Catching Up

Okay, here I am catching up again and YES, it's about food! Sunday was the Super Bowl (seems so long ago, doesn't it??) and we spent it with friends here in Rockport at their RV Park. Mark & Dortha and Ellie & Jim are staying at the Last Resort and Sandra & Gordon are staying at Goose Island State Park. We all got together for a shrimp boil at the Last Resort. Seems there was an issue with the size of the pots so Jim cooked the potatoes, corn, sausage and onions and Dortha cooked the shrimp. What a great time we had. I've been "talking" to Sandra in our RV chatroom for over a year now and we finally got to meet. I really didn't even care about the game but I do love football and some of the commercials were good. I AGAIN forgot my camera so I shamelessly stole this one from Dortha's blog.

Thursday was errand day. We always start off Thursday with lunch at the Big Fisherman to fortify ourselves. LOL

These are the "Winter Texan Specials" We don't ever go on Tuesdays anymore

I'm getting tired of fried fish so I had the chicken fried steak (another Texas staple)

After that it was off to Camper Clinic for some much needed RV supplies. Rod's going to be busy with some little projects. A new anode for the water heater, some hinges for the overhead cabinet doors but unfortunately they were out of the little fans for the bathroom vent. Another project for another day......

One more stop and then back home

Friday was a girls day out. Dortha, Ellie, Sandra and I all went out geocaching. First we met up for lunch. We had planned on going to this little deli but when we got there it was closed. We ended up having our lunch at a Mexican restaurant. Works for me. For those of you who don't know, geocaching is sorta like a treasure hunt. You go online to the website and you can find out where the "treasures" are hidden in your area. You download them into your gps and off you go. The gps gets you close to the hidden treasure and with clues from the website you have to search a little bit. Some people have been very clever where they hide them. They can be as big as an ammo box or as small as your thumbnail. This was my first time trying this but Ellie is an ole pro. We were only going out to find six of them but Ellie had some more so we ended up finding nine. I had so much fun and plan on looking for some more.

First stop failed

The first treasure was in this parking lot

Here's Ellie's find

You don't always find a "treasure". Sometimes you just sign the log to prove that you've been there. This one is called a nano. It's one of the smallest. Can you see the log curled up in it?

Dortha found one!

Ellie & Sandra look really excited with this find. LOL

Thanks you guys for a really GREAT day.

Looks like you gals had a fun day. $2.25 per plate? for a Winter Texan Special? How much food do you get for that? One more thing--I cut FabGrandpa's hair myself, just clip it off and we're done.
