Valentine’s Day 2012

Valentine’s Day seems to be a big deal here at Estes RV Resort :)  Last evening we caravanned to Virginia’s in Port Aransas with 28 of our friends and neighbors for dinner. The park celebrates everyone’s anniversary on February 14th. We started with cocktails, then hors d'oeuvres. Oysters on the half shell seemed to be popular :)

While everyone was waiting on their food, I went around and took couples pictures. We even had 2 couples celebrating their anniversary on Valentine’s Day!

Wanda and Darrell celebrated their 58th!

Jim and Marilyn celebrated their 47th!

Unfortunately, I was so busy photographing everyone else, I forgot to have someone get our picture! So here is one from the day we got married.


Man, we were young! And thin! :)

We came back to the park for dessert and coffee. A good time was had by all :) We hope that you, too, had a wonderful Valentine’s Day.


Thanks for stopping by. Turtle


  1. It does look like you had a great Valentine's Day party. We're glad you're enjoying the Texas coast. We're thinking about you and enjoying your blog posts.

  2. What a great time for everyone!! Really like that GOOD LOOKING young couple..... Don'tchaknow & Youbetcha ;o))

  3. Very nice! Love the picture of you and Rick!

    Bruce and Laura

  4. That's a LOT of folks celebrating their anniversaries. I was smiling at how many of them were leaning in and wondering why.

    I wouldn't even want to look at a picture that young of me. Not sure I'd recognize myself. How does this all happen so fast??

  5. Those 'blast from the past' photos certainly bring back good memories ... and are usually good for a laugh or two as well.

  6. That's a nice way to celebrate everyone's anniversary. Nice shot of all the lovebirds -- especially the last, and youngest, couple. ;-)

  7. what a novel idea to celebrate everyones anniversary on V day...:) looks like you all had a wonderful time...;)

  8. What an awesome idea and how fun! Keep us posted on plans so we can hopefully connect before both heading out of TX this spring.


I would love to hear from you! Please leave a comment.
