We are now solidly placed in Texas. After a overnighter in a quiet road stop we found ourselves at our first RV park. Boondocking is not impossible in Texas but certainly not easy. Mix that with the weather - hot and humid - and we acknowledged prior to leaving that deciding to go to Texas would mean campgrounds.
We had planned to stay at Tips Park in Three Rivers, which appeared to be a city ran facility. However, when we drove in it did not feel comfortable. If you have RV'd much you will know what I mean - sometimes a place does not feel right. There were 2 RVs in the park, one was not habitable and the other was questionable. Any how we ended up just west of town at Naylor's RV Park and it was great. Being in this location allowed us to visit a vacation highlight and personal favorite - San Antonio River Walk.
When we were "done" in the San Antonio area we headed to the ocean! We wanted to stay at Padre Island National Seashore - Malaquite Campground, but they don't take reservations. We scoped the place out ahead of time and to ensure a site we actually left our campground in Three Rivers a day early and pulled into Malaquite knowing there was an opening.
We had such a great time in this area! So many beach walks, so many happy hours with Ivan and new friends Rod and Karen, and a visit to SpaceX!!
Although we were not lucky enough to see a launch, being able to drive close, walk up t the area, and freely take photos was well worth the day.
That seems like enough excitement for one post so you'll have to wait!
