Padre Island Nat'l Seashore, TX
I would like to mention the fact that I am NOT your normal "beach person", but Padre Island Nat'l Seashore has a special place in my heart. Due to the dunes, the grass plains on the island and the history of the island!!! And the wildlife!
Made it to Padre Island Nat'l Seashore! And it is just a gorgeous as it always has been! Maybe even better right now due to the fact that Hurricane Hanna (Anna...don't remember) moved the sand dunes back about 50 yards!
So the beach is a lot wider than it had been!
In past years I was not able to drive much past the 5 Milepost...that is not a large issue now! I drove Lily all the way down to roughly the 22 mile point on the beach. Sand started to get just a bit deeper there as you can tell! So I headed back up the beach. Now, you have to know, that the drive to the seawall/channel on the Island is about 61 miles from the end of the pavement!
It was a grand stay for 6 days! The weather was quite good for this time of the year.The wind was not real bad and it was quite sunny! Felt great the majority of the time I was there this time.
OH....and I have to say that the coyote that live on the Island are the largest I've ever seen! They rival wolves in size!
And...as is the case on most beaches...the sunrise/sunsets are almost always worthy of photos!!
Most of the mornings were just so grand!
And the sunsets were just awesome!
Right now I'm back in Corpus Christi at the kids place for a couple of days. There is another cold front coming, NWS is calling rain for the next 3 days. Grrrr.
I'm hoping to be back on the beach by this upcoming weekend. And I'll be in the area for a couple of weeks yet!
Hope you are getting out to the woods or the beach or just out of the cities and hunting up Nature!! You'll never regret it!!
On the Road Again!! :-)
Well, as they say, better late than never!! Ooopppsss!! I didn't realize that I had not gotten this posted! So...now it is!!! 🐸
Abbie & I are back on the road again! About time, Huh!! And we would agree completely! LOL! So where are we headed??
First stop was Tyler, TX to visit some friends that we haven't seen in several years! All are doing well and it was a good visit.
Next....we're on the road headed to Corpus Christi, TX to visit my daughter and her hubby. And I will also take a few days...maybe more than a few days....to spend time on Padre Island! I am not your normal "beach loving" individual, but I have grown to enjoy the beach on Padre. And this time of the year there are not very many people on the beaches....just strange individuals such as myself that really like the quiet and lack of activity!! LOL!
I'm currently sitting near La Grange, TX waiting out the cold and messy weather that is passing through. And....after driving over 700 miles in 2 days I just needed to take a break! I'm out of practice driving those kind of miles. Plus....it's 32 degrees and raining/sleeting and I didn't want to drive in it!! LOL!
