The following morning we checked out of the motel and drove the RV up Seawall Blvd. and picked a spot to park next to the walkway beside the water. We have seen several other RVs parked there and Samantha said she had seen them stay there for several days. There are no signs saying you can’t park overnight so that is what we are going to do unless someone tells us we have to leave. We are right on the main road next to the beach so when cars and trucks go by you can feel the coach move. I’m running the generator to run the A/C as it is very hot and humid here. I haven’t run the generator much so it was a bit hard starting, seems to be running okay now … l hope it keeps running smoothly.
We took a ride around the Island and over to another island to see the sights. Hurricane Ike tore this place apart and the devastation was huge, lots of homes were destroyed, or damaged, many businesses were destroyed also. Now there are many new homes and lots of work has been done to bring the area back to what it was before Ike. We have seen lots of fish jumping in the water and Dolphins breaching just of the beach. We had a cool beer at a Tiki bar and eat some good sea food. The sea food here in Texas is fine, the fishing is good as the oil spill hasn’t effected the Texas coast …yet!
Tomorrow the plan is is to head north, hopefully we will be north of Dallas by tomorrow night, if not “oh well” 🙂 We will night camp somewhere and continue our journey north the following day. Oh! We are headed to the South Dakota in case you wanted to know ….
