Tell ya what, though: we've never seen so many skeeters in one place as here. Even as cool as it was last night, they were hanging in clouds around the camper doors. Not even Naples (FL) equals this, and that's going some.

Too early for pics, and someone threw a blanket over the sun, but you can bet yer bippy I'll go walk the beach later on!

Ts ta!

I wondered about the luck of us folk leaving Rockport. Air springs, careless drivers, lockouts .... What next?

So, a few times in our travels I have fat fingered the lever lock and locked myself out. Each time Earlene was inside the MH, so as embarrassing as it was I had to knock on the door for her to let me back in. I am now very careful when we step outside together because she typially does not hake her set of keys with her when we are just going to walk. However, she has the annoying, but necessary. way of asking me everytime before the door closes if I have my keys.

I think I have remedied this situation. I ut one of those realator locks in the propane compartment with both a door/bay key and ignition key, just in case. It works! Ever since I put that in there I have never locked myself out.

He wants to cut on it but I think I'll wait till I get to my old doctor that fixed my other one. So things are looking up shara and the jeep are better and me I'll be fine.
Wuss! Glad to hear Shara is on the mend.

We are in the Fort Bliss RV Park, you have to be military to stay here, but it is easy and cheap..... Also the new Mutants, Don and Misty are here, but we havent met them yet. He still works. On the map, hwy 54 and Ellerthorpe Rd.

Havent even checked out a food place... I am really craving mex food, but have no suggestions....

Do you know anytng about the area? Where are you gonna stop?

Di and Larry, If Jeff hasn't made accommodations anywhere, check with the RV camp and see if they have room for an overnight guest. Typically there are two ways to gt a guest through the gate. First is to park them somewhere and take all their paper work to the visitor center and get a pass. This is very good if they are going to be there for awhile. The easy way at 99% of the installations is to have someone with a military ID card in the vehicle when they come through the gate. At least that is the way it has worked for me.

Did you try the ThermaCell?

===============================

Jeff, I'm so surprised, since you wanted to get to where you are going quickly, that you didn't put on your little ballerina tutu and click your heels together.

What a mental picture that conjures up.

Wayne, we bought 2 ThermaCells plus refills. Opened the first one last night & I will take it outside with me from now on! Didn't have it while we were locked out, worse luck!

Next thing is to light a nice smokey fire. And sit in the smoke, cough, sputter, wipe eyes. Last camper left us some great (wet!) firewood to start with.

Cheers!

Boardwalk/pier over the marsh. Gee I wonder where all those mozzies are coming from! Pond to the right, pier to the left and picnic table with fire ring right here. And the sun has thrown back its blanket and come out to play ... Yay!

Di & Larry we'd love to stop, but we decided to push on to Las Cruces to make our trip to PHX Wednesday shorter. Still have some last minute shopping to do before Thanksgiving. Thanks for the invite, hope we can get a raincheck. Cheers!

Beyond the marsh and ponds, the beach is pretty plain-Jane.

There's a story here if you can read it.
I stopped on the boardwalk to watch a great egret fishing for his dinner. I was getting hungry but he didn't offer to share.

Mike and Harriet only exit in the either. If they materialize, it will have been some dusted monkey magic... LoL...
