Day 21 – Edinburg & McAllen, TX– Gulf Coast / Rio Grande Trip

No Travel Mileage Today

The rain still continues to follow us. No pictures today due to rain. We did however drive to the city of Edinburg and McAllen for a look see. Raija found the World Birding Center in Edinburg that she wants to go back to when the weather clears.

We stopped for lunch at a Mexican restaurant near McAllen and discovered that one can enjoy being in Mexico in this part of the US. We had to quickly brush up on our limited Spanish as the waitress did not speak English.

The forecast for tomorrow is clear skies so South Padre Island is on the agenda. We may have to change our cuisine back to seafood while on South Padre Island.

I had to work in McAllen once. I remember getting to my rental car - the windows were all fogged up. My hotel was the same. Very humid.
