As I sit here and write this we have officially been on the road for one month today. Did it start out as planned? The short answer is a big fat NO!! Today was the first day since we left St. Pete that we had any sun. Besides the lack of sun and basically crap weather, we got sick, got stuck in Louisiana because of the worse weather in Texas. We were grateful for Bayou Segments State Park for their hospitality while we were forced to stay. However, we were finally able to leave our Louisiana home of 2.5 weeks and venture west. After a long, uncomfortable ride we made it to our home for the night in Beaumont, Texas. I will never complain the roads in Florida again. I don’t think it would hurt them to use a little concrete or asphalt every now and then. I digress, we stayed our first Harvest Host, Pour Brother’s Brewery. The beer as well as the hospitality was great and we spent the night in a level lot. Beaumont is a very cute little town and is home of the largest fire hydrant the is spotted like a Dalmatian. We got up early and headed to San Antonio where we had reservations at and RV park. We spent 4 days there.
Honestly the weather was not great but for the most part it rained very little so we made due. The first two nights we needed AC and the last night we needed heat. The campground was interesting With its miles of trails and even had some elevation. The neighbors were horses, cows and chickens. On Sunday we met Deb and Larry (#gettin_there) and we went to Government Canyon State Park where we did a nearly 7 mile hike and saw dinosaur prints. We highly recommend doing that if you are in the area. Then on Monday the weather was cold and blustery but we went to do the Missions anyways. We went to all 4 that are run by the park service and went to Alamo. There was no charge to go in the Alamo like we heard there was, because We didn’t do the guided tour. We did not find the Alamo as impressive as all the others. After the Alamo we walked down to River Walk. We decided to do the river boat tour. There was one other couple on the boat plus our guide. It was so worth the $ 13.50 each we spent on it.
So the musts of to dos while visiting San Antonio are the Missions, take the cruise on the river boat and go to the Government Canyon Stare Park and check out the dino prints.
Come back next week where I tell you all about Amistad National Recreation Area. Until next week give me a like and follow me.
