On Super Saturday we all gathered
at the Riverside Grill and boarded
our cruise ship for a 2 hour cruise up the
Rio Grande River. We cruised past the
Chimney Rock RV Park on the US side of the river and we saw
recreational facilities on the Mexico side of the river.
All along the river we were reminded of the awesome job of the Border Patrol. We saw
land patrol. The boat driver pointed out
places along the river where it is obvious that the illegal's enter the river.
we found these guys swimming in the river. However, they don’t seem to be bothered about which side of the river they are on. LOL
We also saw
this pretty restaurant on the Mexico side of the river. Sorry, we couldn’t stop, but not everyone on the cruise had their passports. But, soon, we were back
to our restaurant and it was lunchtime! We also had the pleasure of sharing
Arlene’s birthday with her. So,
Happy Birthday, Arlene. Later in the evening,
we gathered at Kevin and Arlene’s for
birthday cake, and continued our visiting until time for all to go home.
Today, everyone planned to go out to the Don Wes Flea Market. Well, everyone, but us and Rod and Deb…and the four of us rented
this ATV and were off for an adventure. We traveled
on the levee road…and
on the back road…and
on the jungle road.
We saw a coyote, that was too fast for the camera and
this hawk who was looking for dinner.
We traveled on to a big field were we took
a much needed break.
our driver said, it was time to get back….because soon
our guests would be arriving and they would be ready to eat! And, that also meant it would be time for a
a little football! And, we all know how that
turned out….some where happy and
some were a little disappointed!
But what a great game it was and congratulations to the Saints!!
As we ended this super weekend, we are all disappointed to have to say good-bye to Rod and Deb. They will be traveling tomorrow up to San Antonio to visit with their son for a few weeks. But, we look forward to their return in March to Rockport.
Travel safe and see you soon!
