We drove over to South Padre Island today. It was a beautiful day, not too much wind, lots of blue sky, and temperatures in the low 80â€™s. SPI is a huge Spring Break destination, but this time of year itâ€™s just full of Winter Texans and locals enjoying some great fishing and beach time. We drove to the end of the road and then took a nice walk along the beach. Then we drove about 5 miles back to a beach access road, and actually drove up the beach for about 15 miles. It was pretty cool! When we couldnâ€™t see any cars ahead of us, we decided it was time to turn around. First, though, we stopped and enjoyed a snack on our tail-gate. What fun! We had a great seafood dinner (broiled not fried!), and enjoyed a peaceful drive home. It was a beautiful time.
Here are some shots from the dayâ€¦â€¦
This is the bridge to the island. I wonder if those are killer pelicansâ€¦..
This could be us (eventually!). This guy was camped on the side of the road – with all of his STUFF – solar panels, wind generator, two motorcycles (on the truck bed), bicycles (on front of truck), and an internet satellite dish! My oh My!
And just plain lookingâ€¦..
As I said, a beautiful day!
