Fun, Fun Fun!!

Fun, Fun Fun!!

Sunday, February 5 - Super Bowl Sunday (Mercedes, TX)


Today is a cold, windy and wet day. The temperatures dropped 30 degrees since lunch yesterday, its only 49 degrees outside. We are sitting here with the fireplace going to help take the chill off.

I am going to bake a cake for later and making white chicken chili for dinner. I am sure we will spend most of the day just snacking.

Bob, Janet, Jesse and myself made a trip to South Padre Island on Friday. Ed and Marilyn are in Missouri spending time with their children and grandchildren.

Our 1st stop was Dirty Al's for lunch. Bob ordered oyster shooters as an appetizer.

We all ordered our lunch having baskets of fried seafood with French fries. It was yummy!

We walked around the Marina looking at the boats and birds.

Then we rode through Isla Blanca Park Campground that is located in Cameron County Park System. We paid out $4 entrance fee and enjoyed driving through the streets. we wondered how much the sites were so we stopped and talked with a man that was sitting out in the sun. He told us where the office was which is out side of the park and we headed there to get info. We were all surprised that the monthly rate was very reasonable.

Afterward we drove down Padre Blvd to the area that had kites flying. This weekend was the annual Kite Flying Festival. The small kite in the middle is actually flying the big round kite on the right. It was such a surprise that it was able to do that.


All 4 of us seemed to enjoy watching the kites fly in the wind.


We were invited by one of the flyers to give it a try and were given a quick lesson.



We then proceeded on to beach access #5 and parked, set up our chairs and enjoyed the ocean with drinks. The tide was in so there wasn’t very much beach.




On the way back to the Resort we stopped at Dairy Queen for a treat. We also stopped at the Bobz World to look around and make a few purchases.

Saturday Jesse made us cheese omelets for breakfast with toast and OJ. After we got showers we took a ride over to Lowes and Office Depot. We also stopped at the liquor store for a few purchases.

We had made plans with Bob, Janet, Heinz and Irene to meet over at the library card room to play games. It was raining out when we picked up H&I at 6:30 and didn’t get home until a little after 11:00pm. We played cards, had snacks and drinks and lots of laughs. Jesse and I enjoyed the evening very much.

Jesse is looking forward to watching the Super Bowl and I look forward to commercials and 1/2 time.

Everyone have a GREAT day!

Great times in the sun sand and surf ! Betty and I also enjoy the kite flying when there. It's mild this Winter so we are staying in S/w Arkansas working on our docking port. Soon, we'll fish for a few weeks before Colorado and the Rockys ! Enjoy !

What great weather you are enjoying at the beach. It is so much fun to fly kites. We have not done that in a long time and your post has encouraged me to go go out and fly one soon.
