After we left Boerne we headed to Port Aransas. We stayed at Pioneer RV Park which is right near the beach on the Gulf of Mexico. You can’t see the Gulf, because of the large sand dunes between the RV park and the Gulf. There is a constant breeze from the Gulf that covers the car and motorhome with a salt spray. We are going to have to give it a cleaning when we get back to Lake Charles.
We drove into Port Aransas and dined at Virginia’s by the Bay. We weren’t impressed with the food there and it was a little expensive for what food you received. While we were sitting there we saw a few things out on the water.
They have a new tour on the water that it looks like a pirate ship.
If you look close at the bottom of the main mast you can see that they have a stowaway tied to the mast. That is what one of the waitresses told us they do to simulate a real pirate ship.
We saw several pelicans flying around the docks.
I got a picture of one that had just dove into the water to catch a fish.
The Coast Guard has a station on Port Aransas and we saw one of their boats coming into the dock.
There is a boardwalk that leads to beach, so Sue took a walk (too far for me to walk) and she got a few photos of all the seaweed or such on the beach.
You can’t even see any sand, just the seaweed in different stages of decay. Didn’t smell too good either!
You can see ships going out to the gulf from behind the sand dunes.
Saturday we went and met Richard and Nancy to see the Corpus Christi Hooks baseball team play. They are the Double A team for the Houston Astros.
They play at Whataburger Field.
Their mascot. Sorry for the blur.
We left Port Aransas and drove to Houston. We wanted to visit with my cousins and Aunt and Uncle while we were in the area. We then left Houston on Monday and drove back to Lake Charles. We will be here for a about 3 weeks and then head to a rally at Lake Somerville, Texas.
Until next time!
