We spent 3 nights in Aransas Pass. We didn't actually stay on the island but this was kind of nice. We were just a few minutes from the Ferry and could hop on pretty quickly. There were times when the Ferry line was long but nothing more than thirty minutes.
We got there Monday afternoon and spent the first night driving around, eating, and going to the beach. TJ was beyond excited and we couldn't wait any longer. Someone by the name of Nana told TJ about the beach months ago so this was basically torture waiting until vacation to see the beach.
The second day we of course went to the beach. But this time we went in the morning. Had lunch at the beach, then went back to the hotel for naps. After naps we did a little shopping then went to dinner.
That night we went on a sunset dolphin watch. It was a long ride and a lot of fun.
Then on the last full day the guys went on a 5 hour fishing trip so the ladies and kids went to a late breakfast, swimming, and naps before they got back. That evening we went to the beach one last time after going to a fancy dinner.
