Where I stayed
The Palms RV Park

Flag of United States  , Texas
Monday, March 26, 2012

Port Aransas is a real beach town.  There are lots of vacation homes, condominiums, golf course, souvenir shops, bike and golf cart rentals, lots of places to eat and drink and, of course, the beach. There is a big fishing pier at the beach and we saw quite a few people trying to surf or standing on paddle boards.  

The Texas Department of Transportation provides free ferry service from Port Aransas to Aransas Pass.  With a maximum of 65 feet in length, we easily fit on board.  Now, I really enjoyed the ferry and John was feeling a little uneasy about driving his RV onto a boat.  It was cool, just too short.

Arriving on the other side, John drove out to Rockport and Fulton to check out some parks he found on-line.  No luck.  So, back to Aransas Pass we went and landed in a very nice park with super nice folks.  I interrupted an exercise class in the club house that I should have joined.  They looked like they were having a lot of fun.  We were so comfortable here that we stayed for two nights.  

This area has a lot of retirees.  It is much more rural, but not far from the city.

I had my camera set wrong while we were here, so some of the photos don't show what I thought I was taking a picture of.  You will see that the humidity is leaving my hair at its worse and I've almost given up on it.

Texas note:  If a place has a Donut Palace, Dollar General, Reilly's Auto Supply, and a Dairy Queen, it is probably a town.  If you add a Whataburger, Wal-Mart and a Bealls Department Store, it's a big town.
