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
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.
The motorhome is parked at the 1,086 acre Sam Houston Jones State Park about 12 miles north of the city. We are here to enjoy Mardi Gras and will depart on February 13th.

Yesterday we started out to explore the historical area of Lake Charles and take photos of some of the old mansions. We didn’t make it. Since her arrival in Harlingen, Texas about five weeks ago she has been wanting to buy a painting…she’s an art buff and collector. She’s been complaining…”I should have bought that one in Port Isabel…I should have bought that one in Galveston”. She made up for it yesterday…the day was spent looking for a painting to buy and she ended up buying three!
I’m not allowed to show you a photo of the paintings she bought because she wants to keep them a secret until they are hanging in her home. I’m also not allowed to tell you what she paid for them.
So here are some of the photos that I took yesterday while painting shopping. I won’t tell you which one it is…but one of the photos is of one of the paintings she bought. Since I’m not telling you which one…I’m not really telling, am I? 🙂

Here’s a mural on the side of a building commemorating 2012’s two-hundred year celebration…
After an exhausting day of painting shopping we ended our day at Steamboat Bill’s Rated by USA Today as one of the top 10 eating places in the nation. I had the shrimp plate and Mary had the Gumbo.
More Mardi Gras stuff on tap for today!
Enjoying beautiful area paintings is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!
