Where I stayed
Isla Blanca Park

Flag of United States  , Texas
Sunday, January 9, 2011

Sunday afternoon we stopped at a Texas visitors center and got information about Isla Blanca State Park located on South Padre Island.  We called ahead and make a reservation for 3 days and pulled into the park shortly before sundown.  The temperature was around 80 degrees F and the wind was calm with clear blue skies.  Things were looking up!  Late Sunday evening, the winds picked up, the clouds blew in and the temperatures dropped.  The weather remained nasty for the rest of our time in South Padre Island.  We extended our stay 3 days mostly because we didn't want to try moving the trailer in the high winds.  Compared to most of the country, our weather hasn't been terrible, but it isn't what we are looking for.  Saturday we departed South Padre Island heading to Corpus Christi and North Padre Island.  The weather has improved, but the weather forecasters are expecting yet another front to be coming in.
