The Chronicles of South Padre, Part 2

Our day began with shopping for body boards. We went to about five surf shops looking for hte best deal. Surf shops are fun for about ten minutes but they get old quick with their over priced gear and tacky souvenirs. At last we just bought some even though there's a good chance we over paid. Days later we went to Walmart on Port Isabel and saw body boards on the cheap.

Arrived at the beach. After a few shots of B teaching G the basics of body boarding, my camera batteries died! Luckily I had the foresight to pack extra, however they were in the condo.

We played and played and played. Then we went back to the room and napped and napped and napped. Upon waking I quickly discovered that I was sunburned! Oh no! B and the kids seemed to be sun kissed. How did I allow this to happen? I was so careful to apply sun block liberally and reapply after playing in the ocean. Later in the night B and G develop sunburns as well.

After enjoying (B's favorite) dinner of avocados and shrimp we watched the Spurs game then turned in.

Love the pictures of B & G. Love them.

You need a solar powered camera. Or better yet, a camera like those flashlights that yoau can shake to create a charge. Know what I mean? I can see you standing on the beach, shaking the heck out of your camera.
