Nov 25, 2014 - Highlands, TX (San Jacinto Riverfront RV Resort)

November 25/14 - January 24/15 We headed west on I-10 to San Jacinto Riverfront RV Resort where our good friend Gabby got us a site close to her RV. We are a stones throw away from her. We were invited to Lynn and Howie’s new place for Thanksgiving. It was a great day getting to know the family better. Howie deep fried the turkey and we had great side dishes. Mike and I went to see Penguins of Madagascar (2014) it lived up to all the other movies. I took gabby to two of her doctor’s appointments and then went for lunch at Golden Corral...

Oct 15, 2013 - Heading Home Through Texas

We now begin our journey home. I always have mixed feelings at this point of the trip. On the one hand, I don't want the adventure to come to an end. But on the other hand, I am anxious to see family and friends who we have missed so dearly. Once this "wagon train" is headed west, I tend to get "barn sour" and I want Doug to set the gears at full speed ahead. But I mustn't wish my life away. I will restrain myself and enjoy these last few weeks on the road.

Apr 21, 2013 - Highlands, TX - San Jacinto Riverfront RV Resort

It was a rough 254 miles from Baton Rouge to Highlands, TX, just East of Houston. This section of I-10 is very rough and beats you to death in a motorhome. We arrived at the San Jacinto Riverfront RV Resort a little after noon and was set up shortly thereafter. This is a very nice RV park and we have a full hookup, 50 amp, pull-through with cable. Verizon is strong and the roof antenna picked up the satellite easily. As soon as we were set up we headed for the San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Park marking the sight where Sam Houston...

Mar 3, 2013 - Highlands, Texas (San Jacinto Riverfront RV Resort)titled

March 3 - 24/13 Mike and I left our friends in Bandera and travelled on I-10 towards Houston to spend some time with Gabby and our Houston friends. We were able to get a site at the San Jacinto RV Resort thanks to Stacey and Gabby. We got a nice site close to the river and had a great view of the sunsets over the water. Mar 4 Gabby, Lynnie and I went to Houston to shop for a dress, we were able to find one in the first shop. I like it and now I have to find accessories for it. Lynnie had a doctor’s appointment so we drove her to that and...

November 3 - December 2/12 We got up early to have a continental breakfast and went down the road to Big 10 Tire to get a new tire, within an hour we were back on Hwy. 59 heading south to San Jacinto Riverfront RV Resort in Highlands Texas (near Houston). Sunday, I got up early to pick up Gabby to go to the Houston International Quilt Show. It was great fun because Gabby is not a quilter she was amazed at all the quilts and things to buy to do our quilting. There were so many quilts that blew my mind. I really got inspired and now have a...

Nov 6, 2011 - Texas Transit

This was our first day in Texas. We stayed on I10 until we got to the Houston area. I decided to take a detour to see the San Jacinto Battleground historic site and the battleship, USS Texas. For the history buffs, the monument commemorates the 1836 battle that the outnumbered Texas Army defeated the General Santa Ana and Mexican army to gain independence from Mexico. The monument is 567 ft. tall and is the world's tallest stone monument. What else would expect from Texas! The USS Texas is an old WWI battleship that also saw service in WWII...

Nov 4, 2011 - Highlands, Texas (San Jacinto Riverfront RV Resort)

November 4/11 - December 11/11 We drove on I-59 to San Jacinto Riverfront RV Resort in Highlands, Texas. It is a lovely park. Saturday, I finally made it to the Houston International Quilt Show after many many years of wanting to go... and being told I have to go to it by many of my quilting friends. It was HUGE and well organized. I was able to find vendors that sold photocopy material to make labels and photo quilts. I also was able to purchase my EZI sewing table that I’ve been eyeing for a while, after seeing Gail’s. The quilt show was...

Dec 5, 2009 - Highlands, TX

We have arrived at San Jacinto Riverfront RV in Highlands, TX which is just east of Houston. We were a little late getting on the road this morning because we had to remove over 1 inch of ice off the roofs of the slides before we could bring them in. That just shouldn't happen when you are just north of New Orleans. We will be here for just 1 night and then onto San Antonio - one of our favorite cities.
