Our last days in Texas spent with Darin and Eric and family. Kerry was in Austin on business and sorry to have missed him before leaving. We also missed getting together with good friends from Atlanta, Brenda and Ed who came into town, but had already made plans with Eric and Darin to join us for dinner. Sorry friends. Maybe we can meet up in Chattanooga.
On Tuesday we all met at Rudy's for barbeque family style. Had ribs,brisket,sausage, potato salad and creamed corn.You eat on butcher paper and dig in. Very good. Especially like the ribs and creamed corn.

Wednesday, Eric and Darin came to campground for dinner. Cindy and granddaughters had choir practice. We had to pick boys up at a parking area off base. I prepared a pasta shrimp dish, salad and fruit salad for dessert. Gave Darin the leftovers for his lunch tomorrow.
Thank you family for the nice early birthday surprise. You did a great job of planning. Love you all and count my blessings for such a wonderful family.
Thursday we departed Fort Sam Houston RV Park at 930 for Lake Charles LA and Whispering Meadows RV park.
Made two stops at Buc'ees. First was for gas and one of the delicious breakfast burritos. The second at Baytown for yummy brisket sandwich and cherry limeade. If you are ever in Texas, make one of their locations a must. By the way, no semi's allowed.
Traffic thru Houston not as scary as the last time, but happy to get past the city. When we arrived in Louisiana we planned to stop at the visitor center at exit 1, but it is no more since the recent storms and has now been moved to exit 29. Due to multiple wreck on IH 10 near exit 24, we were backed up and delayed in getting to campground.
Whispering Meadows is located via exit 27 to Hwy 378 in Westlake, around 3 miles north of the interstate. The owner lives on site and the park is well maintained with nice full hookup sites. Would definitely recommend this park. We will be here until Sunday when we depart for Shields Navy Base in Gulfport MS.
