Driven off the beach....

The tide and wind have conspired against me staying on the beach (it got up to my door yesterday afternoon and will likely be higher today) so I have retreated to Bird Island CG here in the park for a bit. It was rough going towing out this morning, suffice it to say NOTHING is in its assigned place anymore. On the up side, I just looked at the weather everyone else is having right now and I have to say that cool and overcast could be much worse indeed.....

I'm looking forward to that! It looks like the next week will have some rewarding days weather wise. It sure is nicer out here than most places in the US right now. If all works out I hope to take one of the nice days for a trip to the wildlife refuge and maybe a trip down beach if the 4x4 group gets it together (I have 2wd only).

sun today

We got some sun again today, windy and mid 70s I guess. I laid about and spent some time photographing the sailboarding crowd. I snagged this shot at the end of the day.

Rodney, we've had more than 2 feet of snow in the past two weeks. Had a challenging trip across the mountains yesterday coming home from the in-laws in Pueblo. The mountains are covered in white as is everything else and all is serene under a blue sky. At 9 am, 6˚. I feel soooo sorry for you lounging about on the beach.

Great photo at the end of the day. You could be taking pictures of snowboarders, of course. Make the best of your plight.

Gene

Rodney, we sure enjoyed boondocking with you on Padre. Did you have time to visit the wildlife refuge? How was the rest of your trip?

Laura
