Ike's Aftermath

Port Aransas and Corpus Christi were spared the wrath of Ike. If you see the pictures of Galveston and Houston after the Hurricane you can only imagine how it could have changed the landscape on Mustang and Padre Islands.

I took some pictures today of some of the surge damage to the islands and was amazed at the loss of dunes. Sandy Feet posted some pictures of South Padre after Ike. This was a big storm.

Here are my pics
