Introducing our friend to South Texas

LOCATION: Mission, Texas

WEATHER: Much warmer. Beautiful. High mid 70s

Our friend Heather is visiting us from Michigan/Minnesota. She is spending a month in Austin, and came down to see us for a long weekend.

We walked around our Retama Village neighborhood, then did a line-dancing class. Fun! Some of the residents of our community were having a gun swap meet in the courtyard…..

We took Heather to a real “dive” BBQ place and split a half rack of delicious babyback BBQ ribs. Heather and George couldn’t resist splitting a piece of grapefruit pie for dessert.

Back at home, we saw this beautiful green jay in the trees in our backyard.. Then, we went to the state park bird sanctuary next door and saw some more…

Then, we went to Vaqueros (Cowboy in Spanish) bar. It is an outdoor pavilion selling Bud Light mostly with a very loud band. Quite a cultural experience. (And, thank goodness they let you BYOB so we didn’t have to consume Buds)

What a cowboy!
