Woke up around 8:30am this morning, there isn’t much chance to sleep any later because of the noisy Grackles that sit in the palm trees around our Airstream trailer.
We ate breakfast then hung around our trailer for the morning. After lunch we decided to leave the KOA campground and drive around the Island for a bit. We had to pick up some groceries, but we also went in search of a few Sand Sculptures that are scattered throughout the Island. The best known one is the one at the Visitor Center.
There is another one at the Police Station. This is a flying turtle.
There is one at a private residence. It is titled “Un-Litter”.
Another one at a private residence is titled “The Wizards Roost”
There is one that we were not able to find, it is a Pelican. We will keep looking for it over the next few days and hopefully find it.
Back at the KOA Campground on South Padre Island I lit the BBQ and and cooked dinner, then we walked over to the sunset deck to watch the setting sun. We sure have been lucky this year at seeing the sunsets. On our previous visit to the Island 3 years ago, it would always be cloudy in the late afternoon and the clouds would of course completely block the sunset.
