Beach Time! Camping at Galveston Island State Park

Ahhhh! We finally made it to Galveston Island State Park where we are camping just steps from the waters of the Gulf of Mexico.  The campground is a narrow strip behind the sand dunes, yet very close to the sand beach and water. There are three loops with water, electric, shelter with picnic table, and fire ring at each site, and flush toilets and showers at the first and third loop.

Visiting the Kids and Grandkids

We left the Rainbow’s End Escapee Park on Friday morning and headed to Houston to visit our daughter, son-in-law, and grandkids. It was an easy ride through Houston this time and we got to their driveway in record time where we set up the coach. They had a 50 amp outlet installed to make our stays on the driveway comfortable. We prefer to stay in our own little house so that we can stay with the pets some of the time because our daughter has some serious allergies to them.  The grandkids love coming into the trailer, however, because it’s like a little playhouse to them. It has lots of fun buttons to turn lights on and off, a big TV to watch movies on, and of course pets to play with.

Rainbow’s End Escapee’s Park

It turns out that they were scheduled to arrive at Escapee’s Rainbow’s End in Livingston, TX as we were heading down to Houston. Bingo!

Daingerfield State Park, Texas

I’m in Paradise! It is January 31st and I’m sitting in my outdoor recliner, in my campsite, in a t-shirt and capris, adoring the view of the lake and trees only steps in front of me. We’re in the premium loop which only consists of 10 sites, pull through, near the water, with full hook ups and no one else is here but us! Peace, quiet, and nature at it’s finest; who could ask for more?
