Jackie, this pufferfish is for you!

sunny 0 °F

I get up today and walk outside and realize that the sun is just peaking over the ocean, so I grab the camera and go for a beachwalk as the sun rises.

We pack up and take off towards Brownsville, TX.


The drive is uneventful and we arrive at the Visitors Center for the Rio Grande Valley area and the hostess gives us their list of 30 area RV parks and she explains that every single private RV park in the area is a senior citizen park for 55 and over! She tells us about one that has a liberal children's policy so we try that one and there is availibility, but Joe is uncomfortable here. I think they have room for over 1200 trailers and we do not see one kid here. (The only campground that is family oriented is on South Padre Island and we wanted something more centrally located.) Joe doesn't want to go to the pool that is filled with 'old people' and neither do I since I'm sure some of them do not want a noisy active boy there. The good news is that now we have a great reason to go to South Padre Island beach!!!

We look for seashells at the beach, but it's high tide and no shells, BUT we find a puffer fish washed up on shore and of course want to keep it for Jackie (a private family joke) but it would smell up the RV so just take a picture instead, so JACKIE: THIS PUFFER FISH IS FOR YOU :-)


It's cool and breezy on the beach but Joe doesn't care. He has a wonderful time building a sandcastle and we don't leave til dark.



Jere wants seafood for dinner so we go to Pirates Landing and have lots of food to eat. I'm starting to have second thoughts about not bringing our scale along :-)
