Hurricane Harvey spared South Padre Island

We had booked a Labor Day weekend camping trip to SPI back in June. We nearly canceled due to the hurricane. Harvey spared SPI and the forecast turned positive. Gas shortages nearly caused a second problem, but our X5 uses diesel and that was easily sourced. It turned out to be a great weekend to be on the beach.

We spent two whole days just grilling bratwurst, playing in the water, listening to music, and enjoying the last of my epic Vermont beer haul (not hauling that much again).

Society and Solitude #7 was one of the best beers... it's all gone now.

This small shovel has been the best beach investment ever.

For the most part, we had the beach to ourselves. We shared it with the birds and the fishes (see the school of fish below?).
