I know this is blurry, I don't know why though. We'll try again but for now, I posted this little movie, at least you get to see the Zomeister. She goes to the beach every few days and she beginning to try to avoid the walk already. But we drag her along anyhow. Love, me

Finally we headed to our winter home on Mustang Island. We got set up but still have work to do. We took a walk to the gulf, Zoe too, and that is very pretty. There was a "red tide" (hotter than normal water) that killed a bunch a fish. Our section of beach has scattered corpses, but in the news there are sections where the fish are 2 feed deep. UGH
We are a little miffed with our site here though. The traffic sounds are louder than I thought they would be and we are on the fence backing Hwy 361. I thought "It's an Island, how heavy can traffic be?" Dah, blond thinking. The worst is the burrs in the grass. Zoe can barely walk without picking up these tiny burrs and we have to take them off her pads. The burrs stick to our shoes and we drag them into the trailer. I had to get on my hands and knees and pick them out of the carpet. We are going to rethink our plan. Some areas of the park are burr-free zones (we noticed on our walk) but I doubt if there are any available sites there. Our friends warned us we wouldn't like it here. We do like it here! I don't think they knew about the burrs though. They would have said something, for Zoe's sake.
I'll post photos on a seperate blog. It won't let me do it now. Enjoy. Diane and Tim
