Thursday while biking through the park I saw another bike rider who looked familiar, I knew Ingrid and Al of the blog Live Laugh RV were in the area. Dave spent Friday morning fishing with no luck so
we went for a bike ride. As we came headed into the park who should be biking out but Ingrid and Al. We quickly decided to continue biking and Ingrid showed us some other bird viewing places, we then took a ride around their "rustic" rv resort. We then decided to continue things a few hours later at a watering hole in Fulton. We met around 4pm and headed to Moon Dog in Fulton where we spent an enjoyable couple of hours getting to know each other while participating in happy hour and enjoying some good food. Moon Dog is located where the fishing vessels come in with their days catch, they allow pets at the restaurant and have really good food, Dave thought the oysters were some of the best he'd ever had. Dave and I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Ingrid and Al, with kids the same age and living in the same areas I'm sure we'll see them down the road someday. After a few hours and lots of laughs it was getting cool outside so we called it an evening, in this lifestyle so many folks are of like minds, enjoying life.
Saturday we hung around the Goose Island, Dave fished and caught the largest sheepshead of his season.
Sunday late morning we headed down the road 150 miles to Brazos Bend State Park, it was a rainy windy day but an uneventful ride. Dave said the new truck with its dual rear wheels handled much better in the wind than our previous truck had. We did get to watch the Super Bowl, our first on the road and so very different from our usual over abundance of food and drinks, it was cheese and crackers, homemade pizza and chocolate pudding. I never watch the game for the game for me it's about the commercials and half time.
Brazos Bend State Park is another nice Texas state park, just wish the weather had cooperated with our stay. The sights are large with water and 30amp service, our Verizon jet pack doesn't work well, we could get a bit internet with the smart phone hot spot but not enough to upload photos to the blog. The park has a few ponds that are alligator habitats, with the cold and rainy weather though we never saw any, though there were lots of birds out on Monday but Tuesday they weren't around. If the weather were nicer we could bike many of the roads here and if Dave didn't have a foot issue we could have hiked all we wanted. Definitely a place we want to come back to when the weather is nicer and Dave's foot is better. So our stay has been spent mainly inside and with out good internet this won't get posted till we get to Houston on Wednesday, where I can upload the pictures to it.

Until next time...
I am always amazed that people who have never met before recognize each other by sight. What a fun time. I assume that great picture of the two chairs over looking the water is your patio at Goose Island. Looks fabulous. I want to go to Aransas NWR. Is that good place to stay to do that? 150 miles between spots is right down my alley too. Ah, now I know where all the camels come from.ReplyDelete
I think you'd like Goose Island especially if you could get a bayside site and yes the picture of the chairs is from our site. Aransas NWR is a place we want to visit next year when Dave can walk more, I don't know if there's a closer park but really think you'd like Goose Island.Delete
Loved all your posts from the Rockport/Port Aransas area. We felt like we were home :)ReplyDelete
Hope get back there one winter, we'll be there next winter for sure.Delete
How cool is that to run into each other....what a perfect meet up! Wish I could have been there...nice booty shots! Are you still going to hit Johnny's in March...thinking I read your route changed. Enjoy the RV show....bet you'll see some beauties!ReplyDelete
It was great, have enjoyed our meetings with folks of like minds living this lifestyle. We're still heading to Johny's we'll be there 3/3- 3/9 hope we can catch up then.Delete
So much fun you're having! We can't wait to be "on the road again." February 22, Las Vegas, baby. I hope we meet some more bloggers in our travels. This will be a two-week trip for us. Excitement mounts to get these wheels turning again.ReplyDelete
I'm sure you're excited to get out on the road, safe travels and hope you do meet some bloggers, safe travels.Delete
You guys are the third blog I read that is coming from that area and I it's neat that you ran into one of them. Really enjoyed your photos especially the lounge chair shot.ReplyDelete
It was neat, have enjoyed all of our meets with other bloggers, something about like mindsets I'm sure.Delete
I was just in the process of writing up our meeting and headed over to your blog to get the link and was pleasantly surprised you already wrote about our meeting. It was definitely a fun time and I know our paths will cross again as we'll be traveling around similar locations. Due to the weather, I think we'll return to Phoenix earlier than planned. I'm getting tired of the cold rainy weather. Safe travels :-)ReplyDelete
