Apr 12, 2013 - BBQ & Anahuac WLR

We started the day out with delicious BBQ at Tony’s in Anahuac. After we were all full we headed out for a day of exploring. We took Jerry and Jared to the Anahuac Wildlife Refuge and drove the 2-1/2 mile loop. We counted a total of 16 alligators for the day. We saw a ton of birds too, this place is definitely a birding paradise. After exploring Anahuac, we drove to High Island and walked the path to the rookery. The rookery is packed with breeding birds, we saw hundreds of spoonbills and egrets and more breeding. They have huge nest. The...

Mar 2, 2012 - Knick,knack, paddy whack

The city we are staying in is Anahauc, pronounced Anna-wack with the accent on Anna. So now we all know. We had a very nice day. Lazed around in the morning until the sun broke through the clouds about noon. Shirley is feeling better so we took a bike ride. We tried to go south to ride to the gulf but the winds knocked us back. We made it to the boat ramps and there was a nature walk into the marsh. We looked for alligators but didn't see any. Then we decided to bike into town just a mile. Small town America but it was very neat. We stopped...

Mar 1, 2012 - Drove my Chevy to the levee

Well actually it's our Ford F-350 and we are 200 yards past the levee of the Trinity River shed at Ft. Anahauc TX (near Baytown). Shirley was a little under the weather so we decided to skip Houston and only do about 100 miles. We looked in our AAA camping book and found this park which was an old fort put up by the Mexicans when Texas was theirs. No fort left but plenty of historic signs. Great park with ball fields used by the local high school baseball and softball teams. I went up to watch them practice and strolled the grounds. There...

Apr 17, 2010 - Turtle Bay, Texas

We spent two days on the river just relaxing and getting things in the rv organized. The campground is next the the interstate, very convenient. But the nearest town, Anahuac, is 6 miles away. It is "very" small. Peppy's friend is a black cat that knew how long his leash was and stayed just out of his reach. Got to see our first Texas longhorn. I didn't get a picture.

2010 Summer Trip

Nov 7, 2007 - Anahuac, Texas

The last stop on our travels this year was Anahuac, Texas where we stayed for about four days. Anahuac (Ann-a-hawk) is east of Houston on the Galveston Bay and Rick and Cheyenne were able to fish for a few days. He caught several catfish and black drum and really enjoyed himself. We left Anahuac on Friday, November 9 and arrived in Duluth at my parents house on the afternoon of Saturday, November 10. It's hard to believe that we've been full-timing for a year. This first year has been so exciting and enjoyable! We've seen so many...

Oct 18, 2007 - San Antonio, TX to Anahuac, TX

We left San Antonio on a bright, sunny day with plenty of blue sky, headed east on I-10. About 70 miles or so east of San Antonio we passed the exit for Gonzales. This is where the relief troops for The Alamo were traveling from. Not so far by truck, but a long way on horseback. We drove through Houston and about half way to Beaumont, turned south to our overnight destination in Anahuac (pronounced Anawack), the Alligator Capital of Texas. We spent the night in a small campground on Trinity Bay. It was lovely, and no, we didn't see any...
