Topsail is one of the best state parks in the country! Three miles of pristine beaches and enough hiking trails to keep you busy for weeks. The only negative of this park is that dogs are prohibited on the beach. Vegas really did not like the no dog rule but she found some other beaches that welcomed her.
Lonnie’s brother and sister-in-law (Dan and Barbara) who live in Arkansas would be visiting their son and daughter-in-law (Greg and Cathy) in Corpus. Great reason for a road trip, so off we went. We had dinner at Snoopy’s, a popular restaurant on intercostal canal, luckily they had a large roaring fire pit inside to warm everyone from the misty cold weather outside. The next day we were able to visit with Greg and Cathy whom we haven’t seen a several years and it was wonderful to spend time with family.
After the family visits we took off to Padre Island National Seashore, Malaquite beach. We were very fortunate to find a great camp site with an ocean view and a very short walk to the beach. Vegas truly enjoyed running in the sand and chasing the birds.
