Off the Main Road

After the ferry ride and potty break at Los Ebanos, we stopped at the Riverside Club for a bite to eat and check on getting reservations for a curise on the Rio Grande River. I had been told that the Pork Tenderloin sandwich was the item to get, so I ordered one. Leah ordered a hamburger. When our food came, we noticed the hamburger appeared to have been deep fried and was concerned it might be kind of chewy. My Pork Tenderloin sandwich was not a disappointment.

We came across a field of cabbages being harvested. We were surprised to see the heads were being put into boxes while still in the field. I thought this step would have been done at a warehouse or processing plant.

Next to the cabbage field was field of Texas Sweet Onions. Down here in the RGV they do not lack an availability of fresh produce.
