Road trip to the Gulf!

LOCATION:  Galveston Island Park, near Rockport, TX.  On the Gulf of Mexico, about 4 hours NE of our house.

CAMPGROUND:  Great park!  Electricity and water at site.  Picnic table inside concrete shelter.  $22/night.  No fire pit.  Clean restrooms and showers.  5 stars out of 5

WEATHER:  Cloudy and windy.  High 75

Packing for a 5-night camping trip is almost the same as packing for a 5-month one.  Lots of stuff to haul into Joy.  After a very busy morning, we took off about 11:00.  We are traveling with our friends Irene and Rob.  We were a little caravan, with them following us. 

We stopped here for lunch.  A great little place with a large parking lot (very much needed and appreciated).  It is out in the middle of nowhere.  It is a BBQ and seafood place.  George and I split a brisket taco which was huge and yummy. 

We arrived at the campground around 4:00.  We are so lucky to have been able to reserve two sites together right on the bayfront.  During the summer, it is booked up way in advance. 

DINNER:  Since we had a big lunch, we scrapped the original menu and just had soup and salad.  Irene made a nice, warming lentil soup and I provided a Greek salad.  We ate in their motor home.  We will probably swap back and forth during this trip.
