Texas Transition


From the upper Laguna Madre to the lower Laguna Madre.
From a postage stamp, sliver of land to the plushy spring break destination of South Padre Island.


From a one-room cabin to a three-bedroom hotel suite at The Inn at South Padre.
From a cold-water, gravity feed, cistern shower to a 102˚ jacuzzi hot tub.
From crap 3G to WiFi and 100 channels on the TV.
From a 23-mile boat trip for gasoline to walking-distance bar-hopping along the SPI strip.
From meals on a tortilla to dining on linen at Marcello's and the Sea Ranch.
From PBR and Lonestar in cans to margaritas and turbo piƱa coladas in fru-fru stemware.


From chasing Texas redfish with friends to chasing Texas redfish with friends.
The important things didn't change.

I'm guessing this is your way of saying you had a great time? Wish we could have all been there.

Wow...from one end of the spectrum to the other and enjoying it all! Good for you.

That margarita on the rocks looks awfully inviting

You bet, Howard. A great time. I wish the same.

Thanks Emily. Certainly was a change.

You know it, Mat. But it was the turbo pina colada that tickled my fancy.
