VLOMO2012 - Day 13 - Fresh Water is Scarce

It's easy to forget how scarce *fresh* water is here, but Padre is a barrier island and so there is nothing but salt water in the ocean, lagoon and in the coastal wetlands. The lagoon is said to be the 3rd highest saline content in the world for an open body of water (avg depth is only 3 feet).

So the local birds and cats know that they can often find water dripping from an RV hose.
