North Padre Island National Seashore

We camped by the ocean in North Padre Island National Seashore, Texas. We enjoyed playing in the sand, cooking shrimp over a campfire and taking moonlight walks along the shore. As we walked along the shore in the darkness, we would walk through the drifted kelp and see the fluorescent chemicals shine under the pressure from our feet. By daylight SOME of us even enjoyed tossing food to the seagulls.
