Monday February 18, 2013-Moving Day-Buckhorn Lake Resort to Ancient Oaks RV Park and Campground

We got up about 7 and began packing up to leave. I did a little visiting as people pulled out but still made decent time in getting things ready to go. I was ready before 9, but of course, I had to wait for the inside to be finished. We pulled out about 9:45 or about 45 minutes later than we had wanted. We only have about 250 miles or so to go today, so it will be okay.

We stopped at a Subway in Floresville but it turned out to be a bad decision. Stella didn't like the sandwich she got but I liked mine. And beside that, they didn't have coffee, which made her even more unhappy. I tried to save the day by stopping at a service station at the next little town and bought her some coffee but she didn't like that either. It was too strong, or had a burnt taste, but mine was fine. I guess it just wasn't my day.

We made good time to Rockport but then had a bit of adventure in finding this park. We had the park address in the GPS but it took us down a back street and almost took us down a dead end street. Stella called and got directions to the park but then there was more drama when we had to wind ourselves into the driveway. At least this is a Passport America park and we stayed here for half price or less than $50 for our three day stay! It made it all worth while. We got in and settled and later met our neighbor, Jack. He told us about his trip to Alaska last summer. We would love to make that trip one day but there are many other places on our bucket list to visit before we go to Alaska.

Our friends Don and Monica came in later in the afternoon. We made plans to go to Aransas Pass tomorrow with them for our breakfast meeting. We are looking forward to seeing more old friends and some new ones as well. Pictures to follow.

So long.
