Mustang Island | {The Serenity Project}

Even though I have long considered myself more of a mountain person, there is something about the beach that brings a sense of calm to us all. My family and I aren’t lay-out-and-get-a- tan type people; we are more the SPF 50-and-wide-brimmed-hat types. But you can’t beat a nice morning walking on the beach.March 16, 2018-ECC_1052EileenCritchley1

Over Spring Break, we visited Mustang Island State Park in South Texas for a morning on the beach. It was so beautiful there- overcast but warm, no crowds, and plenty of beach treasures to be found. My daughter had a great time running along the beach and doing cartwheels.March 16, 2018-ECC_1009-EditEileenCritchley1March 16, 2018-ECC_1036EileenCritchley1

We even found several intact sand dollars, which is something I don’t think I have ever found on the beach (and I grew up in Florida!).

We enjoyed watching all the birds too.

It was such a beautiful morning, and a perfect way to wrap up our Spring Break. I’m so glad we took a little trip down there!


The Serenity Project is a collaborative photography project. The women who post to this project aim to bring a sense of calm serenity to their images. Please continue the circle to Wendy May, Scottish photographer to see where she found a sense of peace this month.

  1. I love your beach photos Eileen. So peaceful and serene. You are right – there is something calming about the beach and you brought out this calm atmosphere in each of your images. I want to go to the beach now!

  2. Eileen! I feel like I’m right there enjoying the beach with you! What lovely images, and how wonderful to have the beach mostly to yourselves. It appears the gulls cooperated well with you too! Fantastic!

  3. Such gorgeous images of the beach. I am glad that you were able to go down there during Spring break and take in new sites and sounds. Looks like your little girl had a great time too.
