The sun came out Sunday and so did the spring breakers on Padre Island.
So far, police say there hasn't been any major problems, but just in case they'll be keeping a watchful eye on the crowds throughout the rest of the week.
They came for the sand and the surf. Hundreds of families, college students, and out of town visitors here this week for spring break 2013.
"We saw it on Youtube," said Mohammed Aonasser, Forth Worth resident. "They say 'where are you going next spring break?' Yes, Corpus Christi!"
"Let the kids run around, wear themselves out, play in the sand, have fun for a while," Chris Harris said. "No rules, just enjoy being kids."
"The beach and the scenery is nice, weather is good. Good spot to come out to," Eloy Baeza, San Marcos resident said.
Just when spring breakers thought they would be stuck indoors, mother nature came to the rescue.
The clouds parted and the sun finally came out as the once baron beach now comes to life with college students from here at home and those from out of state.
It was here at JP Luby Beach where we met surfer Joey Kaseta. He is an engineering student at the University of Kentucky.
"I came down here for seven months, fell in love with the beach and come back down every chance I get," said Kaseta.
He loves it here so much, he's hoping to move back after he graduates.
In the meantime, police are patrolling, and preparing for what's to come this week.
They're keeping an eye out for DWI's and minors with alcohol.
So far, officers say the crowds have been calm, but know things are about to change as thousands set their sights on our area beaches for a spring break get away.
"Be calm. If it does get backed up out here be patient. We got a real good presents out here and if you need anything well be out here for you," said Captain Sanders of the Corpus Christi Police Department.
