Tropical Storm Don

Tropical Storm Don- Padre Island- Near Packery Channel
There was lots of activity on the beach.  Tropical activity always draws lots of people to come and ‘check it out’ on the beach, but regardless of the low severity of this particular storm- the water was literally like a washing machine out there.  I was amazed that some parents were letting little (very little) kids swim unattended in the water.  Every year, we have people die from pushing just a little too far trying to view the storm.  Surfers out in the water were struggling to catch a decent wave.  It was just to choppy and everything was closing out.  I used to surf up until my illness prevented me from doing so, and I know the limits, as do most surfers.  I just wish others would have just a little more common sense. 
Okay, off my soap box… enjoy the pictures!  You’ll be able to see as the pictures go on, the amount of mist and salt that clouded the lens.  I actually use a relatively inexpensive camera, when it comes to photography.  
I am saving my pennies for a new camera- I’ve got my eye on Canon- (preferring a 7 d)

    I just discovered your lovely blog and have signed up as a follower. I've just put the finished touches on my new blog ‘Coastal Style’ It will have lots of inspiration on beach houses, resortwear, summer food, travel and anything ‘beachy’. I had a lot of fun putting it together so maybe you would like to check it out if you have a spare minute.

    Great Pictures! I just found this blog on your site from 2011. I remember that storm. It was crazy. My ground floor apartment came within 1 inch of being flooded. I lived on Boca Seiga Bay. The water was coming up from the Bay and the water in the street was coming up from the other side. It did flood the breezway and the front and back yard. I filmed the event, so now that I read this blog, it reminded me, so I am going to post that video.

    Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful pictures and reminding me of my video that I can share as well.

    Happy Shelling:
