Camp host job.

It is official, we are going south for the winter. We accepted a camp host job in Port Lavaca, TX starting September 23. I am so excited! As of now we will be working 4 days and off 8. This will be the most relaxing job I've ever had. LOL Plenty of time to walk on the beach, fish and enjoy the birds at the nearby bird sanctuary. There is a raise walk and observation cabanas all around the sanctuary and a 1,000 foot fishing pier off the end of the beach. I will get the see and hear the ocean all day long. Fresh fish for supper and a long walk every evening, sounds like heaven to me. I will miss my family and friends, but through the use of modern technology we will be able to stay in touch.

We had a wonderful visit by some new neighbors this morning. John and Mary Schwartz are a sweet Amish couple that live down the road from us. They voiced interest in learning to build our outdoor furniture. It would be wonderful to share with them what we have learned. I so admire the stamina and determination of the Amish way of life. They will be building everything by hand, wow, I wish I had the patience to do that.

Well, I had better get back to work and finish packing up stuff to sell at the yard sale this weekend. It will be held just south of the Pilot Knob Church on Hwy. 63. Come by and see all the goodies available, Friday thru Monday.

  1. Hi! LOVED your comment on the Everything Coastal blog, so nice to meet another sea glass fiend!


  2. PS Being a camp host sounds like so much fun. My parents have been RV travelers for the past several years and have had a blast - wishing you a wonderful fall and winter in warmer climates.
