B: Tara absolutely loves the beach. Her addiction to chasing tennis balls coupled with the soft, cool, sandy beachscape, makes this the ultimate playground for our little girl. The first road trip I shared with Tara was a stretch of beach just a few miles from the origin of these pictures. She was a three month old black ball of energy, digging in the sand and running in and out of the shallow water brought in by wave action. Not much has changed about this sweet girl except for her agility – she loves to show off her acrobatic finesse of chasing after and catching tennis balls whenever possible.
K: Brandon and I are the epitome of early risers. Our weekend at Port Aransas beach was no exception and we were on the beach before 8 AM. Unfortunately, the weather was not on our side during our stay, with perpetual gray skies and misty mornings. Nevertheless, we made the most of our time together and insisted on daily beach walks and trips to town.
B: Texas has some of the longest contiguous shorelines in the United States. Though these are not the fined-grained white sand beaches of Florida, or the coarse-grained black sand beaches of remote Kauai, these beaches are full of childhood memories. Spring Break at this stretch of beach front is quite a sight to behold with vacationeers from the South and Midwest literally covering every square inch of beach– and a wonderful experience to check off of your bucket list.
K: Our beach time was short lived and limited because of rain, but we are headed back right after my birthday! I’m already counting down the days and praying for a little sunshine this next trip! Be sure and stop by our blog later this week (Wednesday and Friday). We’ve got some great content for you as we gear up for Spring!
