Stopped at Livingston TX to see doctors and found out Penny needs cataract surgery in both eyes. This means we will be here for a month or so but at least it clears the vision. So posting may be a little slow the next month.
The trip from Corpus Cristi was uneventful mainly. We stopped at Wharton TX overnight at Tee Pee RV park before arriving in Livingston TX yesterday. Small but good for a one-nighter near the road.
We will be here for two weeks as I have a couple of doctor appointments. Then we are heading East toward North Carolina and Pennsylvania.
We can now say we are good at surviving wind storms. It seems we get one or two a week this month at the beach. It rocks the RV a little but now I am used to it I hardly notice the motion. The cats still do not like it at all. Here are some pictures of the waves hitting the pier by us.
SO with a new year, we are starting more pictures. I created an RV Pictures album so you can see all the pictures we take at https://photos.app.goo.gl/8GddeSGiE6ixkPwZ6
If problems with the link – let me know.
We have been enjoying the area food establishments as well as the weather – when the wind is down. One was Andy’s restaurant for breakfast. Good old fashion cooking and trains. The boxcars advertise for local merchants.
Another great place was Twin Peaks Restaurant, a sports bar, with a great atmosphere and food out of this world. The barbecue was fantastic. I never saw shorts so short in my life. The waitresses were great and we had a good time.
The winds have been unusually high periodically here and the locals say this is unusual. So much for global warming. The palms are swaying a lot. But we are surrounded by water on three sides and the view is unforgettable.
We plan to move to Livingston, TX in a week for appointments and then head East. Hope to see you all in a little while.
Another successful move to NAS Corpus Christi, TX. Weather is in the 70s, clear skies, and calm seas. In other words, it is beautiful here.
We went to breakfast at Andy’s Kitchen in Corpus Christ, TX (https://www.andyskitchen.com/ ). It was an excellent place with great food and superior service! They had a very inventive train set running at the top of the restaurant. We strongly recommend them to anyone visiting the area.
We plan to be here a month so we hope to have more later. Wish you all were here.
Lake Casa Blanca (translated to Lake White House) in Texas is large and very beautiful.
It has camping, fishing, trails, and more. The weather has been in the mid to the high 70s unless raining. We rode our bikes around to the mission on the lake – a bit run down and fascinating.
It was a good day for the ride and site seeing.
We continue to stay in the warmer weather. Laredo has been in 60 to 70s, with light winds and beautiful skies. We went to the lake here at the park and walked the beach a little.
Then we saw the Palm trees too.
It is quiet and warm. Very close to Mexico. Se hebla? Or do you speak Spanish? Loredo has a line down the middle called the Rio Grande River, On one side is the USA and the other is Mexico. Lots to see an do here too;
Another cloudy day so we decided to go to Sonora TX to see the Senora Cave. The trip was so exciting and the landscape was flat. Like living in a Zane Gray novel.
The cave was really dark and very humid and hot. we went down 155 feet and a mile and a half long. They had 350 steps to walk down and up. They also had animals in the area and an RV park. Maybe next time we can stay here. The sites were beautiful.
We had a lot of fun, a 2 hour tour of the cave and sites.
After the severe weather last night, we survived with no damage, so we headed out for Del Rio, TX. It was a short ride with lots of cactus and shrubbery.
The RV Park in Del Rio TX, was better then we thought ad they have a lit of cats – feral cats everywhere. They are so cute. There is about 10 and probably more there then we have seen. So the fun begins.
Since the weather is so warm we have been able to ride the Aerial Electric Bikes a little. It helps my arthritis and provides an assist if I need it. Berny is much better on them then I am but we can ride around the park since it is so large and get a good run in.
