We're Here! - Day 5

We left Wharton, TX this morning at about 7:45am. Most of the trip was deserted 4 lane divided highway. We stopped in Corpus Christi, TX to go to a yarn store and have lunch. They didn't have any worsted weight 50/50 wool/silk but I bought a 36" bamboo 4.5mm circular needle. When the proprietor was told we were on our way to South Padre Island (SPI), she said, "We're the closest yarn shop to SPI".

We had a delicious lunch at a Vietnamese restaurant called "Hu-Dat" and then headed westward again back to Hwy 77 for our final leg of our journey. We filled up at Kingsville, the last community of over 100 people before Raymondville - 100km away. We arrived at Brownsville and checked into our lodgings by 3:30pm. It is currently 24C.
