We arrived here at Gulf Water RV Resort late morning on Monday, we are in an end site so we have no on on our door side. For now the site on the other side is empty, though we hear that the park is full January through March, we have a large site with a pond with ducks for our amusement. The price is a little higher than other parks around, it's right on Mustang Island, but they have cable and internet so we will put ours on hold which will make the cost much more reasonable. We'll be here until January 27th, we'll make some plans while here as to where we are headed next.
Monday after getting settled we headed to the beach for a short walk.
Tuesday morning found us at Mustang Island State Park trying to catch some fish, after an hour or so I left Dave there and headed to the post office, I still hadn't mailed our Christmas cards. Found the post office and a HEB grocery store so stopped at both and then went back to find Dave. He had caught a few sheephead so I guess it was a successful venture.
After lunch we took the bikes on the beach, we ended up riding about 8 miles just enjoying the afternoon, so glad we are here and not back in VT where they woke up to -18 temps. Our afternoon ended with the Happy Hour (or two) where we met a lot of really nice folks, looks like lots of fun in store for the next 6 weeks.
Wednesday Dave headed to the state park to fish again and I headed to the laundry room, one of the few negatives I've found here is there are only 2 washers and 2 dryers. At 8am though I was the only one there, by the time I was done there was a waiting line for the machines. Afterwards I attended a meeting for the Christmas Eve party, should be a fun time with lots of food. We decided to look at what lots were available for next winter, we have to be back in AZ in October so looks like we'll be spending time out here again next winter. Since it doesn't cost anything to make a reservation we went ahead and signed up for 3 months, the site we're on isn't available next year so we found another one that we think we'll like just as much. If we change our minds we just have to let them know a month ahead and there's no penalty.
