I spent a quiet, comfortable night by the water in Port Mansfield, Texas. You can camp free for three nights in Fred Stone Park, on Laguna Madre. I went to sleep thinking I'd stay another night or two, but when I awoke this morning I realized the Texas coast just isn't my thing. It's not bad, and I'm certain a lot of people really love it, but for me... shrug. I felt the same way after making pancakes and watching deer stroll by.
So after I post this I'll start heading west. Along the way I'll figure out where I want to be next. New Mexico, maybe. I like New Mexico.
