The Wild Women of the Refuge...

At nine this morning, we began to gather to go on an adventure to check off one of the items on my Bucket List. The seven of us piled into two cars and headed for South Padre Island. We had reservations for a horseback riding excursion on the beach of the Gulf of Mexico. The wind was blowing, but the temps were in the sixties and we slowly headed out. I'm sure glad I wore my windbreaker!

The building in the far back is called the Leaning Tower of the Island. It seems after quite a few floors were erected, the building began to lean since the footers weren't put down to bedrock. Construction had to be halted, and so it stands unfinished.

All of us had a fun time on our ride. What a great bunch of wild women we have volunteering ...Yee haw!

We were all pretty hungry after our ride, so we went to Marcello's in Port Isabel and most of us had a great shrimp and fish all-you-can-eat lunch. It was much better than the shrimp lunch that we had a while back in Brownsville.

How do you like that? No bird pictures for today.

Thanks for stopping by....talk to you later, Judy
