2012.02.26 Trip to South Padre Island

Well, one thing of many that Texas does right is how they market the state. Even the eggs are stamped with a "Grown in Texas" stamp with the shape of the state!

Today, we decided to take a drive to South Padre Island. It is just an hour's drive and since it was sunny but cool, Homer could go along with us. We went to the Shrimp Haus at Schlitterbahn. The restaurant is on the second floor and looks out over the Gulf of Mexico. Schlitterbahn is a waterpark that will be really hopping in another month but now it is closed with no water running through it. We enjoyed delicious seafood in a calm quiet atmosphere looking out on the gulf. We could tell that this place must really get crowded during the warm weather and summer vacations!

Some of the beautiful flowers along the walkway.

Beyond the outside rail is the Gulf of Mexico. Unfortunately, my camera did not catch the waves when shooting through the restaurant windows.

Now you can see the dunes and the gulf.
