The Beach Once More

Our last full day before heading to the Northland. On the way to Port A, we had lunch at The Big Fisherman. Talapia stuffed with crabmeat, served on a bed of rice with popcorn shrimp and broccoli, along with five deep fried shrimp. Mmmm! Cannot beat seafood on the Texas coast.

The ferry ride across to the island was accomplished without delay, and we did see dolphins cruising the channel.

It was very windy on the beach. The gulls were begging, as usual, and the group we saw here were almost intimidated by them. Two young men were kiteboarding, a very fascinating thing to watch, for while the wind was blowing pretty much parallel to the shoreline, they would make a run way out into the sea then return to almost exactly the point where they started. Must be fun. If you are young and fit, that is.

That meal sounds so incredibly good! Pity we don't get food like that around home. I'm sure that wind or kite surfing would be fun, but it's for the younger set. :)

Enjoy that seafood while you can! Us mid westerners don't ever get good fresh seafood like that. I'm jealous!

Chuck--Kite surfing is fun to watch. Try it? I don't think so.

Lin--The food is definitely one of the attractions that S. Texas has for us.
