Thanksgiving and Recliners

Rockport, Texas
Saltwater Flats RV Resort
Weather Condition; High 85 Low 62, Sunny

We had a great Thanksgiving here at Saltwater Flats RV Resort. We had a pot luck lunch. About twenty people showed up and there was a lot of really good food.

After lunch there was a Hen Party!

There aren’t very many winter Texans at this park.  A few of the winter people didn’t join us for lunch. Some had other plans and some stayed in.

Seems like most of the sites are weekenders. There are a few sites that are still empty. Some winter Texans don’t migrate until after the holidays.

Today was the left-over luncheon. Almost as many people showed up for the left-overs.

Dawn and I drove over to Corpus Christi today. We wanted to check out the half price recliners at World Market. You looked at them before and liked the fact they are small recliners with low backs. World Market was having a black Friday sale and the recliners were half price.

We got all geared up to fight the crowds and the traffic. We left around 8 this morning.  We arrived at World Market about 8:45 and parked right in front of the store. We went in and there at the front sat the floor display for the recliner. There was a couple looking at it.  We finally got our chance to try out the recliner and we both thought it was comfortable.

We went straight to the cashier and paid for 2 recliners! The cashier said it was funny that we were buying 2 because they only had 3.  Glad we got there when we did!

We tied the 2 large boxes in the bed of the truck and drove back home. They look really nice and are very comfy too. 

The forecast is calling for rain, so we currently have 4 recliners in our living-room. It’s tight but we can manage until tomorrow morning.
