Padre Island

Sunrise at Padre

On Wednesday, I walked the kids part way to school, kissed them goodbye, went back to Erin’s and threw a few final things in our luggage.  Then we were off to Padre Island to visit Anne and Clark.

Their condo took our breath away.  When you walk in the door, the first thing you see is the Gulf…ceiling to floor windows that look out on the most stunning view you can imagine.  Good Lord, is it gorgeous here.

And peaceful.  And slow moving.  We eat.  We sleep.  We read.  We walk the beach.  We drink cocktails out on the deck.  We soak in the hot tub and pool.  There is NOTHING not to like here.  And aside from emptying the dishwasher a couple times, I have done absolutely nothing.

Anne and Clark are such gracious hosts…and how nice to be WITH them instead of just using their digs.

We’re leaving tomorrow evening…heading to Houston for my checkup (fingers crossed) and then home on Tuesday night.  It’s been wonderful but it will be great to be home!
