After a good night’s rest in Fredericksburg, we made a short visit to the ‘cowboy capital of the world’ – Bandera – before heading to the Mexican Gulf.
Generally – Bandera was a bit of a disappointment. There was only a couple of shops on the main street selling mainly tourist souvenirs. There was a couple of good looking restaurants, but as it was too early for lunch the tourist shops didn’t offer much to browse about. Perhaps some side street would have had some contained wild west pearls – but not on the main street.
One of the shops had this sign on the window – humor, I hope.
Cruise through rest of the Texas Hill Country country side – viewing ranches and loads of country side was rather swift and easy. Whataburger offered a load of calories in a compact format. Good burgers again. Temperature peaked at 37C. Closer to the coast the temperatures dropped to 32 – warm enough.
Early afternoon we arrived at Corpus Christi – took a peek on the beach and headed to the hotel. Parking permit for the beach (HUGE) acquired – and ready for more action tomorrow – let’s see if we can find a surf school or more fun action.
