We chose Lake Charles because it is so convenient to the Houston area.
See? Just 132 miles. We can do that in just under three hours from our house!
It was a relaxing weekend filled with pool time for the girls, golf for the guys and lots of chill time.
I actually made it out to the man made beach one morning for some quiet time!
the hotel balcony in Santa Monica... the view of the Gulf of Mexico on South Padre Island...or even the one from the house on Lake Conroe...but it was still a view of the water.
And of course, when you travel with friends you always have to eat!
We tried out many of the hotel restaurants and on our last night, we went to Porter's favorite restaurant, Steamboat Bill's. It must not be a big secret...it is voted #1 for Seafood after all. Plus there were articles from Southern Living, Coastal Living and USA Today declaring it's wonders. I had the boiled shrimp and they were DELICIOUS! More flavorful than most of the places you visit.
All in all, it was a wonderfully relaxing weekend spent with some of my favorite people. And I can hardly wait to do it again!
