This was our first time to visit Padre Island.
This is the Visitor’s Center and the Gift Shop.
Plastic replica of the turtles that come here to lay their eggs.
One of the walkways down to the beach.
Where the bricks end and the sand begins.
Visitor’s Center from the beach side.
Huge flock of Pelicans. They flew over several times.
View of the surf as the tide was out.
One of several dead blow fish left up on the sand.
Tree out in the water.
The picture doesn’t do the butterfly shells justice. They were very pretty pinks, purple and blue.
No trip to the beach is complete without the gulls on the posts.
Back in town we stopped at the t-shirt “Castle”
