It was cold and really windy today so there weren't as many kites as last year. We'll go again tomorrow. Galen, Donna and I took turns holding the cool ring kite. The owner and designer/maker of the kite was happy to have folks like us come along so he got a break. Hanging onto it was work!

We walked over to watch a large ship coming through the channel and got a couple of sunset photos at the same time. The sunset/pelican photo was intensified in Photoshop so it wasn't so blah and boring. :-) The pirate ship is a local tourist thing.

Some of our Mountain View friends came over for a jam session and food. We started the day at Manuel's in Port Isabel. Note the size of that breakfast taco!
Jam session at Long Island Village.
Lunch at Blackbeards.

I took these three photos on the beach this morning. The starfish, like so many have lately, washed up on the beach. I've never seen the sanderlings bunched up like this before but I've never been here when it has been so cold before either. Usually the jetty is full of people and pelicans, but no pelicans today and only a few hardy souls out there today. High temp was only in the 40s, but it was less windy.

Although this restaurant is right outside of our RV park, we never made it there last year so we went early this year before the rest of the snowbirds get down here and it gets really crowded.
The grilled shrimp was yummy!
This is a shot I took on the way to South Padre Island, which I altered in Photoshop. I am giving Project 365 a try this year. The project involves taking a photo a day for 365 days. Getting ready to roll, sitting in a truck for five hours, and getting settled in didn't leave me a lot of time or energy for photography.
