Our brief stay at Lazy Longhorn RV park in Victoria, TX was very nice. We didn’t unhook Boots and stayed at the park for three days. Work was pretty busy while we were there but I did have one evening where I was able to spend 2 hours reading by the pool. It was a small park compared to some we’ve stayed at but it was well laid out with concrete pads and streets and nice grassed areas between. Lots of palms and oleander bushes dotted the landscape. It was a Passport America park and we only paid $15 per night.
We left there Thursday morning and traveled through Houston to Willis, TX. Houston has to be the largest city I’ve ever been in. Since I couldn’t tell where Houston ended and the suburbs began. it seemed to go on forever. Willis is about 50 miles north of Houston. We’re at Bishop’s Landing which was previously known as Castaways. Bishop’s Landing is a Coast to Coast park. We have a nice view of Lake Conroe with lots of shade trees all around so we’re enjoying sitting outside here a lot! Roy made friends with a squirrel and started feeding him peanuts so the squirrel started coming close enough to take the peanut out of his hand!
On Saturday we ventured away from Dora for a Crawfish Festival in Humble, TX. It was held at Humble Civic Center which is a huge place where they must hold rodeos because the floor was made of dirt. They sold crawfish for $6.50 a pound with a small piece of corn and half a small potato. I’m pretty sure they cook it quite differently than we do. They put something like red pepper or other seasoning on it which made it pretty hot and it doesn’t taste like it’s cooked in salt water. They had a lot of vendors selling arts and crafts items along with a few amusement rides and lots of good music. It took us two hours coming and going because the traffic was so awful. Roy says we will never come back through Houston since it seems to always be like this.
A huge tree was laying across one of our neighbor 5th wheelers when we got here. They say it fell last Friday and the neighbors thought a tornado was coming through with the sounds it made. No one was in the rig at the time. This Friday we sat outside and watched the big equipment and saws come in to remove the tree.
This morning we went to the resort’s Worship Service in the club house. The preacher was an older gentleman whose preaching reminded me of Mr. Vivian Traylor’s preaching later in life. We enjoyed a great message and singing (out of an old Baptist hymnal) with the other RVers there. I really like it when a resort hosts a Worship Service but so few have them.
We’ll be in Willis until Saturday. Not sure where we go from here. We may be going straight back to Hammond if our renters move out early June but if they stay through end of June we’ll be heading to Arkansas. For now we’re quite happy being in this pretty park and enjoying the shade trees outside where it feels cool all day!
Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!

If you go through Little Rock call me and I will give you Julie’s phone number. She would love to see you and probably entertain you. They had tornado damage. Lost 40 trees and the side of the garage. Conroe Lake looks like a great place to stay. Love
