I will miss the quiet of the refuge and I will miss seeing the animals roaming around in their natural habitat. On the other hand, it is great to be back in civilization, back to 5 bars on my cell phone and a fast enough internet connection to post photos to my blog. The refuge is not very far from the island but it feels like it is in the middle of nowhere.
Technology or Nature - I guess I will move back and forth between these.
On Monday morning I moved over to South Padre. I am on a great corner site and everything I need is within walking or biking distance. There is a free bus on the Island and the bus also goes across the bridge to Port Isabel.
It is a short walk from my site to the beach or to the Laguna Madre. I am looking forward to spending many hours riding my bike and walking along the beach.
I will not be working during the month of April, but I will be volunteering for Sea Turtle, Inc., helping with sea turtle beach patrols. We will be looking for the nesting Kemp's Ridley turtles so that the nests can be protected.

Now I am only a few minutes from my daughters house. Monday was moving day for her, too. Diane and Karl are moving into a beautiful, new, 2 bedroom condo and she is happy to start setting up the baby's room.
