Yesterday we were feeling like drowned rats as we stowed stuff away in the misty rain at Goose Island…Every darn cord that touched the ground had to be wiped down with a wet rag to get the icky wet sand off. I got everything pulled in on the inside first before I went out to help Mr. Cheerful . Once we started tromping around in the mud, we didn’t want to go back inside the Hiker for ANY reason..As you RV’ers’ know, it’s hard to keep those carpets looking new for very long, if at all!! We finally had got hooked up, dumped and “squished” on down the road toward Goliad. That weather man was a big liar..He said the sun would come out yesterday morning…NOT!…It rained all the way to Goliad (which is only about 1 1/2 hours)…. It did settle into a very fine mist for us to set up in…The upside to all this moisture, is that Goliad has lifted their Burn Ban..
Here is our site…all set up for the next 2 weeks…
..All sites in this loop are full hook-up and pull through…AND level, so we didn’t have to pull up on blocks..This means that my last step out the camper door is just the right height for vertically challenged people with very short legs..! Hey, would ya just LOOK at that green grass. McGyver and I agree that we have never seen this park so green …
We are on the loop that has the Mission Espiritu Santo just adjacent to the campers…If that link works like I want it to, you will see a short video on U-Tube about this mission…If it doesn't work , try this link for Mission information ..
I will post photos of the inside soon. We are also just a short walk from the Presidio La Bahia , known for the Goliad Massacre..You will learn lots from these links, and I will give a short walking tour of my own soon. Here are a few photos of the outside of the Presidio..
This town is rich in history, and you can bet that I will be touching every old wall and old artifact they will let me…I just LOVE old things…(that’s why I love McGyver!)…Just wait until he reads this blog…HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY, DEN…LOVE YOU!!
I walked with McGyver this AM…it went OK..I figure, what the He—! My feet are sore no matter what I do, so why should I miss walking with Dennis?? After all, I CAN still walk!…I refuse to sit on my behind…and riding my bike by myself is getting quite boring…I have no one to race with!
I need to welcome another brave follower, heyduke50..HEY DUKE!! Get in the truck, but ya gotta fight for a window seat!!
I am finding myself having trouble sitting in front of a computer screen for any length of time lately…My creativity level is at a new all time low, and in order to keep this thing flowing, I just may have to cut it back to twice a week..That is , unless something earth shattering happens to blog about…like winning the lottery, or …hmmm…Den and I going out for a candlelight dinner …Bear with me…I am trying very hard to work this out, keeping myself happy, yet still spending more time being outside, creating new adventures (without ending up in jail)!! Thanks to all for tolerating me!
