Progreso Mexico


Rockport, Texas
Saltwater Flats RV Resort
Weather Condition; High 82 Low 60, Cloudy

Yesterday we drove to Progreso Mexico with our friends Bob and Pauline. We woke up early to leave by 7:30 A.M. We stopped off at the Bakery Café for breakfast in Aransas Pass before getting on the road.

The drive is about three hours. We didn’t see much because there isn’t a lot to see between Corpus Christi and the Mexican border.

We arrived at the border a little after eleven. We parked on the Texas side and walked across. We didn’t encounter any lines.


Street vendors lined both sides of the sidewalks. It was almost impossible in a few places to walk thru the crowds.

We slid into a bakery so Bob could have a pastry and a coke. We listened to the mariachis play. 


Afterwards we were back out on the sidewalk maneuvering thru the crowds and vendors.

Dawn found a T-shirt and we picked up a few things for a friend.  We were back at the truck by two or two-thirty.

Bob drove us to Donna to the flea market so we could get some fresh produce. We bought grapefruits, oranges, limes, cilantro and watermelon.

We had intentions to walk thru the flea market and look around but we were all tired. We returned to the truck and headed back to Rockport. Bob stopped in Kingsville and we had dinner at Whataburger.

We arrived home a little after seven.

Our fur kids were really glad to see us. Several of our neighbors took turns checking on them throughout the day.

Our neighbor Marsha came over shortly after we got home. She brought over a bottle of margarita. She and Dawn sat outside until ten talking and laughing. I took a shower and went to bed!

  3. We crossed there once..We were staying at Falcon Lake State Park in Roma, which is just up from Rio Grande City...It was about 1 1/2 hours drive for us...Glad you had a good time...We won't cross again for a long time...Those border towns are scary to me...Were there any armed Mexican Policia??When we were there, they had them right in town, with machine guns...SHEESH!!

  5. We are fortunate to be spending the winter months with the Cruzin2some and feel very fortunate to have met them. They love life, are full of enthusiasm and enjoy people. This blog is great, photos are professional. Both girls are gifted and share those gifts with others. We are having a lot of fun this winter and it wouldn't be the same if the Cruzin2some was not a part of it! Thanks girls.
