One of the things I bought last week at Ikea in Dallas (Frisco) was a set of LED lights that I thought would work well for interior lighting in our motor home. I was delighted to find that several (I wrongly assumed all) of their lights worked on 12 volts DC power. I purchased a couple reading lamps with an LED light on the end of a flexible stalk for $10 each that on closer inspection work on 4 volts DC. Of course I found out the hard way when I wired one into the 12 volt wire in the bedroom and fried it! Thankfully, the other lights are 12V and seem to work well. We like the idea of diffused lighting in the evenings, the overhead lights are just too harsh, and we have task lights for reading, so the LED light strip at the top of the crown molding solves the problem.
After a morning of cleaning and fiddling with lighting, Joan and I took an excursion south to Aransas Pass, and from there, by ferry, over to Mustang Island and Port Aransas.
The Port of Corpus Christi is the fifth largest port in the US in terms of tons of material moving in and out. It turns out that all those ships have to come and go through the barrier islands in a narrow ship channel that includes Port Aransas.
Joan recognized that we left out a picture of the pier at our RV park so she snapped this photo so you could all see what we were describing.
Joan adds that travelling a lot means occasionally waking up and having to take a quick moment to remember what town (park) you are in!
We hope you are all happy and well this Holiday Season.
Jeff and Joan
