Last night it was in the 30’s. We are in a McDonald’s at Noon and it is 45 and drizzling. Thank you McD’s for free wifi.
Today we took a 30 mile field trip to Rio Grande City to grocery shop, get propane, and see the local culture. It is quite an experience. Fields of onions and other crops broken by little towns. The houses vary from shacks to beautiful mansions surrounded by stone walls. Groceries seem to be very inexpensive, at least some things we are interested in: jalapeno peppers are 3# for a dollar!
The terrain is flat. The highway from Falcon Lake to Rio Grande City rarely is more than a mile from the Rio Grand River and border. There are big birds everywhere: hawks, osprey, vultures, etc. We passed a bird refuge on the way that we may go back to visit on a better weather day.
