Today, I ended my holiday break in a very chilly San Antonio. Sorry for the obnoxious title but basketball season is in full throttle and the spurs are my team.(!!!!) Not really, but everyone loves to say that here and rep the spurs with flags and stickers on their cars. Gotta admire that pride, huh? Anyways back to the important stuff, I am feeling very excited but anxious about the next five months. I can't believe the first leg of my journey is already here and about to ...
Day 6Off to San Antonio to visit Evan and Morgan. But first a drive down the coast see the mud flats, birds and sand dunes that are along the drive. Great views of the coast along the bluewater highway. Then headed inland through marshes and then into oil fields and processing plants again.

We ended up going to the mall (I didn't buy anything) and then the American institution of Hooters Restaurant for dinner. I can now check that off my list.
Not much else to report today, tomorrow is better weather so exploring we will go.
