A trip to Padre Island


We had our first day of sun in a week, so this seemed like a good time to visit Padre Island.  It’s kind of quiet, before Spring Break, and that suits us just fine.

A beached jellyfish, still colorful

Shorebirds, looking for a meal

Need a beach towel? Bathing suit? No problem!

Shrimp Haus: all you can eat shrimp and $3 margaritas!

A tourist boat, no real pirates here

    Its been many years since I visited Padre Island. I remember it being a LOT longer drive from Plano than I thought it would be.

    Are you sure that’s a cormorant … looks kind of small.
