"Could I have this dance for the rest of my life?" - Anne Murray

Moving South Along the Texas Gulf Coast.




We've moved out of Louisiana and are heading toward Corpus Christi, making a couple of stops along the way. We both found ourselves feeling really happy as we drove into Texas. It felt good to be back. I danced along in my car, listening to my Texas playlist. (Have I mentioned that I have a playlist for every state we've visited? Texas is one of my favorites, featuring George Strait and Lyle Lovett, among others.)

First we made a short stop in Beaumont at Hidden Lake RV Park - a very pleasant medium-sized private park. Last night we stopped at Brackenridge Recreational Complex, in Edna, where we will be for about a week. It's a large regional park on the shores of Lake Texana, with lots of space, a marina, hiking/biking trails, a paintball park, nature preserve and even an enormous state-of-the-art rodeo arena.

 We have a site right on the lake with a great view. 



When we arrived it was very windy but warm, so I took a walk to take some sunset pictures.



This view looks across the water to the nature preserve.

It stayed warm overnight and when I woke up early it was calm and warm, 
so I jumped up and went for a misty morning walk.



This is the paintball park, empty and eerie.



As the sun came up it was still warm, but within about 10 minutes the wind picked up 
and it got wicked cold.  I hurried home.


Now it's still cold and even more windy, so once we got our propane tank filled 
we both hunkered down to stay warm inside for the rest of this now grey winter day.
