Heading further north, to an awesome camground!

Where are we today ?

        Up early as usual, relaxing , computing and coffees even walkabout then secure our coach, hook up the car and stop by our friends to say see y'all later down the road. Pulled out at 9:15 am, stopped at Love's around the corner to top up our propane tank. 
48 miles ˆ
        Then hit I-45 north to Huntsville and 19 east to Trinity Texas.
notice the sign, in case of
evacuation, all lanes will be northbound
Sam Houston Statue on I-45,
gonna come back and check this out
this the way
downtown Trinity
stopped for a parade
         Got thru all that long travel day and were at Westwood shores on Lake Livingston shortly after 11am. Gotta love these long travel days!
        This a huge gated community, with lots of small lakes and 18 hole golf course as well. We checked it at the gate told us to drive to the campground staying to the right. Well made one right turn too many and ended up on a dead end road.  OOPPS! Gotta disconnect the car, turn around and keep searching.
Opps dead end!
        Eventually we found the campground.  Not sure what to do here but found ourselves a nice huge campsite, full hookups, cement patio, and looking over the lake! Perfect, now this is a wonderful place, like a State (or provincial park) setting in the pines WOW! This is our kind of camping. And a membership park only $10.00 a night including free wifi.(at the clubhouse thou).

fish fry tonight
        Now there is a fish fry tonight at the clubhouse that we just need to go to and a St. Patricks Day Dance afterwards.
        So the clubhouse for 6 pm, line up by the pool and chat with people on an awesome evening.
cooking lotsa fish
        Now we had a nice dinner, and met people here at our table from Texas. Would you believe Ken and Barbie? Well, no picture, because you would not recognize them as the Ken and Barbie you are thinking about.
A tasty fish fry by the pool
        After supper cooled down and we walked back home thinking maybe return for the dance at 8 o'clock. But ya know we got comfy in our lawn chairs and read until then (too dark to read anymore) and just decided time to relax for the night. (must be getting old eh?) Such and beautiful evening and so peaceful. We can here the band playing if we  open the windows, no problem they are pretty good. Look at the campsites across the pond.
the night time view from our site
       We had an awesome day today just love finding new places to explore. We are sure to return here as well.
       Thanks for stopping by hope your day was as wonderful as ours!
       In case I did not mention the weather was perfect, sunshine, blue skies and about 85f all day, love it!

    1. Every day is great, some just more awesome than others.
      I believe you have to be a member, of Coast to Coast. If not it would be expensive, but worth checking out.
