Betttttttyyyyyyyy’s RV Park

We left Livingston about 8:30 AM in the camper.  We went towards Beaumont then down to Port Arthur.  There we picked up route 82 for a long ride.  It runs along the Gulf of Mexico.  Not touristy at all which was a pleasant surprise. Speed limit was 55 mph and that is all you really want to do.  Small road with no shoulder usually.  Now that I drove it, we have no desire to do it again.  We did get to ride a short ferry with the RV.  A 40 footer would have to detach from their tow behind.  Us and about 8 vehicles made the 5 minute trip.

A RV neighbor came up (Toni) and asked us we if we were Dennis & Carol.  We said yes and she said she was warned about us especially me.  Blew my mind!  It was fun and in good taste but yes she was told “about us.” When we told her that Mark Nemeth would be parking next to her and her husband you would think she just won the lottery.  She got all excited.

Mark arrived with Jim & Lisa in tow just about.DSC_0076

Jim appeared to be on a mission.DSC_0075

During social hour everybody introduced themselves.  That was fun.DSC_0078DSC_0079

Then Mark presented Betty with an Escapees award for being so special and supporting RVers and especially Escapees.  She really appreciated the award.DSC_0102DSC_0111DSC_0119

For the pot luck dinner she made the main dish for everybody – chicken gumbo.  It was so good.DSC_0131DSC_0130

After dinner and about dark everybody went their own way.  Mark and I sat out and smoked a cigar.  It was a quite night.

Oh oh, Carol and were here in April and so were two other couples at the same time.  What are the odds.

Here’s a good picture of Jim.DSC_0091

Retirement – you should never have to work towards retirement.  Just go straight into retirement right away and skip working.

See ya…
