Rio Grande City

South Texas has many small towns so we looked on the map for a new place to visit and headed to  Rio Grande City.  I guess they use the term "city" loosely because the population is about 12, 000 and I think everyone was either sleeping in or at church when we drove in.   Nevertheless, this small city seems to have embraced a little Tangerine Tango. 
 There are many abandoned yet beautiful buildings but this is the one that stood out the most as we drove through.

Although Rio Grande City used to be a bustling town in the 1840s with trade to Mexico, today it is a sweet sleepy town.  To be honest, there wasn't much going on that we could see but it's always nice to stop and take in a new "city."

and you took some great pictures. I forgot to tell you I had my house painted Sea Holly green and cream. I got the inspiration from a post "This Free Bird" did on a house in California.

The city looks beautiful and the colors are so vibrant! The building itself look like it is rich in history.
