Padre Island Malaquite Beach Campground

We finally arrived at Padre Island! You can camp right on the beach here. Of course if your in a big rig like us, i wouldn't recommend it .. you may get stuck. We chose to pay $4 a night with my access pass and park on pavement.



Tent camping is another story, you don't have to worry about the getting stuck and can take advantage of it! This is a breath taking place.

As you can see weekends were taking advantage of the nice weather and enjoying the water. I stuck my feet in the water but that is all i wanted to get wet at this time.


Lexi enjoyed her walks on the beach, although she wouldn’t get her feet wet. When the waves got near her she darted to shore. It was funny to watch.

As you can see we were parked right behind the dunes and had a clear view of the Gulf. It was breath taking and i truly enjoyed it.


This is the view out my front door and this what i got to enjoy as i was eating lunch. This is the life!


We saw this poor jelly fish that was washed up on the shore.


We are really enjoying ourselves and we are having so much fun that we have decided to stay another night. We have done really good dry camping. We ran the generator around 7 pm while i fixed dinner and hubby got to watch a bit of tv.

Our new home hitting the road toward new adventures

What an exciting day! Today is the first day that we are starting our adventures with our new home. Before when we pulled our new home in it wasn’t really home yet. But today all of our belongings are inside and we are starting our adventures in our new home .. Yeppie!!
We got up and got the last minute things done and said our good byes. We finally got on the road around 9.15 am! We stopped about 20 miles after getting on the road at a Love’s truck stop so hubby could check tires and some other things. Since this is only the 2nd time we have pulled the trailer being caution is a good thing.

The wild flowers are still in bloom and so pretty i enjoyed getting to view them from a distance that they didn’t bother my allergies.

Then we finally got into what is known as Texas rolling hills. That was fun.

We finally knew we were getting close to Corpus Christi because we seen lots of oil refinery’s and you could smell the oil in the air.

The we started seeing the signs i was looking for .. yeppie!!
look what the temp was .. oh no and were staying without hookups and no generators after 10 pm ?
Actually once we arrived at the beach the temps dropped from 94 to 82! There was a nice breeze that cooled things off.

We arrived, hubby got us backed into our site in no time and we setup. It’s been a tiring day and now it’s time for relaxation!
