So, after a quick tourist pit stop in New Orleans, Thursday, we hunkered down for another cold and rainy night at a primitive campsite in the middle of nowhere, Louisiana. And on day four we headed to Texas, our last state before crossing into Mexico.
We were just within reach, and a few more days of travel. The excitement was beginning to build! Since we were already a day behind schedule, and with rumors of a possible surf opportunity, we decided to land at Surfside Beach, Texas. But, the surf had a mind of its own and we pushed on to Padre Island instead. We found a great campground on Malaquite Beach and spent Friday night enjoying the sound of the waves as background music.
We woke to the excitement of Saturday, our last day in the states. We spent the morning cleaning and reorganizing our vans so when it was time, we’d be ready to relocate the boards inside during our trek across Mexico (rather than on top on the surf racks). We had a few errands to run and some last minute preparations, and then we were headed to Laredo for the night.
