We took a day and traveled down to the coast from San Antonio, our home base for spring break this year. My wife had never been to the Gulf and wanted to see the warm waters and barrier islands. It was a good day to visit with highs in the 70's and a reasonable offshore breeze. We took a long walk on the beach and enjoyed a couple of the stops at the visitor center and Bird Island Basin. All in all it was a nice way to spend the day.
