Left Livingston around 10:00 this morning and drove to Liverpool where I once lived in 1975.  I wanted to find a fishing spot we used to go to and the house we used to live in.  I think I found the bayou but I think the house was torn down.  The bayou water level was so low it looked like a drainage ditch.  The level must be at least 10 feet below normal.  Texas has sure suffered with the drought this year.

I left there without stopping because there was no place for me to pull the coach over on the side of the road.  I really wanted to bury a time capsule but maybe next time.

I left there and headed for the Freeport area.  Arrived at Surfside Beach around 2:30 and set up.  I am very close to the beach and have a great view of the Gulf which is raging right now.  It's very rough and windy.  There is a front coming through and the temps will be dropping.  No shorts tomorrow.

The view coming down the bridge to Surfside.  Awesome!

My little doggie had not pottied all day so took her for a walk on the beach.  She loved it.  She wanted to run all over the place.  I had to tell her several times to "wait" and she'd give me a look like "why?"

The view from our site.

Hammocks for two?

Nice beach house.

That's me parked right next to the office.

Got back to the coach and ate a very late lunch.  Am now ready to go to bed and it isn't even dark yet.  I woke with a sore throat and now have a fever so I'll take some meds and hit the sack.  Hope to feel better tomorrow.


  1. Hope you feel better tomorrow so you can spend some time on the beach. I'm hoping to be near the beach by the end of the month.

  2. Hi Joe... Thanks, so do I.

    Hi Teri... If you're in the Port Aransas area on the 18th come and join us. We're having a get together of several solo women RVers on the beach. I'll be posting more info as the time nears.

  3. Rest Fluids. Tylenol Cold & Fever AM/PM. Those things really work!

    The surf looks fabulous!

  4. Hi Kim... Thank you for the Rx. My resistance is down and I really need some rest. Driving half the day is not my idea of fun or is it restful. I just want to stay put for a week or two but I'm not to Port Aransas yet. I need to get some of that cold and fever stuff. I think there is a little store up the road.

    The surf is fabulous!

  5. Glad the surf's fabulous! sorry about your yuckiness...

    loved the pictures! Can hardly wait! Plans are on the go... leaving tomorrow sometime. Where after leaving baby off? I dunno... ;)

  6. Hey Carolyn...Here's a Bon Voyage to you. Be safe and enjoy!

    Hi Michael... yes, it is home (sort of) as I was born here and lived for a time as an adult.

    I can't imagine a better view than where I am today. Sitting on my sofa and watching the waves roll in. It's great!

  7. Oh, u have the most beautiful site!! Rest, get better, the ocean will soothe and heal :) Take Care...

  8. Hi Loree... Yes, I agree about the ocean being soothing and healing. If I had to get sick, this is the best place I could have chosen to rest up and get better. It's a small park and not yet full. A bit over budget for me but it's only for 2 nights. I will probably stay here again on my way back home.
