Ice, and not Just in our Margaritas

Our time was up on South Padre Island, so we needed to figure out, “Where Next.” A few weeks hence we’ll be joining the Florers near Tucson, but what to do in the meantime? We had a couple options: Follow the Rio Grande, stopping along then way for hiking and possibly a burrito or two.

There’s Space at the Beach!
