Rocky shore on the North Llano
Our site from the river
There's been some rain in TX lately so things were a little damp everywhere. After couple of days in Junction, TX we moved on to Goliad SP near Goliad, TX. We had plans to meet our RV friends Faye N Dave or as they call themselves The Wandering Camels
We met them in IL last year as we prepared to go full time and had a fun time getting to know them. They have been wintering in Port Aransas, TX area and we made it a point to stay close enough to visit with them. We drove about 100 miles from Goliad to their RV park. It was great seeing hem again. After our welcome and a short walk around the park we decided to go for a Beach Buggy ride into Port Aransas for some seafood. Basically a Beach Buggy is a golf cart on steroids. They are even licensed to drive on some of the roads there. It just happened to be foggy and a bit rainy but the buggy had a cove on it. It was also Spring Break weekend but the crowds were light due to the rain.
They took us to a place called Fins Grill and Bar and had a great lunch of fish, calamari, shrimp and oysters.
Faye N Dave
Steal A Fish
I got a nice photo of Steal A Fish that Dave talks about on Facebook and their blog. We had great conversation and Faye gave me some good info on the state park we are in now and as we move into Mississippi. She said the sites here at Village Creek SP in Lumberton, TX were a little tight for a big rig but fortunately for us we came here on a Sunday and most of the sites were open so we got our pick. After our farewell hugs, we headed back to Goliad SP and prepared for our next move. The sites at Goliad in the Karankawa area are pull through with full hook ups.(We reserved one thanks to a tip from Faye a few weeks earlier)
Awning side with foliage
The county fair was going on just down the road and we could hear the announcer each evening for the rodeo.
It rained all the next day after we visited Faye N Dave so we just hung out in the rig with some TV and computers. It did let up for a while so we explored a short trail and viewed the Mission Espirito Del Santo on the grounds.

A little history
That was a few days ago, as I mentioned. We will get to see Faye N Dave again in IL at Bo Wood COE on opening day April 16th and next winter as they will be workamping for a Cal-Am park in Mesa, AZ just a few miles from where we will be again next winter.. Thank you again Faye N Dave for your hospitality and friendship. So here we are at Village Creek SP, got into our back in site with out much difficulty and there is hardly anyone in the park. The weather as finally cleared and it is warm and sunny the past couple of days. We have been on a couple of trails but due to the rains, many of them are flooded over and closed. I did get a couple of projects done on the rubber stripping over the slide outs with some silicone caulking. We'll be here one more day and then we finally leave TX and into Louisiana. Our next stop is Palmetto Island SP near Abbeville, LA. Here are a couple of photos of our site here at Village Creek SP along with a couple of walk in tent camp sites near Village Creek.
This site was long enough for us
Even the truck
Many open sites up the road
Village Creek very full

Well that should get me caught up some. I still need to write a post of our excursion into Palomas, MX with Steve and Debbie but that will have to wait. I should have some more time soon to catch up again. Thanks for reading. See you in Louisiana.
