We are keeping a close eye on Neal when he is out. The sign says it all! We are camped at the Brackenridge Plantation Park and Campground, 7 miles southeast of Edna, Texas. We left the valley at 8:30 this morning and drove up here. It is just past Victoria, Texas. We had plans to go to the state park and we did drive through. This area had 2 1/2 inches of rain over the weekend and a lot of the sites had standing water on them. The park is obviously much older and the sites were very short. You could not park on the grass, so most places could not accommodate a big rig. We left there and came across the highway.

Brackenridge Recreation Complex is a huge indoor rodeo that was just completed in the last couple years. It is surrounded by fields and on down the lane sitting on Lake Texana is the park where we are camped. It is a beautiful park in a beautiful setting on the shores of the lake. The state park is actually on the lake as well, but on around the bend from where we are.

We had a nice driving day. There was a lot of sun, virtually no wind and no rain. The drive was easy and uneventful. . . just like we like them. We did leave a day earlier than we planned to because tomorrow wind is in the forecast for the valley all the way up to where we now sit. We are leaving early in the morning to get through Houston then on up to Kinder and the Red Shoes Casino.

Till next time. . .
