We had heard many good things about the South Padre Island area in Texas so we booked one of our member campgrounds in Harlingen for a few weeks. What great weather they have there! While everyone else was cold we had nights in the upper 60s and daytime highs in the 80s. Yes, there is a pretty constant gulf breeze but it's worth it for those temps! And an added bonus was we pulled in next to friends, Tiffany and Wade, without even knowing/planning it. We love how that happens!
South Padre Island is a great place to enjoy the beach with your vehicle right next to you. Moxie loved running around in the dunes and really got excited after she discovered digging for sand crabs could be so entertaining. Town was also known for it's many elaborate sand castles. I cannot imagine the amount of time it takes to build one of these!

Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge was about an hour's drive for a great place to bike ride and enjoy the birds (unfortunately I just realized I have no pictures of all the birds we saw!).

Our Texas Rebel friend, Cathy Phillips, came down for New Year's Eve. We ended up on South Padre Island for the evening and then in Mexico the next day. Thanks for the visit!
Next stop - Tucson, AZ!
Til next time...Happy Trails!
