Life on the Road: Brazos Bend State Park, Texas

This is a part of a ‘series’ of posts, sharing pictures and stories from my parent’s cross-country RV adventure. Since November 2016, Mom and Bill have been living life on the road with their dog, Monty. They have no itinerary and no end-of-the-road, save for a summer in Alaska 2017.

Mom and Bill issued a challenge for a Bloody-Mary off. The rules are unclear, but participation has been simple so far. Order a Bloody, take a picture and share. If you want in, simply share your pictures!
