Rockport was a great stop and a place where we could ride our bikes to the beaches and also to the little Town. Great coastal bird life. We sat having a coffee at a Café one day and along came Earl and we got chatting. Turns out he is an alternative therapist and to cut a long story short, we went to this house the next day for some treatment – extreme massage is the only way to describe it
Oh yes, one more thing about Rockport. The Park there was big and organized with lots of Winter visitors staying the season. They held a ‘garage sale’ one day and we are now the proud owners of THREE bikes – bought a second hand town type one, very girly, with a basket on the front – well you have to have somewhere to keep your mascara and hairspray when you’re on a bike ride!!!
Next stop, Mustang Island State Park where we parked one side of the sand dunes and the beach spread for MILES the other. We did some serious walking and bike riding there and walking and riding on sand is not that easy! Excellent - loved it.
Then, Aransas Pass and the campground was close to a little fishing harbour. Again, the Winter residents were so kind and friendly to us even offering to drive us to Corpus Christi one day as Kevin really wanted to see the USS Lexington, an old US Aircraft Carrier which is now a museum
Off then en route to Houston and of course, a big shop in preparation for our next guests. How I love a Costco shop!! – I could spend the day. They sell everything and we bought a ‘teach yourself French’ course in preparation for our Europe travels – long time ago when I achieved ‘O level’ French. We stayed at a place called Traders Village, a Town Park, which was fascinating as the next morning an enormous market had grown around us – and I mean enormous, selling everything, even Tazer Guns! Lucky for Kevin we had to leave to get to the Airport and Anna and John or it could have been a long day for him!! – shopping opportunities.
