Two days at the beach

Coming from Corpus Christi, you'll be entering the Islands, first Padre Island and then take a left to Mustang Island - that's what we did

This is our little RV enjoying beach life

We were not the only one parked out here, everywhere were also big buses to see. On Mustang Island and at Port Aransas is actually allowed to park RV's directly on the beach, even over night, if you have a permit from the city

The sound of the rolling waves were very loud - but it was beautiful to listen to the melody of the waves!

There is also all kind of life going on on a beach: kids are playing and looking for shells

Seagulls are flying close by - La Paloma blanca

Why do Pelicans fly in groups?

A close up shot to five of the "group members"

In Port Aransas you can watch the big oil tankers going out to the deep sea

Or the deep sea fishing boats coming back home to the harbor

Port Aransas is getting ready for next week starting spring breakers - thousands of students will probably overflow the island and this pretty little town and at the beach

Beautiful beaches, vibrant views, relaxing retreats. Enjoy shimmering sunrises over the Texas Gulf Coast and serene evenings on the bay. Port Aransas is the premier vacation destination for beach, sun and family fun! Wiggle your toes in the sand! Reel in a redfish, captain a kayak, search for seashells, birdwatch, shop coastal stores and dine in island style restaurants. Our tranquil, tropical community boasts miles of natural beaches, gentle gulf breezes and just-right weather making our island a perfect, peaceful get away. Get close to the water and away from the crowds. Stay for a weekend or a week in choice accommodations -from quaint cottages to beachfront condos and RV parks to camp grounds. Visit Port Aransas on Mustang Island and enjoy the unspoiled beauty of Texas~Island Style!

GReat shots as usual, but the one with the lonely seagull and the one with the fishing boats are my favorites. Ah... longing for the sea...

What wonderful post and pictures! I just loved the one with the Pelicans - flying in groups like gees.

How great to see this beach and boats too and you know what; I've just posted about the same, but since from Norway - covered of snow :-)

Love the pelicans and the rolling waves. I have taken similar photos while here in Florida and will be posting them soon on my blog. I adore the birds down here.
