After several days of traveling through Texas (it takes a long time) we are settled in for a week at the Turtle Bayou RV Park in Wallisville TX. In the office was a black kitten with little white paws running and playing. The lady is trying to find a good home for her and if we were not filled up with our two I could see her joining our family.
We were not able to be parked near the bayou (and the gators) due to the recent rain and flooding. Our consolation prize was being put on a concrete slab near the office. I can live with that since our stay here is more about resting, cleaning and catching up on laundry anyway.

The internet here is free and actually very fast...hallelujah! Most of the park is inhabited by people working on the oil wells so they're gone most the day so it's pretty quiet. We'll see what the weekend brings with them.

Our next door neighbors are a retired couple and the mother-in-law. The ladies came over to say hi and she wanted to see what it was I was putting on the steering wheel. She'd not seen a steering wheel table before so I invited them in for a look and demonstration.
She reciprocated with a tour of their 43 foot motorhome and handed me two slices of freshly baked, still warm, pumpkin bread with a glazed topping. I think I'm going to like it here!
George and Gracie are thrilled to romp about on green grass again instead of sand, gravel and dirt. Everything here is so green! Such a shocker after living the life of a desert nomad. We are close to I-10 so there is a lot of highway noise, but it's like a white noise to us and I don't mind it at all. I prefer that to sporadic sounds from trains.
We had an early supper of sausage and pancakes followed by two much needed showers. What a difference it makes to be clean and relaxed.

The following day Left Brain took off for a nice long bike ride and I'm playing with the computer and catching up on my reading. I plan to clean out some things and carry the laundry over since it's right next door.
We'll probably take time to visit some family in the Houston area since it's only about an hour away and we'll take a run into Galveston for a visit sometime during our stay.
Full hookups and fast internet - I'm in Heaven. Now if they just had pickleball courts.
Long Live the Queen of Texas (Yes Jean...it's me...not you)
