Rolling to Rockport

Despite the cold and blustery weather this morning, we said our good-byes at Pioneer Resort in Bandera and were on the road by 10:30am. We headed south on SR-173 through the towns of Hondo, Devine, and Kyote. In Jourdanton we picked up SR-97 to Pleasanton, where we took US-281 south, which joins with I-37 in short order. At SR-188, we headed east through Sinton and toward Rockport. With a strong tail-wind most of the day and the decrease in elevation as we neared the coast, the bus-house rewarded us with better than 9 mpg.

We arrived at Sandollar Resort in Rockport about 3pm and drove right to our site. During the next two hours we greeted old friends, attended a blustery happy-hour, and got the bus-house set up and plugged in. Full hookups and plenty of electric power are going to be appreciated the next few days as Old Man Winter is hot on our heels -- threatening to throw some frozen precipitation our way. Isn't this South Texas? Hmmm.

We're here in Rockport now for a couple months, maybe three. What adventures and surprises are in store for us? I wonder.

A bit more relaxed in Rockport...
