2012.03.02 Lunch on the Rio Grande River

Yesterday, I met Doug and Gary who were on a long bike ride, at Riverside Restaurant which is on the Rio Grande River. Turns out there was a border issue right before our arrival. The border gun boats sped down the river and then came back up the river. The constables and border agents converged on the river in about 20 SUVs and ATVs. We found that it was a marijuana bust on the nightly news. Meanwhile, we enjoyed our lunch on the river.

Riverside is a large restaurant with several small spaces. Above is one of the covered patios. Below, some horses on the Mexican side of the river coming for a drink. There was even a little foal among the group.

Above is a view looking down river. Below is an outside courtyard.

Below is a view looking up river. You can see the historical chimney at Chimney RV Park. It hard to remember that this whole area was under water in the flooding during the summer of 2010.
