With official directions and a lot of help from Google Earth, we wind our way along ever narrowing backroads to the Volunteer Village at Brazoria National Wildlife Refuge. We go under a bridge, around a hairpin turn and make an eye-squeezing turn into the park. My eyes are closed on the last turn as I am not sure that we will fit between the gate posts and have a mental picture of our coach topsy-turvy in the shallow ditch beside the narrow driveway . Storm maneuvers us into the village keeping the RV upright and together we select a site that seems like a good 2 month home for our rig. One of the primary considerations is turning our entrance door into the wind so that the potential clouds of mosquitoes that can arise from these wetlands won’t find a becalmed area at our entrance where they can lurk waiting for us to donate to their bloodbank.
A few days ago, the Fish and Wildlife Service initiated a controlled burn right across the road from our motorhome. We became a little concerned when we returned home to this sight:
Right now we are still getting acclimated and trying to learn enough about the area to get around. Here are some pictures from our first few days in Texas.
