We met some of the same people from the year before. Linda & Martin who were across from us and Horst (the accordion player) and his wife were there as well. Horst entertained us many nights outside our window with his accordion playing. We went to Mexico a couple of times with Linda & Martin, also went bowling and out to dinner as well. We went to a great burger place in Donna, Gonzalez’s, the burgers were huge and so delicious.
We attended the ‘Fiesta La Feria’, the local town’s fair, great entertainment and Mexican food. Took in the ‘Rio Grande Valley Livestock Show’ a local fair in Mercedes, TX, again great entertainment and local food. Another stop was Progresso, Mexico for ‘Winter Texan’s Appreciation Day’ something you shouldn’t miss. And of course don’t miss the ‘Onion Fest’ in Westaco, TX if you like Blooming Onions and a good horse show.
A few other stops were the ‘Gladys Porter Zoo’ in Brownsville, TX, Riverboat Trip on the Rio Grande in South Conway, TX and ride to South Padre Island, TX (have to eat at Dirty Al’s).
About a week before we left, we got into an accident right before the campground entrance. We got stuck in La Feria another 2 weeks as our truck had to be fixed to the tune of $5,000.00, not a great way to end our stay there.
