Our New Summer Home

Princeton, Texas
Clear Lake Park
Weather Condition; High 73 Low 62, Cloudy

We pulled out of Saltwater Flats at 8:54 Thursday morning. We were sad to be leaving our winter home.

We had plenty of friends to tell us good-bye as we left the park.

We decided to drive straight thru to Purtis Creek State Park. The weather was pleasant except for the wind. The wind wasn’t too bad but there were places when it was gusty.

We stopped for fuel one time and stopped to stretch our legs and walk the dogs once.

We arrived at Purtis Creek SP at 4:30 P.M.  Needless to say, we were both worn out. We set up the fiver and went for dinner at Hernandez. Hernandez is a wonderful little family owned restaurant in downtown Eustace.

WOW! We finally had some really great tex-mex. We were stuffed when we waddled out of there.

Back at the fiver, we took our showers and I was in bed by eight.

We stayed an additional day at Purtis Creek SP due to the gusty winds. We didn’t pull out until Monday morning.

We pulled out of Purtis Creek at 11:15 and had a pleasant 109 mile drive to our new home at Clear Lake Park at Lake Lavon.

It’s cold and windy here today. We are all set up.

There was a serious water leak here at the park and the water was turned off when we first arrived.

The plumbers showed up shortly after we did and got the leak repaired. The temperature is going to drop down to the twenties tonight so we won’t hook up the water until tomorrow when it warms up.

It was in the 80’s when we left Rockport and we’ve seen nothing over 60 since we got back in this area!
