Back Home

Jon and I had a great time in South Padre!

As soon as we arrived, we feel in love with the bed and breakfast. It was 12 rooms surrounding a beautiful court yard. 

This was the entrance to our room. We were on the corner, so we had our own little private sitting area outside. It was nice to enjoy a cup of coffee in the comfortable adirondack chairs. IMG_1352

This was the view from the front door to our room. How amazing is that stain glass window?!?


Apparently I didn’t get pictures of the rest of the room, but, to the left was a sitting area/dressing area that lead to a large bathroom.

Basically our days in South Padre consisted of lounging at the pool. Picture me on the pink raft, book in hand.


And hanging out at the beach.

We were able to bike to just about every restaurant we tried, which was great! On Thursday we found the perfect lunch spot. They had a variety of sandwiches loaded with veggies and delicious smoothies.

On Thursday and Friday, Jon talked me into going for a run on the beach. It was a challenge but I was proud of myself for going.  Jon decided to capture me post run…


I was able to take a few pictures with my nice camera. I think some of them came out pretty nice.

We had a great time, but we are glad to be home. Everything is unpacked and Hiro is back home with us (he spent the time with his bff, Woodrow).

Jon has to work tomorrow and I have a long list of to-dos…including lots of sandy laundry and grocery shopping. Tonight we are enjoying pizza and a movie at home, the perfect ending to a great vacation.
