Day Two: Christmas on the Island

Merry Christmas to my friends that celebrate! We landed in Harlingen Texas late on the evening of Christmas Eve and seamlessly made our way to South Padre Island and settled into our Airbnb. The girls satisfied my need to take a photo next to the city sign.

Christmas day we slept in a bit and made our way to the beach, which isn't more than a two block walk. The weather here is beautiful. It was sunny and warm. It is always a transition when you leave frigid temperatures to figure out what to wear. It is almost as if you don't trust the thermometer but instead need to just test the air. We walked back to the condo and sat by the pool for a bit.

We showered and made our way to Isla Grand Beach Resort for their Christmas Buffet. It was a beautiful view overlooking the pool and beach, the food was great, and the company was perfect.

After dinner we walked through the "World's Largest Sand Castle" display. These things are just amazing to me. Snow sculptures are the same, albeit much colder upon viewing. We returned to our condo where we all took naps and despite our goal of walking the beach or going out for some southern dancing our butts never left the sofa. The night ended as it should have with my two favorite people.
