A Day At South Padre Island

South Padre Island is located south of Mission, and McAllen.  We took the 1 1/2 hr drive there today.  Here are some snapshots of our day at the beach.

Over the causeway we go

First we had lunch at Clayton's.  They allow our furry pets....




After lunch we drove on the beach


I'm gonna catch that Frisbee!!!!
He had so much fun
A great day at the beach

On Our Way To Texas

Going over Causeways in LA
Beautiful view coming down 
Had to take this one.  I can feel the air here in Beaumont.  It is drier.  I like it...
But before we arrived at our Campground...we just had to go over one more bridge.....



Last Time I Saw Beaumont TX

We traveled to Beaumont in January, 2014.  A few stops we made there were Johnny's Italian Restaurant.  Another was Pappadeau's Restaurant.  We also went to Chabaa Thai Bistro, my Pinterest board [Jaunts of an RV Adventurer] has pins from all 3 restaurants.
We are staying in the same Campground 2 years later, the post from '14 is here.
I re-read another post from our stay back then, and I chuckled.  Easy for me to laugh now....I wasn't laughing then...Here's an excerpt from that stay:

I guess my sad story then goes on to say, both levelers would not come down. So we weren't able to extend the interior of the coach. 
If you want to turn around, go all the way down to the end...
...Then it was an ice storm...and colder...so we were stuck in the middle...with eachother... 

The funnier thing is, THEY GAVE US THE SAME MUDDY LOT THIS TIME TOO.
