Under the shade of a Flamboyan tree, I stopped to take in the scenery of the crystal clear waters from El Malecón, a mini boardwalk. On this side to the street is a wide sidewalk with incredible views of the Caribbean Sea. On the opposite side is a row restaurants, bars and a museum.
This year due to rains at the right times, wildflowers are blooming nicely in Central Texas. As you drive around you see families pulling over on the side of the road to take pictures in the flowers. The Bluebonnet is the state flower of Texas.
