Movin’ on down to the west side

How narrow is South Padre Island, you wonder?

Lagoon side thataway.

In one swift morning my walk carried me from the Gulf of Mexico to the east to the lagoon to the west, all taking the block on which our rental house sat.

Easy to find.

It took me, maybe, five minutes to get from one body of water to another, and that was with a pause for traffic to clear at the very busy boulevard.

No beach here.

I discovered this side of the island was bordered not with a beach but with docks.


Residents did what they could.

Nicely done.

The lagoon-side houses had charm, yes.

Across two roads lies our house.

The view of the sun amazed from this side of the island, too.
