Vacation always ends too soon. We had a wonderful trip. We started out by going to San Antonio for 4 days. We stayed at the Blazing Star - EasyRider, I don't remember what site number you told me you were in, even though you said you would be gone for a couple of weeks starting the 14th, which is the day we arrived. I thought you said 416, but we went by there and there was several people, mother and young girl, outside so I assumed I had the wrong site as you said you would be gone. We were in 724. Anyway, my nephew is staying in Laredo on a job and has been down there heading up this project for about 2 yrs. We met him in Cotula on Easter and went to lunch and then into Mexico at Eagle Pass. Record temps in the 100's when we were in S.A. Tuesday, we headed on down to Corpus Christi. A little cooler there, only in the 90's. We went to the beach there and then on Weds., we drove down to Padre and went to the beach there. One beach we drove on, the car sunk in the sand as soon as we drove onto it. Buried it up to the frame. Several people came and tried to help dig out but it was impossible. Finally a guy came up in a truck who had some tow straps so he hooked onto us and pulled us back up onto the pavement. The water was cold initially, but once we got used to it, it was wonderful. On the way to Padre, we stopped in Port Aransas and had lunch at a very nice restaurant right on Fisherman's Wharf, where you could sit and watch the boats coming and going. I don't eat seafood, but hubby said it was very fresh and good. We had to take a very short ferry ride into Port Aransas - my first one. It really was a perfect day.
We had hoped to find some seashells as I am redecorating one of the guest bedrooms in our home in a beach theme but no luck. We ended up going to a shop and buying some shells and starfish. We have been all over the world and I truly think this was the best trip we have taken. This was the dog's first trip in the motorhome with us - talk about a pain in the butt!!! Every single morning, he woke me up with barking, which he never does at home. Even though he is pad trained, he peed on the carpet and once, he jumped up on the dash and pooped on it. He also chewed up my husband's new sunglasses, our TL directory, some woodwork and a whole box of kleenex. We are going to the west coast in about 8-9 weeks and I am really reconsidering whether to take him or not. But look at this face - how can I stay mad at him?? I missed reading all of your posts while we were gone. Well, just wanted to check in....

Cheryl, glad to hear you enjoyed your vacation (with exception of puppy problems). The advise you've been given about crating Bucky is probably worth trying. We have a five year old lhasa apso/poodle we recently started putting him in his crate every night because he'd have us up a few times (he's nosy and just had to see what was going on in the backyard) - now he goes to bed when we do, and he stays in his crate until we get up and let him up. He actually seems to be happier in there than when he's free to roam - if we're going to be out of the house for more than a couple of hours, we will put him in his crate.


We just got home last night and had a fabulous holiday. The weather in Florida was hot and dry (great for us, but not for the locals - they are hoping for rain). It's back to work tomorrow - now I just have to dream about my next trip, and use this site to make my plans. I don't think I stayed anywhere that didn't have a review on this site, and they were all pretty good. Now I need to spend some time inputting my own reviews.


Browzin - you've got me really confused - what kind of dog do you really have, and what does it really look like?
