Thanksgiving 2006 on Mustang Island.

Weather was fantastic for late November. Mustang Island is a barrier island off the South Coast of Texas. It is surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico and Corpus Christi Bay. Mustang Island State Park is 3954 acres with about 5 miles of beach on the Gulf of Mexico in Nueces County, south of Port Aransas, Texas. Just down the road from Corpus Christi.

The earliest known inhabitants of Mustang Island were Karankawa Indians, known for their fierceness and cannibalism. The island was first named "Wild Horse Island," then "Mustang," because of the wild horses, called "Mestenos," brought to the island by the Spaniards in the 1800s.
