Not much to report today. We drove from Austin to Beaumont, Texas in just under four hours with only a ten-minute stop for tea and restrooms. Not that we're in a hurry, but Lulu planned it that way so we could watch the Netherlands play Argentina in the three 'o clock game (we're in Central time now) in our hotel room. After the disappointing game, we ...

We arrived at Gulf Coast RV Resort in Beaumont about 7pm and had to hook up in the dark, but we did and got everything inside settled. Now it's time for a good night sleep.
Good morning! Almost good afternoon. We arrived safely in Houston last night and enjoyed our one-night stay at the Embassy Suites. We woke up leisurely, enjoyed our breakfast and made our way to check out. Next we made a quick stop at the Att store so Risa could get her phone updated and have her line transferred to her original phone number.
