Don and I had a wonderful day together today. It was the first time we have been back to South Padre Island since our honeymoon four and a half years ago.
This album contains pictures I took from the Pier 19 area where we ate lunch.
The next album contains pictures taken while we were on the beach.
There is a new Bird Center on South Padre that was opened in 2009. We spent over an hour here on the mile plus board walks. The guide told us of all the plants, birds, butterflies, fish, turtles, and alligators in this natural preserve. We never saw an alligator, but Don loved the “shell crabs” and I loved the falcon having dinner
We learned today that the Laguna Madre is not very deep and thus the water is more salty than the Gulf of Mexico.
Thank you, God, for the glory of your creation and thank you, Don, for a wonderful “date day.”
