Galveston, Texas Day 4 (GA384)

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 5,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 23rd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Thunderbird RV Resort in Monroe, Washington. I’ll depart here June 25th.

 

Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.

 

 

 

This entry was posted January 31, 2013…

 

 

We are still parked at VFW Post #8248 just north of Galveston, Texas.

 

 

We expected to leave yesterday but strong winds held us over for an extra day…so we did laundry, grocery shopping and other odds and ends. The winds have subsided so we now expect to depart later this morning.

 

 

Note: Our Internet account starts a new cycle on February 5th, We are currently approaching our maximum allowable usage. Consequently we’ll be on a “photo diet”…posting fewer pictures than usual until then.

 

 

Here are some other photos I took over the last couple of days which did not get published because of our “photo diet”…

This entry was posted January 30, 2013…

 

 

Yesterday we drove the Bronco the about 15 miles from our parking spot at VFW Post #8248 to downtown Galveston, Texas.

 

 

Note: Our Internet account starts a new cycle on February 5th, We are currently approaching our maximum allowable usage. Consequently we’ll be on a “photo diet”…posting fewer pictures than usual until then.

 

 

Yesterday we went to visit the tall ship Elissa and then wandered around the area known as The Strand. Lunch at the Gumbo Bar where Mary had the Seafood Gumbo and I had the Chicken and Sausage Gumbo. Galveston has numerous attractions which fall into the “Touristy” category for which there is no appeal for Mary or myself. So…later this morning we’ll be moving on.

 

 

About one week ago the electric window on the passenger side of the Bronco quit working. I bought a replacement motor at Napa and first thing yesterday morning I had it installed by a body shop next to the VFW.

 

 

Here are some of the photos that I took…

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…

Yesterday we drove the motorhome the about 60 miles from Wadsworth to Freeport, Texas. We’ll move along farther down the road later this morning.

 

 

You may have noticed recently that 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!

 

 

After I had published yesterday’s Blog entry and before we departed, some morning fog created a nice photo opp along the river…

Lying in bean-bag chairs on the floor we watched a 20 minute movie entitled Earth’s Wild Ride. The scene is set many years into the future when people are living on the Moon. A grand father explains to his grandson and grand-daughter while staring at the long away Earth what life was like there long ago…

Eagle Scouts Cycling Across America…

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 5,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 23rd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Thunderbird RV Resort in Monroe, Washington. I’ll depart here June 25th.

 

Sunday afternoon about 4PM, a whole herd of bicyclists and several support vehicles rolled into my current location. Then established an about 18 tent-camping city on a large grassy spot across the street from me.

 

This morning while on my early morning walk, I chatted briefly with one of the gal riders. She told me they represented the Boy Scouts of America and the were on a 65 day, 4,000 mile trip from Seattle, WA to Washington, D.C. Apparently Sunday evening was their first night out of Seattle.

 

Here are some photos I took as they made ready to leave yesterday morning…

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