Quoted From A Fellow Traveler:

Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile. Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance.

A Full Day Of Things To Do

Down the street from our campground here in Harlingen, is the Marine Military Academy.
One of the Memorial Plaques.
Another Memorial Plaque
Harlon Block is also buried here.
His Grave

I am in the picture to give you an idea of how big the monument is.
From the Military Academy we headed out for South Padre Island where they were having a Kite Festival. Along the way we past Bobz World and had to turn around so we could check it out.
It was pretty cool on the outside and they are still adding to the over sized sculptures.
Joyce at the main entrance.
This place is what I call a really big junk shop.
They do had all kinds of dorky hats.
Neat huh?
From Bobz, we continued to the Kit Festival this link will take you to the 2009 show. I never knew kites like they had there even existed.
Some more of the different kites.

From the Kite show we decided to get on the beach and do some beach running. The road started to get covered with sand from the cross wind.
We finally found a way to the beach from the road. There was beach as far as you could see. At times we were doing 45 MPH. Was a fun time!
Coming back from Padre Island there was a light house on this historic site.
This is a shot of the lighthouse as we came across the bridge.
