Yesterday, we drove to the ferry that would take us over to Port Aransas. It’s a very short ferry ride and it’s free.
After exiting the ferry, we took a right hand turn and followed it all the way to this!
When in Rome, err, I mean Texas, do as they do…drive the beach!
This was one of my favorite things to do when we lived in TX way back when.
I had no idea it was still allowed…
But it is here :)
Not only can you drive the beach, you can camp on it!
You do need a permit…
I have no idea what the fee is, but this fellow plans to stay awhile, I’d say. Check out all that solar!
We also walked the seawall in the park; notice no railings.
There were dolphins all over the place in that water. Do you think I could capture just ONE? Nope. Not fast enough :(
The marina was pretty cool though.
After all that, we had worked up an appetite, so we headed to Hooks Bar BQ and Grill for some good ole Texas BBQ. It was excellent. Rick had the brisket platter and I had the combo: brisket and ribs. Well, as luck would have it, I didn’t remember the camera until our plates had been licked clean :) Maybe next time :) We will definitely be back.
Our buddy here, wished us farewell as we lined up to take the ferry back home.
It was a wonderful day! Thanks for stopping by.
