Padre Island

A visit to Corpus Christi is not complete without a drive to Padre Island. It was a little hazy today with a bit of wind but overall quite pleasant. The road does not follow the beach but sticks to the middle of the Island. It is only after you pay the State Park fee of $10 per vehicle that the road goes over to the beaches. We stopped at the Visitor’s Centre where I bought a Bird Book and headed for the beach. The Laughing Gulls had pretty much taken the place over and were happy to stop and pose for photos:

Here is the beach in front of the Visitor’s Centre, a popular surfing area when the wind is up:
