Brownsville…The Southern-Most Point in Texas.

Yesterday we drove the motorhome the about 25 miles from Port Isabel to Brownsville, Texas.

We spent the night parked at VFW Post #2085. Now that we have reached the southern-most point in Texas, at this latitude the Gulf of Mexico forces us to drive North to continue our journey. Later this morning we’ll drive the about 120 miles to Kingsville, Texas.

Brownsville is unique in that it is located at the southern-most tip of Texas and across a not-very-wide Rio Grande River lies another country…Mexico. Because Brownsville is also close to the Gulf of Mexico, it has a most interesting history. You can read its history by clicking this Wikipedia link…,_Texas

As always, I like to show the view from the dinette window…


After our arrival at the VFW yesterday morning, we unhooked the Bronco and drove the about five miles to old town area of Brownsville. The museum was the kind I really like…it had lots of old black and white photos. We also visited the Stillman House (founder of Brownsville) adjacent to the museum. After another shrimp lunch we visited the Costumes of the Americas Museum. Here is the link to the Brownsville Historical Complex Museum’s website…

Here are some of the photos that I took…

Enjoying interesting old historical cities is another joy of the full-time Rving lifestyle!!!
