Spent a lovely day here on South Padre Island. This is the off-season here, yet there are so many snow-birds here in their RVs that restaurants and the like are fairly crowded. I can only imagine what this place is like during spring break (when hotel room rates essentially triple from what they are now).

Tomorrow we will head out of here, after a quick loop around the tourist district. We will head down to Brownsville, then follow the Rio Grande inland. Our immediate objective is Mission, TX where there is both a Home Depot and a Camping World (hey -- we lead an exciting life). We need the former for parts to repair the rear leveler, and the latter for parts we need for the, umm, waste disposal system. Maybe we'll get lucky and there'll be a Wal-Mart there as well...
