We were happy to find out that Campbellsville amazon.com co-workers, Peggy and Mick Barnes, were working at Pioneer Beach RV Resort where we were going to “vacation” after two months of gate guarding. It was nice that there was a space right next to them available for us to park.
As we drove into Corpus Christie you could see all the oil refineries. Then it was across a bridge and into Port Aransas. Bridge was way too tall for me; I closed my eyes and hummed.
Pioneer Beach RV Resort is a very pretty and quiet park. Most folks stay here all winter and add flowers, put up patio fencing and generally spruce up their sites. They reserve for the next year and get the same site each year.

The Barnes were so hospitable and drove us all around playing tourist guides during their three days off. Here we are crossing on the ferry into Rockport. I was surprised in the short distance of the ferry ride and also that the ride was free! Wonder who pays the wages and maintenance?
This way, please
We’re afloat with another ferry going past
Off we go with other cars waiting to board
We ate out quite a bit this week enjoying breakfast at the Bakery Cafe in Aransas Pass, San Juan’s Mexican Restaurant-Moby Dick’s-Cancun’s-Sunday Champagne Brunch at Port Royal all in Port A (as the locals call it).
One place I particularly wanted to go to eat is the Boiling Pot in Rockport. For years I’ve read in blogs about the Boiling Pot (Molly Pinner’s and Nick Russell’s) and since Jim and I really like seafood it was a “must” place to dine. And we were not disappointed!
OK, that’s it for today. I’m tired and I’ll finish up tomorrow.
Remember, you are definitely loved!!!
