From Rockport to Laredo
The only thing Rockport seemed to have more of than birds....were mosquitoes!
If this isn't called a Mickey Mouse Cactus...it sure should be!
We left Rockport this morning, as quietly as possible so as not to wake the mosquitoes. Now we are at Lake Casa Blanca International State Park in Laredo, Texas for the night. I'm not sure if we will head to Mexico tomorrow or Monday. The border is only 1/2 hour from here!!!!!
We arrived in Laredo at about 12:30. After a short walk around the park, I had a lot of pictures to upload into facebook from the last 4 days, and had to buy auto insurance online for Mexico. Then I blinked and it was after 8:00 p.m.! Oh, wait...maybe that was a nap????
It is amazing how dry it is here. I'm told this is the worst drought Texas has had in 100 years. The Lake is so low, they haven't been able to use the boat ramp for over 2 months.
There's Myrtle, looking out over the Lake.
