Port Aransas to the Rio Grande Valley

100_4866On Saturday our month was up in Port Aransas.  It went by too fast as almost all of our destinations do.  We didn’t do and see everything we had planned.  We did get to Corpus Christi one more time and had an encounter with birds almost as if out of an Alfred Hitchcock movie.  We pulled up to a stop light and at this one and only one intersection there were birds everywhere on the power lines.  They were all yapping and it was very noisy.  Verrrrrrry Scarrrrrrrrry

100_4869But back to our move.  We packed up and left Pioneer RV Park.  Our trip was about 165 miles south.  The landscape changed south of Corpus Christi.  It was much drier and there were many cattle ranches with tons of scrub brush.  We passed the area of the famous King Ranch but did not stop for the tour and other activities there.  Others have said it is worth the stop so maybe on our way back out of the Valley.

We now are staying at Tropic Winds RV Park in Harlingen, Texas.  It is a very central location to take in the activities of the Valley.  We plan to stay here for two weeks  On Sunday, we connected with a college buddy of Gary’s, one he had not seen in over 30 years and I had never met.  John lives here in this area and gave us plenty of tips.  We will catch up with him again while we are here.  We also hope to connect with some Class of 2011 fulltimers who we met back in Florida last winter.  As usual, we will have more than enough to do here.
