I travel in Freedom but sleep in the security of Liberty (not only on the road, but in this amazing country of ours)

Last Pictures from Quintana Area

Location: Quintana Beach County Campground; Quintana, Texas  (south of Houston)

All Pictures taken with Nokia Lumia Icon 929 Cell Phone

The next campground is only about 2 hours away so I plan to pull out around 10:30 or so. There are two routes to get there, both of which are equal in travel time. One is passing over the San Luis Bridge that connects to the southern end of Galveston Island. It is a long and very narrow bridge. I crossed it many years ago while traveling in a car. At that time there was a shifting fog which varied from having to almost stop to being able to see out into the Gulf of Mexico. It was the kind of weather and narrowness that would make a person question why he's on the bridge. The second route is slightly inland and passes through the Coastal Plain. Like I said, both route are equal in terms of time, I wonder which way I'll choose,,, Duh,,,, I'm choosing the Coastal Plains. Wish me luck.

Since I'm on 30 amp service, I use propane to power my water heater. To do so, I have to flip a switch. It usually takes about 15 minutes to heat up the water, so I figured I would post the last of the pictures I've taken around the area while drinking my morning coffee and waiting on hot water. I hope I don't run out of propane. 

Here we go, last of the picture, with captions:

There are two man-made things in Texas that all visitors should see. One is a H-E-B grocery store (think Whole Foods, but better) and the other is a Buc'ees gas station. I've noticed some smaller Buc'ees on this trip, but make sure you see one of their "big'uns". 

Same Buc'ees except I liked the way the flag was flying in this one. I was waiting in the car wash line while taking this picture. It wasn't the best car wash, but it was worth the $10.00 to get Freedom almost totally clean.

This is the fishing pier that is part of the City of Quintana Beach.

A few guys leaving he fishing pier with their fishing gear as I arrived. They said nothing was biting.

Now it was a chilly morning and I'm in long pants with a wind breaker on,,,, but apparently surfing in a wet suit is warm enough. 
Apparently when a "rip current" warning goes out to warn swimmers of dangerous conditions, it is like a dinner bell for the surfers.

Surprisingly, close to half of the surfers were women. 

Night fishing capabilities

Meanwhile, on the other side of the fishing pier are the Surf Fishing Persons (again, about half were women)

From one of the wooden walkways in the campground. Freedom and Liberty is in the picture somewhere.

I think this metal sculpture is to warn Non-Southerners about our flying friendlies. 

Ya'll take care of each other. I'll Cya down the road.

    1. I agree Shirley. There are a lot more flags flying now a days.
