Today is a trip from Rockport to McAllen Tx

Map picture

We had a great trip until we got close to McAllen on a Sunday. Then as it turned out the serpentine belt left the motorhome and left us stranded.

We got a tow. The tow had to remove the drive shaft to tow us.


We had a free night of camping in the Universal Towing Yard. There was damage to the motorhome.

Aransas National Wildlife Refuge

Today we went to Aransas National Wildlife Refuge to see Whooping Cranes.

Famed as a principal wintering ground for the near-extinct whooping crane, the refuge is on a broad peninsula about 12 miles across the bay northeast of Rockport. It is administered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as a refuge for the protection and management of various species of wildlife. About 400 species of birds—Canada geese, pintail ducks, American wigeons, sandhill cranes and more—have been recorded. Other inhabitants include alligators, white-tailed deer, javelina and raccoon. Sight-seeing, nature observation, hiking and photography are permitted along designated public-use roads, trails and at observation towers; also picnic areas.


The white specks in the photo below is as close as we got to Whooping Cranes.
