We got to see my son in his new home on the Texas border. He is 3 miles from the Rio Grande, which means 3 miles from Mexico.
Shopping downtown was fun.
Seeing the beautiful, historic buildings was interesting.
The landscaping was very different than what we have here in Central Texas. So pretty.
You can't get that close to the border without eating authentic Mexican food.
And you can't skip one of the prettiest, clearest lakes in Texas (also shared with Mexico).
We were able to see the entry point to Mexico from our car.
Our shopping trip resulted in 3 new pairs of shoes. I think I'll show them to you soon. And soon, we hope to return to see my son and continue exploring this unique area. John Wayne appeared in the movie "The Alamo" which was filmed in a nearby town and part of the "Lonesome Dove" set was on one of the huge ranches. I have lots of touring left to do.
