Southern Louisiana is a watery place. Between Bay St. Louis, our next stop just past Breaux Bridge, LA and last night's stay in Baytown, Texas, we passed and/or crossed over countless bayous, swamps, creeks, rice fields and bridges.
|this view freaked me out!|
The fog and humidity rode with us the entire way.
Our choice in Baytown was Bayou Bend RV Resort, just east of Houston. It was a very neat, clean park with enough space between sites and lots of carefully edged grass. Passport America rate was only $25 - a real bargain. After we got settled in and had a little happy hour I drew the windshield drapes back to check out the sunset.
It was very bright and orange. And it was pulsing. I shook my head and looked again. It was pulsing. I called Dave over to look, he saw it too. We each only had a small glass of wine at Happy Hour, so it wasn't the alcohol that made the sunset seem to flicker. To make a long story short, the "sunset" was really a foggy reflection of the numerous gas flares burning at a nearby refinery. Oh dear. Later in the evening they were gone and the sky was dark.
Fog was still with us this morning. It dropped down to the level of the highway and rain poured out of it. A very unpleasant drive through busy Houston.
Fog, rain and wind, in varying degrees, were our companions on the drive through Houston and around San Antonio.
Once on the north west side of San Antonio, however, the precipitation gave way to clear, blue skies!
We're at Buckhorn Lake RV Resort in Kerrville, Texas for a couple nights. After the difficult drive today we both need a little relaxation and we have a large, beautiful site here. Stay tuned.
