Fun, Food, and Friends

After a slow start to the day, we decided to take a trip over to Goose Island. Ever since we took Ellie and Jim to see the big tree, Angel Oak, in Charleston, S.C., they have told us there was a big tree in Rockport, TX. So today, we went to see the Goose Island Big Tree.

This is the Angel Oak in Charleston, S.C.

Then we drove over to the State Park.

We looked at the RV sites where Gordon and Sandra will be staying next week when they arrive from the Port Lavaca area.

Then we visited with a few of the residents of Goose Island...

It was then time to head back to the RV park and get our food ready for the pot luck tonight.

Afterwards, Troy, Leann, and their two children came by to visit with us. They are part owners of this RV park and Leann was one of our daughter's college roommate from Texas A&M. It was nice to see them. I am sure that we will see them several times while we are here.

Stayed tuned for the next adventure!


  1. State Park looks really nice. I think I will look it up. Have a great day

  2. Yes, Goose Island is much better than Mustang Island State Park. If you were thinking about making a drive other there, I would skip it....
