We took a day trip to South Padre Island and took Lexie along for the ride. It was on this day I took the previous post's pictures of her in the back of the car.

Christmas carolers perform on the lighthouse steps.
|Lexie and me along the South Padre Beach. |
Lexie didn't want to look at the camera. She's shy.
|A giant pricklypear cactus.|
Some of them are ready to bloom. They have giant red buds.
|We didn't get to see this guy.|
|I had been looking forward to taking Lexie for a walk in the National Park. |
Imagine my change of heart when I saw this sign.

The Honey Mesquite Trees seem to be everywhere.
On the way from Harlingen to South Padre Island, we drove through San Benito, Texas, birthplace, home and burial place of the Hispanic singer, Freddy Fender.
