South Padre Island

We took a drive to South Padre Island at the very southern tip of Texas. As we were going across the causeway to the island, we spied a wind surfer – He is the little dot in the sky in the center of the photo (you can click on the photo to get it to enlarge).

I zoomed in on this photo so you could see him closer. We later saw parachute wind surfers. Since it was a super windy day, they were having a hard time keeping their boards on the water.

Well, we figured out Homer is not a beach dog! Today he got sand in his eye and did not like that at all!

We, also, figured out we aren't beach lovers either. Short visits are fine. We have been scouting a place where we might want to stay for the dead of winter next year. We decide this year that Yuma, AZ might be nice and warm, but it is so windy and dusty from all the agriculture going on there. Tucson, AZ gets too cold at night for us. San Antonio, the same as Tucson. Mostly warm days but 40's at night. We love Port Aransas and Corpus Christi but after spending a whole month there, we decided the shore is nice to visit for a week or two but it is too humid to stay there all winter. So we have spent the last two weeks in the Rio Grande Valley relaxing in the sunshine, the warmth (80's & 90's), and search for the ideal location for us for the dead of winter next year.

We have a couple more days here before we slowly make our way north. We'll stop a few days in San Antonio and then head to Red Bay, AL to have some work done on the motorhome. Not sure what we will do after that until it gets warmer in PA but that is the fun of fulltiming!

Thanks for stopping by – check back again!
