Since my daughter lives in San Antonio now with my grandson we had to spend some time there before heading over to Corpus Christi. Clyde's daughter and hubby live near Austin so our first trip was over that way to visit with them. We spent a nice afternoon at their lovely house along with an evening out for dinner. When they suggested Chinese barbeque we were a bit skeptical, but turns out it was very tasty and cheap too.
The next few days had us hanging out with my grandson Vash and his Mom Desiree. One day we took Vash to the San Antonio Zoo for a day of fun and exploring. But being the fussy eater that he is we never get to sugar him up and send him back to Mama, something that grandparents usually enjoy. However we did create some cherished moments with him and Desi and took a few photos along the way as keepsakes.

After our visit to the San Antonio and Austin area we headed over to Ingleside where we'd spend the rest of our time in Texas. Our good friends Ronny and Andrea graciously put us up every year giving us free run of their home. They're gorgeous back yard features a pool, hot tub, large aviary, chicken coop, green house, pond and gardens full of flowering plants and fruit trees.

Much of our short visit in Texas is spent visiting family and friends as well as stocking up on things that we can't easily find in Panama. And while it's always nice to visit Texas it's just as nice to come back home to Panama and resume our life here.....along the gringo trail.
