Time to move. We are only moving 80 km down the road to our next
Our new home will be at Tropic Winds in the city or Harlingen. We
are still in the Rio Grande Valley.
This RV Park belongs to the corporation "Encore". Encore has 10
RV Parks in the Valley.
After we registered, we carried on to our site and set up. Photos
of our site and the park in the next few days.
A little later in the day we skyped with our youngest son,
Benoit. We love skyping with our sons.
We toured the park on our bikes and did some reading.

Our "new" home for the month. This park has 637 sites and it is
not the biggest in the valley. It is almost full.
We stopped by the activity director's office to learn what are all the
activities in this park. Lets just say that if you are bored, it
is because you want to be bored.
It is bingo night tonight. Just before we left, we had this
beautiful sky to look at.
Here too they have electronic bingo. They are very well
organized. No winnings for us tonight.
The people in the park are very nice.

They have the "Park Meeting" this morning. Of course to attract
people, they have coffee and donuts, but not free.
We took a little tour of the area and found this big Thrift Shop.
We had to stop.

We are under a strong winds warning starting this afternoon until
tomorrow at noon.
But this morning it is nice and I went for a bike ride in the park.
This is the "bird park" where dogs are not allowed.
There is an RV Show in Mercedes and decided to go and check it out.
We know that right now the hospital in Quebec are running at 200%
because of the flu season, but here the wait time at the ER is only 5
We are at the RGV Livestock Showground of Mercedes for the "All Valley
RV Show and Outdoor Show".
My pretty Michele.
We are very disappointed by this RV Show. In less that 45 minutes
we were done, in the car, going to a restaurant.
Since we loved our experience at the restaurant Lin's last week in
McAllen, we decided to try the one in Weslaco.
This Lin's is just as good as the one in McAllen. Food is good
Cowboy boots in town.
There is a lot of smoke in the air. It comes from the sugar
fields being burnt before harvesting.
On our way back, we stopped at this small place so Michele could get a
haircut. She is very happy with the results.
Tonight they have the "Welcome Home" diner offered by the Encore
We are at the second serving and they have served over 600 meals.
The food was prepared in the small kitchen in the hall.
The meal was meat loaf, mash potatoes, green beans and dessert.
The service was fast and the price was good to, free.
The wind did pick up in the afternoon and it is a strong wind.
Some of the wind gust were around 85 km/h and it was hitting the MH the
wrong way. One slide's awning was making a lot of noise. We
were even losing reception on the tv because the dish was being moved
by the wind. We actually had to close the slide for the night
because of the noise and shaking.
It still was a good day.

Boy, the MH shook because of the wind last night.
We did not do mush today.
We did have a fish fry at the club house for diner.
For $5 we ate very good.
After the meal, just before we left, one of the cook came by and gave
me some extra fried fish.
He must think I am cute and nice!!!

They have a breakfast for $5 at the club house this morning.
Hummmm! Not that good for me. I am not a fan of biscuits
I do not think I will come back for breakfast again. Michele made
the right choice when she stayed in bed.
After breakfast, there was an information session about the Thousand Trails
It is interesting, I made an appointment for Tuesday to get more
information, than I will give you more info too.
A quiet afternoon at home.

Brrrr! It went down to +5°C last night.
While we were biking, we saw this rabbit, look at his ears!
