After a nice easy ride on some very uneven roads, I checked into Lakeside RV Park. They have some new sites near the road for a 10% discount over the discount for monthly stays. For the area it is a reasonable deal and a very clean place. Being close to the things that I will visiting will save more on diesel than the cheaper places a little farther away.
The distances in Houston got me this afternoon. The short trip over to the major fishing gear store turned out to be forty two miles round trip. That translates into an eleven dollar trip just for a look see. When I get back to Sinton, those shorter round trips will not seem as bad. Accommodating the 56% increase in diesel fuel cost and the 56% increase in health insurance cost after I quit work is becoming a difficult thing on the budget I had worked out last October.
While thinking some things over this afternoon, I walked down to the bayou at the back of the campground. It was raining slightly and a spell of sitting under the shade shelter was a great relaxation. There was a big party going on across the bayou. A lot of raucous behavior and noise indicated a good time was happening. When the party broke up, a bunch of the partiers came swimming across the bayou to my side. They were well behaved as they approached the shore.
A good point in favor of this campground right in town is the shopping center a short walk away. This afternoon I walked down to the Home Depot and purchased a repair part for one of my water hoses. The trip only took thirty minutes. The best part is the burning of fat calories instead of diesel calories.
The Kemah Boardwalk is having some sort of fireworks show right now. At first it sounded like a gun fight between the police and some crooks. The police sirens must have been about controlling traffic at the Boardwalk.
One thing about this area, it is hard to run out of things to do as long as you have money to burn. Unless my ad sense income picks up dramatically, my status requires me to find other ways to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM
