Port Isabel Texas

We departed Las Cruces NM and moved over two days to Kerrville Texas, a nice little town in the heart of the hill country. We have been in this area before and enjoy revisiting the area and its attractions. The town of Fredericksburg is about 30 miles north of Kerrville and is a great place to visit each time we return. Fredericksburg was founded by German immigrants in the mid 1800’s and retains some of the culture of the founding fathers. While in Kerrville we also visit a local meat market where they make some wonderful sausage as well as the fine Texas beef.

From Kerrville we moved to San Antonio where we spent over 12 days at Lackland Air Force Base. This took us through the Thanksgiving holiday. We were able to take some time to tour the city especially the downtown River Walk. Whenever you are in this area this is a must visit during your stay.

We next moved to Corpus Christy Texas staying in a nice campground north of the bay and located right on the water. We were able to spend a lot of time at the local beaches and enjoyed the local sea food. We particularly enjoyed the Padre Island National Seashore. This park has more than 26 miles of undeveloped beach where driving on the beach is the only way to see the park.

We are currently in Port Isabel Texas located about 25 miles northeast of Brownsville. This is a small fishing port across the Inter costal Waterway from the South Padre Island resort community. Lots of great seafood available here as well as fresh citrus. We are staying in a campground with a lot of Winter Texans who all originate in the northern states and Canada.

Well, hello neighbor!

We're at Edinburg, about 80 miles to the northwest of your location. Tomorrow I'm leading a group of bicyclists on a visit to Resaca de la Palma State Park and World Birding Center at Olmito, near Brownsville. We drive to the park arriving about 10:30 and then ride around enjoying any wildlife we can spot, mostly birds but you never know. After the ride we're off to lunch somewhere in Brownsville. We have a ride in Port Isabel scheduled sometime in January! We rode South Padre Island about a month ago.

By the way, with the current winter weather up north, there will be a huge influx of frozen Minnesotans, and even colder Canadians coming right after the holidays. Right now they are loading their RV's faster than Santa is loading his sleigh.
