A Great Day with Friends

Wow, we woke to a beautiful day! Mark was the first one out walking and came back to report that is was warm outside. And it was only 8 a.m. Pretty soon, Ellie, Jim, Karen, Donnie, and I were out getting our laps in. I could these days every day. Jim was then off to do some laundry while Mark tried to figure out why our hot water heater didn't want to work on propane. Finally, we had to call the RV tech, who is suppose to be here tomorrow morning to take a look at it. Thank goodness for mobile techs.

We had planned to go to the Big Fisherman for the $2.25 lunch today, but upon arrival the line was all the way out the door, on the porch, around the corner, down the side of the building and almost to the parking lot, and it was almost 1:00. Too long to wait today, we were starving. So, we decided to go to the Diner. It wasn't the Big Fisherman, but it was yummy.

After a great lunch, we made a quick stop back by the RV park, so Karen could get her camera.
Then we headed over to Port Aransas to do some geocaching. This was a new adventure for Donnie and Karen. Ellie and I picked out 4 caches and loaded them to the GPS's.

Before we could get started on our geocaching, someone spied these guys out in the bay. They were having a great time playing in the waves just ahead of a big ship.

Jim found the first geocache. That was right after Ellie said she had her hand on it first. LOL

On to the next one. Mark found this one before and replaced it before we all got there. Donnie then found it too. We signed the log and off we went.

Our third cache was a level three difficulty and we all left scratching our heads. No luck. Great job in hiding this one. Oh, well, off to find our fourth and final cache for the day. It was located somewhere

close to this sign. Mark, Jim, and Karen gave out on us, but with determination Ellie's GPS got real close to it and I found it. It was a great hide and a great find!

We then wandered through one T Shirt shop. I got a new ankle bracelet and Ellie got a new toe ring and anklet. Karen and I then wanted to go down to a little shop, "Popsicle Toes", but they were already closed. Oh, well, an excuse to get to back to the island!
What a great day with great friends.

  1. I know you are having sooo much fun. I will have to learn about this geo...whatever and see how to do it. I need to load up the GPS for all my tools so I know where to find them day after day.
