South Padre Island
Picture a small strip of God's earth where you can watch the sun rise over the waters of the Gulf of Mexico, play in the sand all day and then watch the sun set over the beautiful calm water of the Laguna Madre Bay.
Picture a place where the warmth of the sun, the tang of salty air, the squawk of sea gulls, the quiet stillness of herons, and the antics of pelicans all blend together above the waters that are home to dolphins and critters of all descriptions.
Picture towns where Texas friendliness blends the cultures of the Rio Grande Valley and welcomes residents, Winter Texans and visitors.
Picture palm trees and flowers that bloom abundantly to provide beauty and restoration to people, nectar to birds and bees and a resting place to birds of many different feathers.
Picture a land on the migratory flyway where birds stop to eat, drink and rest before continuing on their biannual journey.
