El Campo Texas


Phil got called for a short job to El Campo, Texas so off we went.
We are staying at a new campground that has a restaurant and a candy store.

First time eating crawfish and shrimp with their heads still on.





















The town is nice and has everything we could want, Wal-mart, HEB and a Chinese restaurant.

I got to see my first blue bonnets,and Indian Paintbrush

My friend, Debra, is about 45 mins away. So I've gone up to meet her a couple of times to go sight seeing.
We went to the Blue Bonnet Festival in Chappell Hill Texas.
On the way I had to take a picture of this bridge in the mist of the morning.
