Hey travelers. if coming to Galveston do not take I-45S. The intersection of I-45 and Hwy 646 well be closed for 6 months while they build the new overpass.

If you are coming from the East take Hwy 146 out of Baytown.

If you are coming from the West there are a couple ways to get there but my thoughts would to use Hwy 36S towards Rosenberg and just before Rosenberg take Loop 10 to get around the city, then on 36s again to 1462 and into Alvin, pick up Hwy 35N for about a mile or two and then Hwy 6 to Galveston.


Another way would be to take Hwy 6 off of I-10 and go through Sugar Land. Stop and go for about 3 miles with un-syncronized lights.


Call me for directions if you wish.

So first thing on Saturday was a visit to this old rice mill. Still in operation, it is on the National Register of Historic Places and can't be changed. Much of the machinery is steam-powered & belt driven. Newer machines, added before the registry, are electric, like the smaller baggers & the machine that stitches the bags closed.

The tour was super & the gift shop great fun, but the people made the day. If you're ever in the area, it's worth taking some time for this mill in New Iberia. It is not far from the Tabasco factory & its Jungle Gardens and the Rip Van Winkle Gardens. Each has its own restaurant.

Gotta stop & get back to the maps. Cheers!Click image for larger version

Frog City RV Park held a crawfish boil Saturday night & served them up in traditional fashion ... potatoes & corn on the cob mixed in & the whole lot poured out onto the serving table. Hamburgers & hot dogs were cooked as an alternative.

We all ate elbow to elbow in the function room, passing paper towels to clean hands with, & jabbering 90 to the dozen. Wound up w/ 6 folks coming along to visit our rig & then us going off later to visit someone else's. Somewhere in there was a small drink of cherry brandy.

Sunday night we ate at Cajun Claws & I ordered their jambalaya. All around us were folks having big trays piled high w/ crawfish. I mean 16 - 18" diameter w/ 2 - 3" walls to hold in the goodies. Of course only about 1/4 of that volume is edible, but it's still impressive.

Tonight? Cajun cracklins & whatever non-spicy food I can clear out of the fridge. Oh yes, & I bought a jar of Cajun malitons. Yuh, whut?? Had to look it up because the manager of the shop didn't know how to describe it to me except to call it vegetable pear & tell me she puts it in her gumbo. So: It is also called chayote, & is a sort of summer squash we see in Walmart sometimes, originally from Mexico. A bit spiced out for the moment, I'll try that tomorrow.

Anybody else cold tonight? My garden is safely tucked away in its lighted bay & I'm standing indoors about as close to the fireplace as I can get. Brr-rr!

Well I'm guessing the mutants are having trouble logging in to the forum today.

Don't worry, I'll wait on you.
