The campground offered a complimentary breakfast complete with "Texas Waffles" as the waffles were in the shape of the state of Texas - very cute and yummy.
We enjoyed our breakfast then headed back on the I-10 for a 270 mile drive to San Antonio. The terrain has changed to farmland and cattle range but is still flat. Saw lots of road-kill on the I-10 even an armandillo; also spotted 2 buzzards sitting together on a telephone pole watching for their next supper.
The I-10 goes directly into downtown Houston along with a maze of other highways and at one point was 9 lanes wide just for going into the city. Barry was in lead today and did a great job - especially when we had to detour one section. This is a photo I took off the internet of the downtown view - it looked just like this and the architecture was very impressive. Lana mentioned that Calgary is called "The Houston of Alberta" and I can see the similarities.
Arrived at 2 p.m. in San Antonio and we decided to relax for the rest of the day and enjoyed pina coladas and well-earned rum and cokes for the boys while we got to watch hundreds of butterflies. They were everywhere and I realized that that's what was hitting our windshield on the way into San Antonio - too bad because they are so pretty.
