"There i was"

... Maybe, but my best guess was that it was a bunch of little bugs in the weed that glow when they get irritated. I kicked at the seaweed and sent the green glow through the air, toying with it. Was overly amused. The ocean, like space still blows my mind, the vast unknown. All the animals alienlike, scary. But, Being next to it, in it, also brings a feeling of freedom. That's why I'm here in corpus christ Texas on padre ...

Mustang Island - as FAR south as we can go!

... As everyone knows, we live in the Tampa area; therefore we are accustomed to look in a westerly direction over water to see the sunset and hurricanes approaching. Now that we find ourselves traveling and on the 'other side of the Gulf' we see the sun rising over the Gulf and having concerns of Tornado watches. Speaking of climatic conditions, we did "suffer" through a “near Tornado” while being trapped on this island, kinda scary when ya think about! We ...

... we were not guests and should not be walking on private property. There was no sign at the entrance of the boardwalk which identified it as private property. Anyway we made our way over to the main road and easier than the way he eventually told us.

Bob picked us up, we made a stop at Whataburger then showed Julian the shark mouth (at the entrance to shop) before we returned to the campground. Bob dropped us off at ...

... cake). So then it was time to eat again, but dinner tonight was SUBWAY sandwiches since we had a big lunch.

After dinner, we stuck around for a couple of hours for visiting. I played a couple of games of FARKLE and Bob visited with Larry Gordon.

Now it's time to relax and get ready for bed. Tomorrow is going to be a busy day starting with breakfast, then a membership meeting.

Rally Day #1

... By that time it was almost "Attitude Adjustment" time, so we packed up our dishes and over we went. The rally hall is basically out of our back door (if we had a back door).

We have a large group here this month and that includes 3 sets of visitors. Dinner was Turkey Tetrazzini. At least I could get mine without the cheese. After dinner some of the attendees ...

    It was heavenly


    We stayed there last summer for a week. It was heavenly. This was the most relaxing vacation I have ever been on. We stayed in a 2 bedroom and it was like being at home, only I did not have to do the cleaning. We got up eahc morning had breakfast put on our bathing suits and hung out at the beach and when we grew tired of that we hung out at the pool. The view from your balcony is awesome. Plan on visiting there again this year.

    Wonderful Place to Stay! Loved it!


    The Sandcastle is an excellent place to stay for an excellent price!

    You are right on the beach, the staff is super friendly and helpful, the entire property is clean, and you just feel like you have no worries while you are there. The first night we were there was the last night of Spring Break, so we did hear lots of college kids on the beach having a good time, but we were able to sleep through it. Also, the shower IS dark. The only light in the bathroom is over the mirror, which does not provide a lot of light in the shower area, but it's not that bad. The room was clean, and maid service replaced towels and sheets each day. The grounds were very clean, covered parking was available for free, and security guards watch the entrance to make sure only hotel guests are parking there. You are not far from town, and being by the beach is great! We started planning our next trip to POrt Aransas and the Sandcastle Condominiums before we had even checked out!

    We loved it there!

    Love the Sandcastle...


    Second time at the Sandcastle and I sooooooo highly recommend it...great...and I mean great rates....great room....clean.....homey....really comfortable...great view....walk to the beach... It's the only place I'll be long as it's standing...

    A grat place to stay !


    the effeciency rooms , especially the view from the balcony , was superb. located within short distance to anything in Port Aransas. the staff was very friendly and helpful with directions to all attractions around town and the surrounding area. just an all around wonderful vacation to get away from everyday life and watch the waves come in! can't wait to stay there again next summer.

    Nice Stay - Couch Worn - Drapes Hanging From Railing


    My husband and I stayed at the Sandcastle Condominiums for our anniversary (October 31 and November 1) (Room 436). It was a pleasant stay. Positives: Boardwalk to the beach, courteous staff in lobby area, clean room; ample space for an efficiency; very comfortable bedding and pillows; clean pool area.

    Negatives: Poor lighting in bathroom, basically showered in the dark; sofa couch worn where stuffing was actually showing through; television did not have a remote control - husband had to go to front desk and request a remote; was not able to hook up our portable dvd movie player to the television; portions of curtains were hanging from the support railing; bathroom showed signs of wear -peeling of wallpaper.

    On a scale a 1 to 10, I rate the Sandcastle a 8. Would stay here again.

    Sand castle is one of the best


    My first time at the sand castle it was the best place for my needs. I will definetly be returning to stay on my next visit. The effeciency was clean modern very nice and private. Employee's were very nice seemed to enjoy working environment. Friendly polite front desk service. Owners should be very proud.

    Great Place to just be


    We have been there 3 time now and it's always been great, clean, quiet, just wonderful. I will say however if you don't like the morning sun shining in, ask, for a room on the north side. If you like to see the ships comming in and out, get a room on the south side.

    Good Place To Stay


    Some of my family members stayed here during the last weekend in August 2003. Rooms were spacious and in good condition. Comfortable furniture.

    Large pool and two large hottubs. Short boardwalk to beach. Good location in town. Good sized rooms. Excellent views of beach and pool.

    Not as large as other newer condo properties so you are never far from your room no matter where you are on the property. End rooms have HUGE balconies.

    This will be our accommodations of choice on future trips.

    Family Reunion Spot!


    We have been staying in Port Arnasas for the past 20 years, and the Sandcastle has been our top pick for the past 7 years. We love this condo. Very nice, clean, and people are very friendly. Decorations are very tastful and cute! Infact, we have a room booked for next weekend.

    I can't wait!

    Wonderful fun in the sun


    The Sand Castle is always a great place to stay....freindly staff, clean rooms, and good family fun on the beach.
