Goodbye Wind Point Park

When we first arrived at Wind Point Park, we had no idea what to expect. We had a basic idea of our job descriptions but we were stepping into unknown territory. Our initial commitment was 3 months. We said, “Beyond that, we’ll stay as long as it is mutually beneficial.” Time passed quickly. We made new friends. People who truly impacted our lives. To be quite honest, we also met some people we weren’t terribly fond of, but, let’s face it that happens everywhere. Our overall experience was a happy one.

When we set out on this new adventure, it was never our intent to find a happy place and call it home (at least not yet). Each place we stay is meant to be a visit. There are far too many places to see to put down new roots.

We decided to leave on Dec. 19th, a little over 5 months after we arrived. The week before we left, was filled with evenings with our new friends.  Dinner with Ivan and Josie…Dinner with Jerry and Janelle…Dinner with Scott and Reja…Dinner with Nancy…Hugs and well wishes from so many people…and our final campfire…

Before we left, we walked over to see Meda. She is a long term lease holder who moved in a few months ago. She had just gotten her smoker and we wanted to see it…

Is that cool or what!

Nancy gave us an early Christmas present…

In case you are wondering, the “dog butt” is a leash holder. The “Where’s Waldo” candy bar was perfect!

The morning of the 19th was rainy and miserable for packing up…

Thank you Josie for taking the picture

Despite the rain, lots of people stopped by for a final farewell…

My apologies to Jerry and Janelle, we didn’t get a picture with you, but your homemade road snacks were awesome!

I haven’t come close to mentioning everyone who made our time at Wind Point Park so memorable.

A part of us will stay in Lone Oak with all of you…

And I painted a reminder, in case you do start to forget us…

A special “Thank you” to the park owner, Ryan, for giving us our workamping start.

Next stop…Galveston!

  2. What a year you have had. Such an inspiration you two are in showing that it is not things that make one happy and home can be anywhere as long as you are with the right person. Wishing you all the very best in 2018 and many happy adventures.

  3. This looks like such a great experience–especially since you go to meet some wonderful friends and had some pretty cool adventures along the way. I am so excited to hear about your trip to Alaska and will be following. We are hoping to make it up there, but probably not until 2020. I love your posts!
