I can hardly believe that it was amost a year ago that I was packing to go to Houston and the Quilt show! What a great place it is and a great place to tour around. We drove from Houston down to Brownsville and then back up along the gulf to Galveston.

Another spot we enjoyed was South Padre Island. It was very windy while we were there and we went beachcombing and found some interesting shells. The sunsets were beautiful there. As you drive over the bridge/causeway they have signs warning you about low flying pelicans!

I loved how warm it was and the blue skies. We did encounter a few thunder-storms along the way, but luckily they didn't last long. I think it would be very easy to become a winter Texan. The folks we met along the way were great.

I found some great antique shops when we were down in Victoria. The oldest Deli in Texas is located there called Fossati's, great sandwiches and service.

This guy was sitting on the edge of the dock as we took the ferry over to Port Bolivar. We saw lots of birds all along the Gulf of New Mexico.
