Padre to Diamonds

Man I am BEHIND on Trip Reports and those that know me, KNOW I am always harassing peeps to post MORE of theirs...so as NOT to be so hypocritical...here is our latest trip (16 days) from IA to Padre, then NE up the coast ending in Arkansas to dig/hunt for diamonds....the trip was EXCELLENT and a GREAT way to get AWAY from the masses. We spent a few nights in such isolation on Padre, that we truly felt we were the only ones left...the weather was a bit overcast most of the days out, but it was FEET of snow and below zero wind chills here so it was truly appreciated! The birding was phenomenal (if you are into that kinda thing), we are not birders, but do appreciate nature in any way! Shelling was fair, only one night of skeeter he!! but that is another story all together! Used 4x4 along the beach but never felt in trouble...Galvaston was our last stop on the coast...SHRIMP heaven!!!...stayed at the State Park, drove into town and only spent one night out of four (in Galveston)by a hotel acting like we were guests there...then headed N and ended at Crater of the Diamond State PK in Arkansas...a fun time, no diamonds, but a truly excellent State Park...Great spots with hookups and hot showers! Then back home!

Your Pics driving on the beach in padre bring back a lot of valued memories - we always enjoyed our time there best when weather was overcast and misty...just as you had.
Too bad about the Diamonds - maybe next time.
