A pre-retirement couple vacation camping as we consider full time RVing
Mustang Island State Park
It’s been a while since the last blog post. That’s because we haven’t gone anywhere. It’s just too hot in Central Texas for camping. However, we couldn’t let Labor Day weekend pass without taking out the rig. We camped at Mustang Island State Beach.
We arrived on Thursday before the holiday weekend rush and had the beach to ourselves. The campground is just a row of spots with the dunes to protect you from the constant wind, but it was clean and quiet.
Surprisingly, there were spots open all weekend – never filled up. We took a drive on the beach in Port Aransas.
Our nav verified we were On the Bch.
As we were exploring Port A we came upon a fishing pier with some pretty tame pelicans.
And a blue heron in flight.
It started to rain so we continued our explorations in the Jeep. As we watched this tanker come into the ship channel, Mary Lou noticed dolphins riding the bow wave. You have to look closely!
I blew it up as much as I could to prove it was really there.
Mostly we hung out at the beach. That’s what you do there. The water is really warm. Nothing like the chilly So Cal beaches we’re use to.
That’s all for now. Heading to Colorado soon. Watch for the posts!
