South Padre Island, Isla Blanca Park

We’re back on “Island Time”.  After spending 3 nights at Tropic Winds RV Park in Harlingen, we’ve made the short drive to the gulf coast, crossed over the Queen Isabella Causeway and are parked at the Isla Blanca park for the next 2 weeks.  This is our 3rd visit to SPI, always in sites C321 & C363 that overlook the Brownsville Ship Channel and fishing area. We’ve arrived just ahead of the big crowds that are expected for Semana Santa or Holy Week ending on Easter Sunday.

As luck would have it, good  friends Wendy and Mark are also here on the island for one more night before beginning their trip back home to Winnipeg, Canada.  We join them at the KOA Kampground for a few beers and great conversation as well as an introduction to their “puppy” Roper – the newest addition to their family.  It’s been two years since we first met in Lajitas, TX and it’s great to catch up with them again.  Safe Travels Mark & Wendy!

We’ll lay low during the big Easter weekend, and then venture out as the crowds leave.  We want to get back to the Palm Street Pier Bar & Grill, the Padre Island Brewing Company and Isabel’s Café for some home cooked Mexican breakfast.  And, we’re always on the lookout for new, fun places.  More from SPI as our 2 weeks progress…

Thanks for the mention. It is so nice to become friends with fellow travellers and hear their travelling stories. I can’t believe it’s been 2 years since our last encounter.
Wishing both of you a Happy Easter and a safe trip back to Colorado. I always enjoy reading your blog.
Keep up the good work!
