Padre Island National Seashore
Add Padre Island National Seashore to your bucket list. It’s mile after mile of sand-duned ocean shoreline.
Along with two campground friends, we Jeeped to Milepost 30 (of 60!) on the beach. Because you can only drive slowly on the beach, it took us 2 hours to get from Port Aransas (which is on Mustang Island) to Milepost 30 on South Padre Island.
But what a drive! At times it was like being in a post apocalyptic movie like the Walking Dead (actually Fear the Walking Dead) TV show sans zombies . . . nobody around except the birds.
Here’s a list of the birds that visit the area (PDF).
It was a big day for Flirt too. It was the first time we let her go without a leash. She wagged her tail continuously.

What a beautiful wilderness. Miles of sand, water and birds. Are those birds some kind of dark gull? I saw Flirt chasing some of them. Keep on keeping on. Kath
I added a list of the birds that visit the area.
Gulls with a black head are Laughing Gulls. The larger black birds are cormorants. Of course the brown pelicans are spectacular!
