A group of us decided to take a short vacation and stayed over night on South Padre Island. The hotel we stayed at was dog friendly so Zaph had a vacation as well and we all know he's the one who enjoyed the beach the most. We left Wednesday morning and stopped at a Wal-Mart in Port Isabella (on the mainland across from the island) and picked up fried chicken, etc. and had a picnic on the beach. The afternoon was spent lazing around for some and chasing a ball for others ... OK just Zaph. After happy hour at the hotel we headed out for a delisious dinner. Today we had more beach time followed by looking for birds .... noon's not a good time to go looking for birds.
Digging to China.
Wet, sandy and a ball in our mouth .... life doesn't get much better.
I'm ready .... throw the ball.
The view down the beach.
This great blue decided to go after a fish .... the splash at the left tip of the wing.
I think these guys might be a bit big for the heron.
