A Beach Bum Wannabee — That's Me!

Padre Island is a most unusual beach. At least it was for me. I was there in October, and I was the ONLY one on the beach. I guess everyone went home, back to work or back to school. Obviously, this was good for me!


The long stretch of the Padre Island National Seashore is also unusual in that folks can drive their vehicles right down onto the beach. I'm not sure that I like that idea. I think I'd prefer that it stayed wild & uninhabited (at least by motorized vehicles anyway). And I couldn't do it myself because you really need a 4WD. Being so far from civilization, I didn't think it would be a good idea to bury my rental car in sand!!


Since I won't really get a beach vacation this summer, I am reliving the beach memories. I think everyone may have noticed a large amount of sea-themed images in my Photostream lately. Now you know why! ---> ◔◡◔

I'm so sorry I haven't been by everyone's Photostreams much lately ... pining for the sea, taking a Staycation Break (which just can't compare to the beach) ... working on my portfolio & revamping my resume. I will be catching up tonight & tomorrow my wonderful Flickr Peeps!.
