A day on the island………

That’s South Padre Island,Texas. #2 son and wife have been visiting this week and had brought a motorcycle with so we could do some riding. Well, the weather was not good for such activity……til yesterday…..so off we went.

A view of the island from the mainland/Port Isabel…………….

A shrimp/seafood meal at “Dirty Al’s” is a must!!!!

My choice (always!): blackened shrimp tacos!!!!!! Combined with a Mexican soda.

Our little place has returned to quiet as the ‘kids’ took off for the frozen northern regions/MN this morning.

      Got a text last night (Sat.) and son/wife had gotten home around 7 pm. His thoughts were that he would definitely rather be back here til ’bout, oh, May!!!! LOL! He’s a long-haul trucker and leaves for CA tomorrow a.m. (Mon) with a serious snowstorm headed towards MN from the West Coast. UGH!!!!
      We had an awesome time on the island but really wished we could have gotten more than 1 day that was decent……sigh……………..

    Awww glad you had fun with your sweet family! I bet you wont be missing the 8 -12 inches fore- casted for down around your place here in Minnesota. 6 -11 here in Rochester, but I’ll have to see it to believe it. I hope we get the 11 inches.

  6. What a lovely day you have had!
    Enjoy the sun…. Just rain and wind here!
    Hugs
