Lake Somerville State Park

We are spending this weekend at the Lake Somerville State Park, with a spinoff group from our old Gulf Coast RV Group. There are 14 rigs registered and we are in the Group Trailer Area. We arrived here with our Tiffin Motorhome friends, Connie & Manuel Esparza and Sue & Mark Didelot. Here are pictures of our rigs right after we arrived, and also with our outside Christmas lights............ the outside lights are sort of a requirement for a lighting contest to be judged later in the weekend:

The latter two pictures are closeups of our Bus. I failed to tell Patsy about the contest, and therefore, she did not pack anything. She did bring some stuff to decorate the inside, and the hall, so we had something. She got creative, and I think she did really good!!

Today, we drove into Brenham to do some shopping, and along the way, we found not a housboat, but a "carboat'........ I guess that is what you would call it. It looked kind of strange sitting along the side of the road, but I wonder what folks that see it on the water think!!!!

We arrived here late Wednesday evening. The folks from San Antonio and Houston drove through some heavy snow flurries. Patsy and I managed to miss that coming up from Victoria. Activities since we got here have included unloading firewood, sitting around the fire pit and visiting, and eating & playing dominoes in the hall located in the group area. Here are some pictures that tell the story better.............

More to come as the weekend continues..................................
