"WOW" moments (part 7 of ?)

 Location: New Rockdale RV Park; Mansfield, Louisiana

This is the seventh part of a multi-part posting of some of the "wow" moments from my travels. I started putting these together while I was stationary during Brandon's recovery from his second stroke. Today is day 98 since his second stroke and he continues to improve, little by little, each day. 

I will be hitting the road on the 29th of this month so I am trying to get up to date on these Wow posts. Remember, if you want to see more about a place, use the archive on the right side of the blog post. For my southern friends,,,,, Over yonder >>>>>>>>

This trip was a circle through Texas with many of the campgrounds in the great State Parks of Texas.

Some of the CCC work from the 1930's at Tyler State Park, Tyler, Texas

Great walking trails at Tyler State park for "non-flat belly" men like me.

A children's pool/wading pool built by the CCC nearly 80 years ago at Tyler State Park.

I camped in a Prairie Dog town at Lake Arrowhead State Park outside of Wichita Falls, Texas.

Aw,,,, the Gulf of Mexico at the Bolivar Peninsula

Ferry crossing into Galveston, Texas

The Pleasure Pier in Galveston

Sunset over Galveston and the Houston Shipping Lane

It's always a sad "wow" to see this location. The turn ahead is leaving the Bolivar Peninsula and heading to High Island and eventually home to Louisiana. It was a stormy day and the Gulf was angry, but it made it all the more "wow-full". 

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