Sunrises at the Beach

Even though we stayed up late to watch the Ducks play and win, we got up a few mornings to watch the sunrises.                                                                                                                                                                                              

It is so beautiful here. The Padre Island Seashore is the longest undeveloped stretch of barrier island in the world. Birders would love it as there are so many types of birds here. It is also the only place in Texas where all 5 types of sea turtles are found. They are very protective  of the nesting sea turtles and during the nesting season, warnings to be careful if nests are sighted. they also ask the nests to be reported to the rangers.

As we still are having sunny and warm days we went to Mustand Island to do some kayaking. We went there last year and liked it. We probably should have looked at the tide charts as it was low tide when we were there and so we couldn't go through some of the inner trails. We paddled out to the Corpus Christi Bay. We had quite a workout coming back as we were going against the wind. However, we still enjoyed the paddle. This is a big fishing area and the only people we saw were  fishing, no one but us actuallly out paddling .
