This year we decided to take it easy and hangout at a friends condo on North Padre Island. We had an amazing breakfast at the German Bakery then took a day trip to Port Aransas. As we arrived we were driving rather slow looking at the shops and thinking about what we wanted to do when Ryan had a fun idea. He asked if I would like to rent one of the brightly colored electric carts to cruise around the island on and of course I said yes!
We didn't care how "touristy" we looked and had a blast doing it... it's amazing how quickly the hours flew by! One of our stops was over at the University of Texas Marine Science building where we spotted this pod of dolphins swimming in the canal. There were SO many of them and it was such a pretty day, it's what living down here in Coastal Texas is all about!
For lunch we stopped at Moby Dick's and had some oysters and a monte cristo. The food was so yum and the place was decked out like a kitch tiki bar, win-win!
That evening we met up with some friends for dinner at the Black Sheep Bistro and ended the evening with a movie on the couch. It was so much fun to just spend time together and relax without a schedule, I highly recommend doing it!
