Wildlife, Beach, Games

We headed out in several cars to visit  the Aransas Pass Wildlife Refuge. Donna and Nolan drove over with us.  After viewing the visitors center we started on our drive.

It was a perfect day for this 16 mile auto tour with lots of stops and lookouts.  Once back at the visitors center, we all regrouped and made a plan to head to a late lunch.

For the weekend we played alot of card games up at the activity room.

Yesterday we headed to Port Aransas for the beach. We expected it to be a great beach day but once there we were a bit chilly with the winds blowing.  Instead of lounging most of us opted to stroll along the waters edge.

From the beach Mac, Netters, Kevin and I headed to do a little sightseeing and shopping.  We ended at the Brewery for a light lunch and met up with Donna and Nolan. After lunch it was off to catch the ferry back over to Rockport.

We arrived back at the campground in time to get things ready for our salad get together.  Everyone brought lots of healthy food!   We ate and socialized for awhile and then called it a night.
