Friday was a dreary rainy day that we spent inside, our evening though was highlighted with a dinner invite from our friends Jackie and DuWayne. After a wonderful dinner of homemade chicken noodle soup we decided on a game of spades to entertain us for awhile, I am happy to report the women soundly trounced the guys. While walking home we noticed that there was someone staying in the MH that has sat for 5+ years.
Saturday was a beautiful day which was spent sitting in the sun, Dave went fishing for a bit to no avail. Our group was entertained by watching the new owner of the POS MH get some prelim work done on the process of getting it out of the park.
Sunday came and it was another beautiful day, around 9am a truck pulled in, the big rig mechanics were here to get the MH. By 10am we had turned our drive into the cheering section, as the day wore on some progress was made, a slide that hadn't moved in 3 years was in, he fuel was changed out and other such things, but still there were problems. All day long we watched waiting for the big moment, around 5:30pm it was determined new fuel lines were needed, the boss headed to Aransas Pass but with a long wait at the ferry didn't get back till around 7:30 so finishing the project was put off until the next morning.

Monday morning Jackie and I had plans to head to Zumba class, we talked with the mechanics who said it would be a few hours before the POS moved, so off we headed to class. After class on we took a cool down lap around part of the park, as we get to the welcome center we see the POS MH driving out of the park. We joined Dave, DuWayne and some other friends in the blustery winds to watch the mechanics load the MH onto a trailer for it's travels to Zapata.
And the crowds came back for the finale

The rest of the day was taken up with preparation for our imminent departure on Tuesday, with the temps suppose to drop over night we wanted to get as much done outside as we could. We took one last walk around the park saying goodbye to the many friends we have made here, while we are sad to be leaving most of them will be back next winter and as we all know time does fly so it won't be long till we see them again. Our evening ended with dinner out with some of the closer friends we've made, this wasn't goodbye time though as we are all meeting for another dinner out on Thursday in the Rockport area.
Until next time...
