Donna hashad Padre Island on her mind since mid summer. We looked around Vacation Rent by Owner.com (www.VRBO.com) and decided to stay around North Padre Island for three+ weeks. We split the weeks up into three different apartments and are now working on places to see and things to do.
Here's a link to our (growing) road map. Will be spotting in potential destinations oer the next few weeks. Jan 27th is our launch date, with three road days planned to get there. At this point we're planning on takig the car and leaving the bike home. Potential solo bike trip in the works for spring.
Bird sanctuary photography (new 2X lens!)
Local road trips.
Signed up for TX newsletters and are hitting up the vacation bureaus for ideas. I like having lots of targets and then we have options based on weather conditions, energy levels and generally poking around.
Will keep you posted.
