A nice place down near Mexico.
Here's the first set of photos from our
recent trip to the Gulf Coast of Texas.
Seagulls, Waves, and Seaweed
My Favorite Time
I sunburn too easily, so early evening is when
the beach starts being fun for me. The light was
great for the seagulls, then it's time to work
with longer exposures as darkness creeps in.
Moon Over The Gulf
The dunes march across the narrow island, only to
disappear into the waters of the Laguna Madre.
It's difficult for life to cling to the moving sand hills,
like these flowering railroad ivy that seem to surf across
When the sand threatens to cover P100, the only road
north out of town, there's earthmoving equipment ready
to clear the lanes.
After only a few more miles, there's no way to stay ahead of
the game and no more civilization, so why bother?
By noon the fishing boats are done for the day.
These were docked at Port Isabel, on the mainland
just across the bridge from South Padre Island.
People work over here, and play over there.
Here are a pair I found on South Padre, at
the horse rental corrals.
