This past weekend the HaggisFam made our annual January trek down to the beach. For us it is a much needed time for relaxation and reconnection after all the hustle and bustle of the holidays. It all started when Dennis and I took our honeymoon to South Padre Island in January. It's a tradition that I hope will continue as the girls grow up and start their own lives.
This year Den had a very cute co-pilot
This is a view from the dunes of the Beachgate Condos that we stayed in this year
We spent pretty much all of Saturday on the beach
Then we headed back down to the water early on Sunday morning for some shell hunting and to watch the sunrise. It was a little cloudy, but we still had a pretty spectacular view
Shelby found a shell that was to her liking
It wouldn't be a trip to the beach without a little seagull chasing!
After some time on the beach, we took the backroads home and made a quick stop in Fulton where I found PELICANS!!! Which are, after all, my most favorite of sea birds. I don't see white pelicans very often, usually just brown pelicans, so this was a treat indeed
