Vacation in South Padre Island

This summer, like we do every summer, we headed down south to South Padre Island for a much needed break from real life! We love our little condo on the Island. It's our home away from home. As soon as we open the door of our car and breathe in that wonderfully salty, moist air of the coast all of our stress just melts away.

In South Padre we hone the fine skill of doing absolutely nothing. Well, that's not exactly accurate. We spend a day fishing. The next day, we just play on the beach. We play on the beach every day. It's part of our 'rigorous' daily schedule. After we play on the beach, we play in the pool, and 'decompress' with a soak in the jacuzzi. Yes. Life is so hard at the coast! There are more photos of our little piece of paradise at our website:

Summer is not summer without fireworks. So we returned home to SA for a beautiful 4th of July concert with the San Antonio Symphony. Jose played in the First Violin section. This was a record-breaking performance. Temperature onstage was a balmy 102˚F.
