Our Own Beach

Click for Port Isabel, Texas Forecast

What a difference a day makes.  Following the Labor Day weekend the crowds disappeared.  A few showers breezed by inland, but we stayed dry on the beach. There were absolutely no other beach-goers for miles in either direction.

Looking south from our location you might also notice the absence of seaweed.


The same goes for the view to the north.  You’ll also notice the lack of shells.  It is amazing how the beach changes.  Compare the shell deposits to an earlier visit to SPI this year. (Click Here)


Tinka came up with the best way to keep our umbrella from blowing away by strapping it to the Jeep bumper.

With water temperatures around 86 degrees (30 C), we couldn’t have asked for better conditions.

Our week at South Padre Island turned out to be the best medicine for relaxation after our 8000 mile (13,000 KM) summer trip.  We’ve now moved inland about 70 miles to the Weslaco area for a while.

Tinka is off to Canada to visit her mother and sister for about a week.
