El Campo and Beaumont, Texas

We left Tropic Winds RV Park in Harlingen, Texas, Tuesday morning and got to the Elk’s Club in El Campo, Texas, by early afternoon.  The club was suppose to be open from 4-7 p.m. and have 15 amp electric available.

Well, 4 p.m. came and went as did 5, 6 and 7 p.m. and no one showed up, so we just spent the night in their parking lot anyway.

Breakfast was coffee and kolaches at the local Bu'cees. The drive to Beaumont was uneventful…just the way we like it.

Poncho fell asleep on Jim’s leg for most of the trip….Poncho has to always be touching either Jim or I when he sleeps.

 

 

 

 

 

Now we are at the Elk's Club in Beaumont. Since we are only 137 miles from Abbeville, LA we might just spend another night here because we can't get into Betty's till Friday anyway.  This is a nice RV park the Elk’s have here.  There are about 15-20 full hookup sites…you park on grass and they have a cement pad as a little patio beside you.

Marty Cassidy drove down from Livingston to visit and have dinner with us.

We haven’t seen Marty since the deserts outside of Yuma, Arizona, last winter.  Marty is another person we seem to see once or twice a year somewhere during our travels.  He is also part of the Escapees RV Club Class of 2007, so we’ve all been on the road six years now.

This Elk’s Club opens at 4 p.m. also, but this time I called them ahead of time last night so I know there will be someone here. We’ll go in and have a complimentary drink and pay $10 a night for our stay.  Then I finish up dinner.  I’ve already made the base for Shrimp E'toufee. All I have to do is add the shrimp and cook up a batch of rice.

Want to come over and join us?  We have plenty.

Remember, you are loved.
