We watch the weather daily, and listen to the experts and head to South Padre Island on what might be a good day. We wait with the many bird watchers and photographers and anticipate the treasures that may appear. Tomorrow is another birding day ...yippee!
Beach Clean-up We went to,the Turtle Inc presentation the other day and heard about a volunteer chance to help clean the beach. We joined into the activity and had a good experience. Each time I picked up something, I rejoiced for the turtle trying to build her nest in the area, and the little babies that would emerge in about two months.
