Lone Star FMCA Camping Group - Part 1

Since we have been members of the Family Motor Coach Association (FMCA) since 1993, we decided to check out a local chapter club. We are camped with them at the Lagoon RV Resort campground in Rockport, TX. The campout was scheduled for Thursday through Sunday, but we showed up Wednesday and most of them were already here!

On Wednesday, we met several people from the club. Also, the Stampers, Wayne and Marynell, whom we had met at Red Bay during our Bus building (they were watching their Phaeton final finish), and also saw at Red Bay on our last visit, are also here. Marynell was the one who gave us some information on this group. Wednesday evening, we went out to eat dinner with the Stampers at the local favorite restaurant, The Big Fisherman.

On Thursday, we met more folks, and spent time lounging around the campground. On Thursday night, the club had a catered 'lasagna' dinner catered. Afterwards, we participated in some games.... Patsy in LCR, and I managed to find a poker group. Since the Stampers and us were new members, we got to go through the line first. Here we are:

On Friday, Patsy and I took the car, and took the ferry across to Mustang Island at Aransas Pass. We drove quite a ways down the beach until we ran out of road!! We also visited the Mustang Island state park, and the Pioneer Campground. On our way back, Patsy confessed to me that she really just wanted to go to Aransas Pass to buy a pair of sandals that she had seen someone else wearing at the rally! We looked, but they did not have her size..... I was really saddened!!

Patsy did shoot a pelican while on the ferry ride back (with a camera, of course!!). She also got a seagull:

On Friday evening, we both had Bar-b-que for dinner. Patsy stayed at the rally and had it catered at the campground. I drove to Port Lavaca, and had it with the ALCOA 25-year club meeting.
