We wore our green shirts in honour of St. Patrick's Day.
The border wall and a gate through it (which is monitored 24/7) is adjacent to the park.
This pavilion provides lots of shade for park visitors.
I imagine it serves as the site for many weddings as the surroundings are green and lush with bird- and butterfly-attracting vegetation.
First, I spotted a Couch's (or possibly tropical) kingbird.
We worked up quite an appetite so popped into Delia's (a tamale fast-food franchise restaurant) for lunch.
After lunch we went to Jo-Ann Fabrics - probably the only one south of Corpus Christi - so I could pick up some more cross-stitch and sewing supplies.
We're back at the suite hotel (Drury Inn & Suites) now where we are getting ready to consume our three free drinks and free snacks .
It was a very productive and fun day. Oh yeah, and it's 29C and sunny here.
