Laura at the Texas Visitor Center on I-10 greeted us with the same level of enthusiasm and a Texas friendliness as she did over a year ago. She gave me stickers, calendar, maps and brochures and we parted company promising to see her next year.
The parking lot of AL-T's Seafood Steakhouse was nearly full. J.J. parked Honu in one of the last available spot. At , the restaurant was already busy serving lunch.
J.J. and I shared the shrimp platter consisting of fried, grilled, and stuffed shrimps, shrimp gumbo, shrimp stew and boiled shrimps. I concentrated on the two side dishes -- sautéed vegetables and mushrooms.
The home-made rolls served with honey were also delicious.
Heavy rain began to come down about 3:30 pm. This was a clear signal for us to settle on lodging.
Huntsville State Park in Huntsville Texas has a 210 acre lake. Being a rainy, week-day, the park was nearly empty.
Our pad is adjacent to the lake. With warning signs of deer and crocodile. J.J. and I will hold off our exploration of the park until morning.
