We are now in Mission, TX, at Retama Village where we have moved into up our new-to-us fifth wheel. Retama Village is an RV community where the sites are owned by individuals rather than rented. It is part of the 2,500-acre Bentsen Palm Development Master Planned Community.
The development backs up to the Rio Grande River, and is within walking distance of the thousands of acres of state and federally-protected wildlife habitat, including the World Birding Center Headquarters, the largest outdoor butterfly park in the world which is maintained by the North American Butterfly Association, and Bentsen-Rio Grande Valley State Park. The Bagley Pack especially enjoyed the dog park, which includes regulation agility equipment.
