Corpus Christi TX, 3 of 3

We were getting close to the last day of Corpus Christi so off we went for more exploring on Padre Island.  It was turning out to be a great day so we headed to Padre Island National Seashore.

These little white spots were from pocket gophers, they were everywhere

We saw many of these gorgeous white tail deer
They all looked very healthy with these cute little white tail with dark stripe down the middle

 Camping at the beach on the west side of the island aka Laguna Madre.

Still on the west side of the island, no wave action here.  There is a red tide alert all over Corpus Christi, but not on the west side of the island

However on the Gulf Side the Red Tide is very noticeable with dead fish everywhere.  These spots on the beach are dead Man Of War.  Dogs are not allowed on the beach during the red tide as it is very toxic to them and could kill them in a few days. 

The Gulf side of island

We ended our stay with a  Christmas dinner and  Gift exchange at the Bay Club on base.  This was put on by the campground, they supplied very good sliced turkey and ham and the rest of us supplied all the rest in potluck style, and was it good.

Well I am suddenly having trouble uploading pictures to Picasa so this is it for tonight.

Safe travels to all
