SO CHAP AND I took a short trip down to the coast at Port Aransas–we haven’t been anywhere in a coon’s age. It was the perfect time to vamanos–early enough to not be hotter than the hammered hinges of hell, and we pretty much had the whole beach to ourselves . . .
We visited the Texas State Aquarium . . .
Did you know dolphins don’t sleep, they “snooze.” I always wondered how they rested when they have to surface to breathe . . . what you can’t see here is Kai the Dolphin was snoring, with cute little air bubbles fluttering up . . .
And we visiting the aircraft carrier USS Lexington–it was amazing to think of all the soldiers who spent so many months in such tiny, cramped quarters, heading for Japan in WWII . . .
and the condo was lovely . . . complete with pelicans
and a little chipmunk, who did come up for some snacks, but was too quick to get a picture . . .
and Chap made a friend . . .
or two . . .
and we sat at sunset and watch dolphins guide the ships through the channel . . .
It was a terrific, relaxing three days . . . hope your week went lovely, and we’ll see y’all on Monday!
