Anyone live on or near or been to Padre Island in Texas???
Its funny, I have been all over the country except for a select few states, ive been in texas but didn't really get a good taste of it ya know?
In my travels I always believed and was reassured the nicest people lived in Nebraska. Everyone says hello to everyone, everyone is everyones friend, whats yours is mine kind of attitude everywhere you go.
My dad just got back from a two week vacation in Texas he said two things that struck me...
#1) Oh God Matriarch, I used to think the nicest people lived in Nebraska, *shakes his head in shame* the nicest people are in Texas. If you thought Nebraskans were nice, wait'll you stay in Texas a while.
#2) You probably shouldn't go though, I know you and if you went to Padre Island you would never come back!
We have an emotional tie to Padre Island, I know its known for Spring Breakers but my dad has wanted to go there for a long time. My grandfather loved Padre Island and would camp on the beach for months at a time, basically just living out there until he decided to come back to Nebraska. He was always kind of a gypsy. A couple years ago he came back to Nebraska from Padre Island just long enough to say goodbye he passed away. Ever sense we all, especially my dad have wanted to see what it was about that place that had my grandfather so smitten.
So anyone who is personally familiar with it, I would like your opinion.
