    Sabine Pass, Texas - Sea Rim State Park

    March 6 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 48 °F

    We have arrived in Texas!

    Some days it's better just to be lucky. We have stumbled upon a beautiful Texas State Park, Sea Rim. There's space for only 15 campers and we are one of the lucky 15. We are camped right on the Gulf of Mexico. WOW!

    The drive from the interstate highway to the Park was an adventure in itself and while interesting, it couldn't be confused with scenic. The approach to Sea Rim SP took us through the port city of Port Arthur. This city is home to the largest oil refineries in the US and is the center of a very large oil refinery network. How anyone can control and track all the pipelines and oil tanks in this labyrinth is both a mystery and marvel.

    Back to Sea Rim State Park. It is a remote secluded gem. It's "Where the Gulf Meets the Marsh". There are acres to explore and miles of accessible beach. It's small size and seclusion lends itself to quiet serene enjoyment.

    There is one opportunity for potential excitement. You have to take notice when you find posted, "Alligator Ettiquette".
