Tuesday on the South Coast of Texas

As this part of Texas is tropical, there are loads of beautiful flowers. Yesterday we spent the day, first eating breakfast at the Grapevine on South Padre Island and next a visit to the Texas Cathouse...for gifts for some of the grandchildren. Then we motored on down the road until we got to the entrance to the beach, and we drove up the beach a little ways. The beach has not recovered from Hurricane Rita, so it's not nearly as nice as in previous years. But I waded in the water while Raf took photos. Then we drove back through Port Isabel, past its light house and on to Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge. The photos and movies below are in the order they were taken.

















Laguna Atascosa, a National Wildlife Refuge, is located in Cameron County, the southern most county in Texas.

The flowers are just fabulous. And I love lighthouses!

I've not been down there, but my dad was stationed in Corpus Christie just before I was born. I'd love to come down there sometime.
