We did go down to the jetty to see what birds could be seen, but the wind was blowing so hard you could not get out of your car without being sandblasted.
There were several ships by the jetty, as the waves hit, the water would fly over the deck.
There were hundreds of gulls sitting by the jetty, just hunkered down out of the wind. Something made them take off which made a pretty cool picture.
The winds did die down in the afternoon. By 4:00, there was a breeze, but nothing like it had been earlier. The sun even made some appearances. We left on the Island Queen to see what was around.
The boat pulled up pretty close to the white pelicans and we could observe some of their antics.
There was also this neat lighthouse owned by the Butt (H.E.B.) family who still keeps a full time lighthouse keeper there.
So, even though the weather didn't cooperate, we were still able to enjoy our day.
