Del Rio

View this post on Instagram There was an historical marker just up from the Rotary Park on San Felipe Creek. More importantly, the current owner of the historic house is a VW enthusiast 😁 There was a Bug in the parking area by the street, a split window bus out back, and a bay nestled into the gorgeous lot with …

Del Rio Post Office

View this post on Instagram Del Rio – post office and a couple of historic buildings that caught my eye. Missed the courthouse! It was a busy Saturday in town, I think they'd had their Christmas celebrations. I didn't stay long, but I've added a few spots to my come back list! The Whitehead Memorial Museum looked like it'd be …

River City Doughnut

View this post on Instagram Erm 🤔 I spotted an independent(?) doughnut shop, and swung by for a treat. Suspiciously pink and orange themed, but boy, they were good. And such a selection! (Pro tip, or just my opinion, really – cake-style doughnuts tend to last a bit better if you need to stock up before heading into the wilds.) …

Amistad NRA – Campground

View this post on Instagram With Rudy's in hand, we headed back to Amistad for another $10 night, making full use of the next morning, too. Herbie's worth it 😊 • • I think I spotted Cassiopeia over my RV…anyone familiar enough with constellations to verify?! • • @amistadnps @nationalparkservice #campground #gorving #bridges #crystalclear #wetdog #happydog #stargazing #sunset #waterview #twonights …

Rudy’s BBQ

View this post on Instagram Hello, Texas!! 😋 I found the Original Rudy's, in Leon Springs, by accident earlier this year. I tried the "chop" and the creamed corn, and it's just as addictive as everyone says! They've added pulled pork to the menu, so I went with my standard order this go around, with Sissy Sauce, of course 🤣 …

Amistad NRA

View this post on Instagram There are numerous trails in Amistad National Recreation Area, but with easy water access, full sunshine, and temps inching towards the "it's hot" category, we limited our walks to the campground and trail to the day use area, with Herbie giving every indication he's happy to be a water pup. The bridge provided ample shade, …

Sanderson

View this post on Instagram This was my first time driving US-90 east of Marathon, so my first visit to Sanderson. I stopped for the post office (meh, but the bank in the background of the photo has some cool, retro stonework!), and got distracted by the little town park. So much local info (I'd like to thank Bill Smith …

Drexel Rio Grande Picnic Area

View this post on Instagram South of Laredo, US-83 hugs the Rio Grande, which means you're travelling along the Mexican border. In sections, you get close. How close? *Close* close! I found a picnic area, which looked like it was probably CCC-era, situated on a bluff over the River. I could have thrown a stone into Mexico (sorta – I'd …
