Comfort Castle Location: SeaWind RV Park, Texas
Adventure Location: Riviera, Texas
After a miserable night of listening to large trucks blow their air brake air, it was finally morning. My body rolled out of bed a 6 am but the sun did not get up until nearly 8 am. Finally the decision was to head deeper into south Texas for a definitive look see at the area again. This time it would be in depth for decisions about the future.
Onward we rolled toward Corpus Christi until highway 77 came into sight. Then a turn toward the Rio Grande Valley or RGV that is very popular with a lot of Winter Texans. Personally it never seemed that attractive to me except for the lack of cold weather. But it is time to check it out carefully.
As the Team rolled south a decision was made to stay at SeaWind because of the reviews about it on rvparkreviews.com. It is a very nice park right on the water as you can see from this overhead picture.
Barbara, the manager, was wonderful to talk with and she chose a spot for me at my request. It seems to be the best in the park.
That building in the back ground is the restrooms and laundry. Right across the street is the game room and recreation hall. The sites are spaced a little better than most parks. The down side is the water is safe but high in sodium. It is a little too salty for me, so tomorrow some bottled water will be purchased.
The round pond you see is effluent treatment pond. The large body of water to the right in the overhead shot is named Baffin Bay. It is tidal salt water from Laguna Madre and the Gulf of Mexico. Here is one of the pond.
Growing all around the park is flowering shrubs of several species. For your viewing pleasure here are some of the flowers.
The folks who make the rules in this park have made a great decision and allow you to wash your equipment. It is $3 for an RV or a vehicle and you wash it on site! Yea. Now there is no excuse for not getting the Castle and Truck cleaned up. OH BOY work to do.
Tomorrow will likely be a travel, without the Castle, on down to the RGV and look around. Then stick around this park and work for Fri, Sat and Sun. Maybe on Mon or Tue the Puddle Boat can be floated on Baffin Bay. It is only a couple of hundred yards to the water.
It will be an early night to bed to try to recover from last nights lack of sleep. Then my refreshed body will be ready for a day of trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
