South Texas

We are now located in Aransas Pass Texas about half an hour's ride north of Corpus Christi. The whole of south Texas is very flat with long straight roads and very little traffic especially on the side roads. Even Barb was creeping up around 140 kph yesterday on our Breakfast Ride which ended up in Palacios, a rather small town with a huge shrimp fleet. Lots of oil rigs, natural gas wells and wind generators throughout the countryside but despite the wealth that this would bring, there are still many small towns that appear totally run down. First picture is the Cooks Truck at our breakfast spot, the other two pictures are of the water front in the beautiful town of Palacios.
