Loving South Padre Island

We brought our daughter Alexis and her friend Aemelia over to South Padre Island. The weather isn’t great (windy, light rain, 55ish), but we are having a great time….

First up yesterday was lunch at Pirate’s Landing in Port Isabel, right before the bridge over to the island.

After settling into our hotel, we enjoyed some oysters on the half shell ($.50/each) at Danny’s Cajun Kitchen…


From there, we ordered a pizza at our favorite, cozy Italian restaurant, and ate it in the hotel room.

Today, we visited my favorite place on South Padre Island, the Sea Turtle Rescue Center.

The center has recently moved into their new quarters. We enjoyed the educational “show” in the amphitheater

George and I shared a superb grilled red snapper sandwich for lunch while Aemelia loved her beautifully presented mussels…

Then, on to the Birding Center…

Even in the cool breeze, we had a good time walking on the boardwalk while admiring the beautiful birds.

Oops – this isn’t a bird!!!!

More to come!!!
