Beach Boy Weekend

Well, the Beach Bum...uh, Beach Boy's concert at the Isle of Capri Casino in Lake Charles, LA was a smash success. We met Skip and Bobbie, our friends from the "Texas Hill Country" and Shari's sister Jean and her husband David for a great concert. The group has done a great job with the "look and sound" of the 60's and offered a tireless hour and fifteen minutes of non-stop musical entertainment. What a night.

We played hard in the casino, took home some money, more of us won than others...but such is life. The seafood dinner was great and we enjoyed the hotel and RV accommodations alike. The Isle Lake Charles has a Tower Hotel with a variety of suites with private Jacuzzi tubs, the Inn is a nice family type hotel and the RV slots are basic electric only with minimal room for slide outs to be depolyed if one is concerned with your neighbor being able to park without hitting your rig....but they are cheap.

On the way home, Skip and Bobbie were following us to High Island when the cell phone rang and it was our friends from Alto, TX, Chris and Brenda. They were going to be landing in Houston at about 4:30 and wanted us to join them for dinner, not knowing we were with mutual friends this weekend. We all hit the road again and met up at Saltgrass Steakhouse at about 5 PM for a great couple of hours talking and laughing and enjoying the great food.

All in all it was a great couple of days and happy we got to spend it with some of our favorite people.
