Galveston, Texas – Day 1

Yesterday we drove the motorhome the about 55 miles from Freeport to Galveston, Texas.

Recently we have been slowly moving north and as we follow the Texas Gulf of Mexico Coast…east. The reason is because on February 6th, we have reservations to enter Sam Houston Jones State Park at Lake Charles, Louisiana for a one-week stay while we enjoy Mardi Gras!

As shown in this Google Earth image below, we ran directly along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico for 40 miles. V marks our current location at VFW Post #8248. Galveston is on an island of 56.000+ population with even more people in the city getting ready for Mardi Gras. Real estate becomes very expensive so there are only two clubs…the Elks with no parking lot and the American Legion with a very small parking lot…so we had to move off-island to find a place to park…

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…




We are parked at another very friendly VFW Post, #8248 about 12 miles from downtown Galveston. We expect to depart here on Friday…


As always, I like to show the view from the dinette window…


The red dot on the below map shows our approximate location in the State of Texas. You may double left-click the map to make it larger…(look closely on the Texas coast…)


Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!
