South Padre Sunrise

We spent the first two nights of our Texas vacation in a hotel on South Padre Island. Normally I do not worry too much about the hotels that we stay in when we travel other then they are clean. Since we usually do not spend much time at the motel we usually go with something that is not very expensive. Staying in a place like South Padre is an exception however, even though our hotel was still very affordable. I like to stay in places like South Padre when possible because I am a morning person, and as such I am usually up well before Michelle. In most places it is tough for me to find things to occupy myself that wont wake up Michelle, I usually try and let her sleep until about 7:00am, but it places like South Padre it is not a problem. Each morning I woke and headed down to the beach, camera in hand, to watch the sun rise over the gulf. As you can see the sunrises were spectacular.
