Final Post: South Padre Island

This will be my final post of the trip. During lunch today we evaluated the week. We agreed traveling the week of Christmas is nice. Compared to an all-inclusive in Mexico the girls agreed this was better because we are able to keep busy doing things. They aren't into the beach-chair-reading scene as much as I am, and I get that.

Yesterday Paradis and I visited Sea Turtle, Inc. It is a really nice rescue center. Afterwards the three of us walked the beach, hung out at the pool and watched the sunset.

Today the weather wasn't great. It was warm but cloudy and foggy. We had lunch at the Painted Marlin so Paradis could get her seafood fix. After that we hung out at the apartment and did our thing. I washed all the sheets and towels in our Airbnb. That is part of my thing.

Ceviche and a Bloody

Our Airbnb host has been fabulous! We arrived on Christmas Eve at 9pm, after all the grocery stores were closed, so our host picked up an order for us from Walmart. That was fabulous since all the grocery stores were closed the following day as well. Because our flight wasn't until 9pm today she let us stay in the apartment until as late as we wanted. I would definitely recommend this place. It was a quick walk to the beach and had plenty of space. 

Our last meal was well planned out, as we wanted to experience a Whataburger. 

Overall, this was a great week. I love hanging out with my girls. I made a couple connections on the island regarding some rentals, and even went and looked at a one-bedroom on the water. I could see myself coming down here for a few weeks over the winter. It is very quiet but the prices are pretty reasonable. We shall see.

Happy travels my friends and Happy New Year!
