A day at the beach

Went to the beach (Padre Island) today. Here are some photos.

One of my favorite spots to eat (Boat n Net). Don't be deceived by its exterior.



The Mada. Dead Seaweed everywhere!!!






...and the beach.

Man I've always wanted to hit up South Padre Island. They say its so much better than Galveston. Those pics are beautiful and the Mada is looking good! Maybe if gas drops to around $3.50 a gallon I'll make the trip.

Looks good! There is a favorite burger place around here with similar looks but the people (including myself) line up.

Yeah its pretty nice other than the dead seaweed. You literally have to take a shovel or rake to get that stuff out of the way to make the sand playable. I went again this past Saturday and the seaweed was worse and much drier. It felt like walking on a bunch of uncooked Ramon noodles...lol. Not that I have ever done that.

Some good MPG right there!!! Dont worry I got stuck once as well, when I first got the Mada. I forgot to turn off the VDC and right when it hit the sand it got stuck and some big o tired/lifted 4x4 bronco came and towed me out. At the last minute I realized about the VDC but it was too late he had me hooked up already. Some of these guys just drive up and down the beach looking for stuck vehicles and ask for a small donation. I gave him 5...lol, it was all I had unless he had a portable card swiper. He asked "Aren't those bad boys 4x4" and I replied "not this bad boy"

Guess what happened to me at the beach today ...



I was backing up from the spot I was in and gave it some gas to get over the part of sand that you see in the pic and there was a car coming up pretty fast so I stopped to avoid hitting him/her and the rest is history.

Oh man. Looks like a tow vehicle was needed to get you out.

Nah, my wifes cousins bf had a 4x4 and pulled me out. I had maybe 2-3 feet of deep sand to go before getting to the flat sand. So it took one quick tug to get me out on to flat sand...darn 2wd haha. But I still had a blast.
