Austin Texas turned out to be a favorite city in the lone star state. You may have guessed that we tend to judge a city by the quality and variety of its food. Well, Eddie V's at happy hour turned out to be a real find. Oysters in the half shell for 35 cents each -- kept us coming back for more. Here are a few shots of Austin including the state capital. Oh, while in Austin do not miss the nightly flight of the bats -- millions of bats fly out from underneath an overpass for a night of feeding on insects. Makes you wonder what Texas would be like without these nightly mosquito eliminators.

More from San Antonio --
Hello all, here are some more shots from San Antonio. Those avacodoes end up as the best Guacamole you will ever eat -- direct from Boudro's on the river walk. Do NOT visit San Antonio unless you include at least one meal at Boudro's. Here's a travel tip -- don't wait in line to see the inside of the Alamo, as these people did. Go 'round the back and walk in -- not much inside anyway. Next posting will be from Austin.

Greeting to all -- well we gave Corpus Christi a good run for the money, but I still say save your dollars and skip it. Here is a good shot of downtown and some detail shots of our favorite cultural hang out, the Porch Bar. On the good side, we went for a gambling cruise and Jann wore Robert Brocke's lucky yellow hat and it if big in three card poker. Jann rules at three card poker. Harold, I met several folks who remember you from WW 2 days. One of the ladies said she was still waiting for the support check. Next stop Galveston. Stay tuned.

Shots of San Antonio Mardi Grau parade. Rusty our trusty guard cat. Rusty stands in front of our door at every camp site and guards against any intruder. Do not be fooled, Rusty is one tough cat. Finally, another view of the San Antonio river walk. Scenes of Corpus Christi coming up.

Greetings to all -- we are currently headquartered in Corpus Christi TX -- so far I have to advise you to save your money and skip this place. We will check out Galveston, Austin and Houston before we leave this part of the world. Here are a couple of photos -- no particular order, just nice shots of the scenery we have been enjoying.
