We awoke this morning to a noisy Grackle outside our trailer and 14 C. inside out trailer. It is 7am, so at 9am I will be the first one in line at the KOA office when it opens and get this heating issue looked after.
The KOA sent a guy over to check out our heating issue and it was a simple fix, just add propane to the empty propane tank and voila, instant heat. I had a few more questions about the unit and then Karen and I went for breakfast at Pier 19.
After breakfast we walked out to the end of the pier. There is a bar right at the end of the pier.
Took some photos of the skyline.
After breakfast we drove back over the causeway to Port Isabel where there is a large Wal-Mart and we bought provisions that we will need for our stay.
It is a nice sunny day, blue sky overhead and 24 degrees Celsius. On our way back to the Island we got another shot of the Welcome to South Padre Island sign.
We unloaded and stored all of our provisions and relaxed for the rest of the afternoon. Around 3pm I lit and cleaned the BBQ so that it would be nice and clean for cooking our dinner on this evening. We will have BBQ`d hamburgers with potatoes and onions wrapped in foil for dinner.
While I was BBQ`ing the dinner the sun was setting so we walked over to the sunset deck and snapped these photos.
The hamburgers were delicious, as were the potatoes and onions. Considering that I have not BBQ`d for about 15 years, I am very pleased with the results. It has not inspired me to buy a BBQ for the house, but I am planning on BBQ`ing while we are here on SPI.
