Mmmmmm, that salt air.......

Our first, and most vivid, experience down there was with mosquitoes.

We were in the campground at Padre Island NS, as I recall, and the mosquitoes were so thick we couldn't leave the Interstate. We were covered with them any time we went outside.

We followed others to the beach, where the daytime breezes kept the buggers away. We just closed up at night, with the vent fan on, and were very comfortably lulled to sleep by the surf.

One of our best memories, ever.


🏡 🚐 Cherish and appreciate those you love. This moment could be your last.🌹🐚❤️
