The waters are calm on South Padre Island and folks are enjoying soaking up the sun Thursday on South Padre Island. This group of friends are from Brownsville are enjoying the day at the beach.
"We are having a good time with our friends its our day off so decided to come out to the beach, it's a good time, relaxing time it's fun."
Like many we talked to on the beach they say they are not worried about the tropical strom don that's currently in the Gulf making it's way closer to the coast.
"I am not worried at all actually haven't even thought about it, look at the beach its perfect right now, it's the best day out here."
