do free factory tours, so decided this was something to do. Made our appointment for 1:30pm. Stopped along the way back at Port Lavaca and used a laudramat. Made it to Point Comfort early, so stopped at a park and had some lunch and took Whiskey for a walk. The sky has cleared up now, and it’s...

Feb 10, 2007 - GALVESTON

We have found a place we really want to live. Our condo was right on the seawall, and we slept with the windows open to reveal the sea - so peaceful! Check out the sunrise over the Gulf of Mexico taken from our balcony. We really enjoyed the Mardi Gras celebration, with parades and lots of beads.

Oct 20, 2006 - I-10 across LA to Texas

This post covers the trip from Lake City, Florida to Freeport, Texas. This was some heck of a trip. It rained all the way across Florida, we spent the night in a Wal Mart parking lot in Mobile, Al, then drove on to La. Stopped for two nights in Livingston, La at Lakeview RV Park, nice park with a lake and ducks swimming. Did some laundry and rested. As it was, we should have stayed longer and maybe we would have missed some of the bad weather we ran into. The road(I-10) across La was horrible, we were jarred to death, the wind was blowing...
