On our second day, we did the Alamo and the River Walk.
The River Walk was pretty deserted when we started out. We took our time, sitting down from time to time. Neither Doug or my knees are great.
It's very pretty.
At the end of the River Walk is a shopping mall. We got a great deal on three pair of Crocs. Buy 2 or more and get 40% of the total.
On the way back all the restaurants were open but the prices were outrageous. We went to the food court in the shopping mall.
After the River Walk we did the Alamo. You just come out of the food court, and half a block later, there it is.
The Alamo is not my cup of tea but Doug enjoyed it. It was a little more interesting to me because Graeme's girlfriend, Adrienne is the great, great, great, (maybe one more) niece of William Barrett Travis, the leader of the Texans.
Hard to read but about 7 lines down, beginning with On February 23....
Yesterday, we did a day trip without the rig, south to Corpus Christi on the Gulf of Mexico. Doug was missing the ocean!
I wanted crab cakes. I googled "best crab cakes in Corpus Christi" and got....
on Padre Island. They did not lie. Yummy. I had crab cakes. Doug had fried oysters. We shared Portobello mushrooms stuffed with crab.
We got up bright and early this morning and headed out. Speed limit of 80 mph on the I 10 sure gobbles up the gas.
We are now overnighting at Walmart in Fort Stockton, Texas.
