Catching Up

 

  Our last blog entry was 1/11/10 and today is 6/15/10 so it’s been awhile.

   After we left the Florida west coast we went  east to check out another RV. I was just what we wanted and after all the deals were made, papers signed and bank approvals the banks changed there minds because we have no permanent address. Even though Emily has been good to us we were ready for that extra 7 feet. We were disappointed and down so we decided it was time to leave Florida. On 1/29/10 we went up to Ocala National Forrest to say hi to Carol & Ev. They were camp hosting there. Plans are right now to travel with them to Alaska next summer. We decided to leave via US98 along the gulf coast. We stopped at Ho Hum Campground in Carabelle Fl. We ended up spending a week there. We pulled in to the site and all the view out our front window was the gulf and beautiful sunrises. From there we moved to a SKP park in Summerdale Al. They were celebrating Mardi Gras  while we were there with dinners, parades and entertainment. From there we moved over to St. Bernard state park just south of New Orleans. We have been to the Mississippi River and taken a steam boat down toward the mouth but I wanted to see how close we could get by car so we took  SR23 down to Venice. I’m so glad we did as that part of La. is now being destroyed by Corporate Greed. We followed US90 thru La and we did so enjoy the food. We made our way over to the Tx gulf coast. We stopped at Palacios so we could go to the Hotel Blessing to Sunday dinner. It’s one of our favorite places to eat. We moved down to Rockport for a week. We were disappointed as because of the cold winter the shrimp moved to deep water and were not as plentiful as they usually are.

   I’m using Windows Writer for the 1st time so I’m going to publish this for today

Glad to see you blogging again. Sorry about the rig...don't they know how many of us don't have permanent physical addresses? I use Live Writer also and really enjoy it.
