Monday was the most beautiful day we've had since we arrived, almost a month ago. We took advantage of the weather and drove across the big bridge over to North Padre Island. We just turned left on one of the public beach roads, and this is where we ended up. The Gulf was covered in diamonds sparkling in the afternoon sun, and someone was apparently trusting that no fish would take the bait on the end of this line and interrupt the little snooze he was taking on the pier. There were a lot of folks fishing, I didn't see anyone catching anything, no one seemed to care, and I think the sole purpose of the afternoon on the pier was to soak in the sun.
Or maybe to just gaze off into the distance along the shoreline.
Pictured below is the road we were driving on.....the sand! It's a super highway on bright sunny afternoons!
On one side was the Gulf with several oil platforms off in the distance.
Some of the travelers on the highway weren't in cars. Doesn't this look like fun?
it was a beautiful day in Texas.
