Our 3rd Week in the Valley

We have been so busy that I have not had time to update our blog….

We have had such a good time here relaxing and reconnecting with friends.


Monday, Mac and I made a trip to Mexico.




This is just outside of Arturo’s Mexican Restaurant…


We wanted to look around and wanted to get some Alcohol and Medications. I also bought some pendants for my jewelry making. Got a good price on them and I am anxious to make some necklaces with them.

We also had lunch at the Mexico side Arturo’s Mexican Restaurant. I had the Chalupa’s and Mac had some little Pork sandwiches.  They were both very good. Their salsa has a lot to be desired though…too much cilantro.

Tuesday, we just hung out at the RV and didn’t do too much. It is nice to just sit around with nothing that you have to do.

Wednesday, Mark & Dortha, Nolan & Donna met at our RV and we headed out to The Riverside Grill for an early dinner/late lunch.

This restaurant is right on the Rio Grande river. We had a good lunch. Some of us had Chicken Strips, Crispy Chicken Salad, and some the Pork Tenderloin Sandwich.

Here the Pork Tenderloin Sandwich…huge!!


After lunch we went outside to just take in the view…it was nice sitting outside and visiting.

Here are a few views of the outside and the river:










We had a great day with wonderful friends.

Thursday, Nolan & Donna, and Mark & Dortha met us at our RV and we were off early, 10:30am for lunch. Nolan drove, with Mark & Dortha following us. They had to check on a recall for their Motorhome after lunch. Yea, lunch that early…yes, we went to a Hamburger joint called Gonzales, that opens at 10:45am and stays open until 3:00pm or until their meat runs out. They grow their own beef and grind only a certain amount every day and when the meat runs out they turn the sign to “Closed”. They are always crowded so if you want to eat, you better be there early.

Here are some photos of our lunch today with Mark & Dortha, Nolan & Donna, and Chuck & Kathy.






This is my cheeseburger…They are so big that I can only eat 1/2 of it…

Outside after lunch trying to make a plan to head to Mexico for pedicures one day next week…


This is the outside of Gonzales…No signs or anything to make you believe that it is a restaurant…


After lunch, we took the scenic route back to the RV Park and happened upon this old Seminary that has fallen into ruin.



Tomorrow is another day and we have tentative plans for a trip to the Don Wes Flea Market…

Stay tuned for our next adventures..

Hugs to all!!
