Not much to report today. We drove from Austin to Beaumont, Texas in just under four hours with only a ten-minute stop for tea and restrooms. Not that we're in a hurry, but Lulu planned it that way so we could watch the Netherlands play Argentina in the three 'o clock game (we're in Central time now) in our hotel room. After the disappointing game, we ...
We had planned to have continental breakfast at the hotel around 8:30, but we were running a little late. Breakfast ended at 9:00, but the lady at the hotel brought some food out for us even though it was 8:55. We thought 9:00 was early for breakfast to end, but at least we got something.

We had made plans to meet up with birding legend Iain Campbell from Tropical Birding Tours (he does birding tours around the world, Laurie knew him from a tip he gave him while in Darwin to find a Little Kingfisher nest). He showed us around the best spots to go birding, we saw lots including the famous warblers that people flock here to ...
... on stilts along the ocean side of the road and Galveston Bay on the other it all looked a bit bleak with a few convenience stores and apartments. TomTom wasn't showing any hotels so we decided to take a road north to Winnie where there were several, we decided on the La Quinta which was very nice and the receptionist told us there was a restaurant next door, Al-Ts Cajun restaurant. Well I wanted to see typical local places & this ...
