The rv has been patiently waiting for attention since the end of last May. Anticipating a busy summer, we took it out for a test run, and everything was working fine, except the generator. We took it in to a shop and had them replace the awning as well.

We stayed at the Texas State Park in Galveston.
Park pass costs $70 a year for family and covers daily entrance fees and discounts on camping at all Texas state parks. A good deal since the state does not charge a per person fee, it covers all who fit in my vehicle. (my vehicle can fit many - my whole family!)
It was good the see the park open again after suffering significant damage from Hurricane Ike.Hurricane Ike destroyed this state park back in 2008 The resulting change was significant. Now so many less beach spots over 150 before the storm and now less than 40 on the beach side. The bay side is still nice, and you are welcome to cross over. It would be nice to have septic at site, the park does have a dump station. It would be nice to have a bathroom closer, but still had one in walking distance. (There are eight of us).
We had a nice visit with Max, who spent most of the day and evening with us. The rest of our crew came and brought Mario's pizza for dinner. Saturday we played at the beach, went to mass and met family and friends at Gaidos for dinner.
Sunday Ironman day. We had so much fun cheering on the athletes biking by the state park.
I do have some projects I would like to get get done. I am going to redo rv front curtains, give it a major clean inside and out, maybe convine Nick to give it a wax job, and steam clean the carpet.
