Once we were set up we took a walk around to see what had changed and who was around. We found Mui of Two To Travel's Phaeton Journeys outside washing their motorhome, with water restrictions in affect Friday is the only day washing of the rigs is allowed. Erin soon came out and we spent a short time catching up and wishing them well on their winter overseas adventure. They'll be getting back about the time we're heading north, since we're both owners here I'm sure our paths will cross again.
Our walk took quite awhile since we kept seeing folks we hadn't seen in 10 months, while we were only here 6 weeks we made good friends whom we've kept up with on Facebook. So while we'd only spent a short time here last year it has felt like we've come home, we are looking forward to our winter here. Kathy invited us over for a chili dinner and we spent a nice evening catching up with her and Jay, thanks again for dinner guys.
Our first Saturday here we went out with a group of folks, old and new friends. It seems there's a younger group who have bought some sites just down from us, most of them are still busy working full time and they use Gulf Waters as a weekend getaway. Many of them are from the San Antonio area so their section of the park has been fondly named San Antonio Row. Dinner out was at a place we'd been before, Stingrays is a sports bar so the local TX teams were on the big screens. Food there was once again good and we enjoyed our time there, afterwards we made a stop at a local watering hole, the Coastal Club where the music was so loud it was hard to hear the person talking next to you.
We've been into Corpus Christi a few times for a variety of things, a trip to Lowe's resulted in a variety of lights for a Christmas display. We have a shed here where we can keep things so the excess lights will stay here for our use when ever we stay here. We thought we'd turn off the lights until after Thanksgiving but everyone wants us to keep them lit every night so guess we will, most are LED so they are cheap to run.
Dave's new smoker, test run on one rack of ribs turned out great.
Getting ready for the holidays, we were going to turn them off until after Thanksgiving but due to popular demand we've kept them on.
Aussie's Travelling the USA in a Fifth Wheeler and it seems we've enjoyed some of the same places. From Ron Dave has learned a few new phrases some that could get him into trouble :) We sure hope our paths cross when they are stateside next time.
The weather has been all over the place, with lows in the 30's and high in the 80's, with calm days and then days where the winds had us rockin' but at least we weren't rollin'.
My brother and family have made it down, they have a house they rent when they are not using it, we haven't celebrated a holiday with Andy since '87. Our son David and daughter in law Laura are due in tonight for a few days, they will be staying with us. Looks like it'll be a good Thanksgiving with lots of family.
Until next time...
