Saturday September 18, 2010-Moving Day Lake Tonkawa RV park to Serendipity Bay RV Park

We didn't begin to start moving until after 8 o'clock this morning. Again, we don't have that far to go today, so there isn't a real need to get up and on the road. There was a rally in the park that was leaving today and I heard our neighbor out at 4AM, slamming doors and moving around and when I did get up to look, after 7:30, they were gone. Of course, I don't know how far they were going so there may have been a very good reason for them to be up and packing.
We still pulled out at 10 o'clock, so all was well.

It began raining on us on our way down Hwy. 288 and it rained on us all the way into the park. It had about stopped when we arrived, so Stella got chatty with the lady in the office, long enough that it began to storm on us by the time we tried to get back into the truck. We just stayed in the office until the rain slacked up some before going out to drive to our site. We ran inside and put the slides out until the rain stopped enough for me to go back out and get the setup chores done. We arrived a few minutes after 3 but it took us until 5 to get fully set up. I had to change shirts twice while setting up, but I got it done.

We stayed in for the rest of the night. We had talked about going to the grocery store but I found the USA channel on the channel selection, so I stayed in my chair and got caught up on NCIS. I haven't gotten my fix since we left Colorado except for the regular channel show that only comes on once a week.

It continued to rain off and on all afternoon and into the evening, so it would have been a miserable time to go out and we didn't need anything bad enough to get out. I can tell you it made for some very good sleeping!

We are looking forward to a very relaxing week here in Palacios. We are very sorry that we missed Stella's family reunion but there's always next year. Of course, we don't know at this point where we might be but we'll try to get here.

The lady in the office really tried to sell us on staying here for the winter. She said they will have an activities director and crafts for the women. She didn't say anything about activities for the men, so I guess they're on their own for fun. We have always liked this place but its a long way to a large store. The largest city, Victoria, is 47 miles away. We'll think about it and keep it in mind but for now, we're staying at Rayford.

So long.

Can't beat Rayford for being close to not one, but three Wal-Marts! What more can an RVer want ... not to mention we're not too far away. Looking forward to spending time together this winter.
