South Padre Island

On Monday, we took a "quick" drive down to Corpus Christi and Padre Island.  After a nice breakfast at Cracker Barrel, we headed out to Mustang Island State Park.  It was a pretty windy day but we had a great time on the beach.

It was off to the public beach but by then, everyone was exhausted. 

We did have time to stop by a fun gift shop with a HUGE shark entrance

After lunch, it was a quick ferry trip that made all of us Washington natives laugh.  The trip took a total of about 5 minutes.  This view was sitting in the launch dock looking at the landing dock.  Not quite the 45-minute Bremerton ferry but an experience none the less.
