One Last Day of Living On the Water


We spent almost all of Monday on errands, leaving the rig before lunch, and not returning until almost dark. . .I felt like I had been around the world. . .and not in a good way! 

Picked up our favorite boudain at a meat market in Jasper that specializes in DJ’s Boudain. . .it is the best I have ever tasted. . .so if you ever see it available anywhere. . .be sure to try it. . .delicious!

Went for our annual physicals. . .which always seem to take FOREVER. . .what is up with that?  Spending three hours in the doctor’s office is not my idea of fun. . .at all! ! !

Needless to say, I didn’t get a bike ride in. . .or get to take any new pics. . .so I will leave you with a few of my very favorite views of the Cypress Swamp. . .

Love that you hardly tell where the tree ends and the water begins. . .and the fog just adds to the overall ambience. . .

these guys put in at the boat dock bright and early. . .Dave was doing the deliverance theme. . .although I’m almost certain the guys in Deliverance were in canoes. . .weren’t they?
I hope you’ve enjoyed our pictures of the swamp as much as we’ve enjoyed being there. . .bright and early this morning, we set off for the Thousand Trails Park in Conroe. . .Dave is teaching a class in College Station, so will be gone most of the week. . .it’s going to be very quiet around here. . .probably not much to report on!
We may volunteer at one of the State Parks in the area. . .waiting to hear back from them. . .other than that. . .just regular life in the RV. . .
Til next time,
Janice
