Gosh, it is hard to believe that another week has come and gone and that it is almost March.
With all of our projects completed, I thought we might be looking for something to do. Quite the contrary...we seem to find something to keep us busy everyday.
On Tuesday, our Weight Watchers group got together for our weekly meeting. And, lunch at Jason's Deli is always a treat.
The weather is cooperating beautifully, so pool time is a must on most days.
Our weekly craft group made
recipe binders this week.
And, then there was our trip
to Port Isabel to Pirates Landing. We were treated to a
lunch out on the deck, with a
few overhead guests.
After being entertained by
a fire eating pirate, it was time to
board ship for our trip around the Laguna Madre.
We passed under the
Queen Isabella Causeway and were on our way.
We were named official pirates after getting our
mustaches and a
hand painted tattoo.
While out on the high seas, we enjoyed watching some of the
local residents playing around in the water.
A trip around
Long Island, through the
swing bridge, gave us a great view
of South Padre Island.
Soon, we were rounding
bend at Port Isabel and made ready to dock just beyond
After our trip to sea and before boarding our bus, we had time to enjoy another group of
A great day.
The rest of our days are filled with...
Mark continuing to putter around finding projects to keep him busy. I am still loving line dancing and have learned so many new dances.
Kathy has been busily working on my stained glass window, and it is
taking shape quite nicely.
To finish off the week, today, we participated with 12 others in a
chili cook off. While we were getting our chili tables set up, others
were getting the cornbread and desserts ready.
After all the
tasting and voting, the favorite was
Dave and Bob's goat chili.
My chicken chili came in 4th. What a fun day and a great way to finish off another great week.
