I noted this sign this morning next to the RV in the Walmart parking lot. Is this such a common problem that this specific law is required, and signs have to be posted?
Louisiana, land of cheap diesel. I guess it helps to be close to the refineries:
We crossed into Texas:
We made our way down to the Bolivar Peninsula, a barrier island immediately east of Galveston Island. High tides coupled with stiff onshore winds piled up the waves, completely submerging the beach and over-washing the highway:
We now understand why they build houses on stilts here:
The plan was to disperse camp on the beach, which is legal here, but at this end of the island as well, there was no beach above water:
We drove back east on the peninsula to a fishing inlet area that allows overnight parking. We’ll re-evaluate what to do tomorrow.
See the trip map for today’s drive and our current location.
