|South Padre Island, TX
February 20 - 22, 2015
|Dan and Rose have a sweet little place in Port
Isabel Texas, which is just on the mainland from South Padre Island.
They invited us down (or did we invite ourselves?!) for a fun weekend in
late February. The weather was chilly at times, but it was cold and

We drove past

| Rose took this nice shot of a Pelican
||Dan & Rose's friends Jerry & Mary took this great shot, which I've
Rose also captured these beautiful shots of the sunrise a few days before we arrived. She's got a gift for this photography stuff!
|On a boat ride to see dolphins, we passed this shrimp boat doing its thing||We saw several dolphins really close up, it was a neat experience.|
|There are two in this picture, but it is kind of hard to see.|
|I had a knack for taking the picture as they were going down - I'm too slow!||We scared off a huge group of Cormorants that had been sitting on the water|

|I wanted to walk on the beach, so we headed over to the island||Ahh - I love the feeling of walking barefoot on the beach|
Sand and gulls and waves - I love it
|Eric saw a girl walking on her hands on the beach, so of course
he had to do it.
|Rose took these pictures for us|
|Sunrise on our last morning||A look at the wonderful front porch|
|This is a view of the house with Eric & Dan on the side porch. A great spot!|
