Wednesday morning we got off to a good start. We were on the road again by 7 am. Memphis, then south thru Mississippi. It was raining most of the day. Not hard, but steady. The drive down thru Miss. Is enjoyable. Not a lot of traffic, good road conditions, the only city the highway passes thru is Jackson, the rest of the drive thru Miss. Is mostly thru scenic, wooded areas.
After leaving Miss. and entering Louisiana, it isn’t long before we stopped going south and turned west, driving into Baton Rouge, then continuing west thru Lafayette, traveling over the 20 mile bridge through a bayou area before heading thru Lake Charles.
About 60 miles west of Lake Charles, we crossed into Texas, driving thru Beaumont and finally reaching our destination, another La Quinta hotel, on the west side of Houston. The end of the second long day on the road.
Thursday morning, our drive turned south again. The weather cleared up and had a beautiful drive along the Gulf Coast for about 7 hours, past Victoria, past Corpus Christie, thru Refugio and finally arriving at our resort park, Fun n Sun, at 2 pm. From Houston down to San Benito, temperatures increased rapidly. It was over 90 F (30 C) when we pulled into our driveway.
