Murdo Girl… On the road..Corpus Christi

(Written Thursday)

It’s Thanksgiving Day and we are in Galveston, TX. We got here yesterday after spending two days in Corpus Christi. While in Corpus, we decided we had to take some time to catch up with mundane things like the laundry. We got the car detailed, and cleaned our cozy little road home. After completing our tasks, we headed for the beach.

We’re going to the beach..Yea! We’re in Corpus Christi and we’re going to the beach!


Barkaritaville..A bath after the beach

After 6 weeks on the road, our little dogs were looking pretty grubby. We looked around Corpus and found the coolest place to give them a bath. Its called Barkaritaville. They offer full pet grooming, but we opted for the do it yourself “bath station.”

20161122_130218 The station is equipped with  a sprayer that operates in cycles like a car wash. The first step is to shampoo, then rinse. Next on the cycle is a conditioner, followed by another rinse and a blow dry. The last thing you do, is rinse out the tub with a disinfectant spray. The whole thing was $10 per dog, but it was worth it. Cyndie escaped the full deal. She just got brushed out.

With everything spanking clean again, we headed to Jamaica Beach in Galveston, Texas. Some friends who also live in Mabank, have been going Jamaica Beach RV Park for years. They told us about Thanksgiving there  and it sounded like a lot of fun. I’m going to wait to write about it all after we complete our stay. We leave for home on Monday.


I’ll give you a little picture preview. We’re having a blast with Ron and Barbara. We hope you all had a joyful Thanksgiving too!

    Woo hoo! Fun Times! I wish you would take me on your next RV vacation because you’re having such a blast! I even got excited about the dog wash place. Were the other two dogs mad that Cyndie escaped a bath? Is Cyndie your favorite child? Was Cyndie too large to lift into the self dogwash station? Waiting with bated breath for the huge Thanksgiving RV Bash!
