From Goose Island I headed south to Padre Island National Seashore. We took a boat to get there:
and we had a great spot just 100 yards or so from the water, up across the dunes, so I could hear the surf while I slept.
Unfortunately had to get a move-on the next morning to find a public library (for wifi) to get some schoolwork turned in; but it was a lovely short stay. I had my first experience with “the community,” several ladies with dogs stopping by to ask about my lifestyle, whether permanent and for how long, and talk about Hops’s behavior (none of us is done growing yet, though, are we, alas).
