Notes

The Bird Island Recreation Area is a great place to relax and catch a sunset over the Laguna Madre. While driving the park entrance road one day I noticed a large dune field in the distance. I wondered how difficult it might be to reach the dunes and found out a few days later that a 20 minute slog through the bayside marsh from Bird Island did the trick. I made several trips across the marsh and found some great photo opportunities with the dunes in the foreground and the Laguna Madre in the background.

Description

Padre Island National Seashore is a gem along the Texas Gulf Coast. 63 miles of protected barrier island and the Laguna Madre are highlights of this park.
