RVer Jimmy Smith reflects on a rainy day on the Coastal Bend of Texas


Sandollar_RVsite_JulianneGCraneOur rolling cottage is resting for a month in its site at the Sandollar RV Park on the Coastal Bend of Texas.

We returned to the Rockport-Fulton area for a third time because of family in Houston, RV friends in the same park, affordability, and the small town charm of these fishing communities. A huge bonus is the near by Aransas Wildlife Refuge where the endangered Whooping Cranes, and a number of other migrating birds, return each winter.

Part of spending winter on the Coastal Bend is experiencing the seasonal rain patterns that move along the Texas Coast during this time of the year.

RVer Jimmy Smith took a few minutes to write his thoughts about the rain, potato soup simmering on the stove, and other images that tumble through his mind.  To read more click here: A RAINY DAY ON THE GULF COAST OF TEXAS.”

  • Just wanted to say that during lunch today, I stumbled onto to Jimmy Smith’s blog, and just thought “this is a great guy!” I do appreciate your stories.
    My wife and I are trying to retire sometime in the next months and plan to spend some time on the road, so your lead is appreciated. We have a small farm outside Adrian MO, and it is also a comfortable place to be.
    Keep writing!
    With kind regards,
    David E. Francis, MSW, LCSW
