Hot Fun in the Summertime!

We went to Mustang Island, Texas the 10th through the 14th. Saw some old missions and a few produce stands along the way and ended up in the Gulf of Mexico in Port Aransas.

After stopping for a gallon of Daiquiris, we hit the beach. There was a lot of social distancing that we paid for. Every umbrella and chair set up was 50 feet apart. It was mid-week so it wasn’t crowded at all. The waves were great except for a wicked rip current in the shallows.

Apparently, OU Boy is afraid of the ocean but went in anyway. Until a fish swam by. By nightfall, our bodies were beaten to death from surfboards, currents, and sun. I was asleep by ten!

We went to a few beach shops but they all had trump hats for sale and I let them know I would take my business elsewhere. Which I did. Back to my favorite store Roam Port. Picked up some gorgeous Swig cups and a Bibliotheque Paddy Wax candle in Louisa May Alcott. And lots of shrimp! I brought back a cooler full!

By  Saturday there was an hour-long line for the ferry! And no one had on a mask. So we pulled up stakes and drove home. We were sufficiently tanned and waterlogged and emotional. As soon as we passed the Texas – Oklahoma state line I burst into tears and sobbed like a baby. OU Boy pulled over at the one rest area in the state and was in a state!

What is wrong babe? I HATE THIS STATE SO BAD!!! Please just take me back to Texas and I’ll call Cynthia!  It was so dramatic.

So since then, I have been doing little work because I had long vacation nails to match my swimsuit and I can’t type shit! I did make this yummy Rhubarb Crisp with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream!

Stay Safe and Be Kind!

  1. Glad you had a safe holiday. It sounds like it was a lot of fun. I love that you wouldn’t shop in the stores with Trump merchandise. When I was in Florida earlier this year, I was the same.

  2. Glad you had a short break and sad it ended in tears. But I hope you had fun by the beach though. Take care and regardless of what others do not do in terms of safe measures against Covid, you keep your mask on and stay away from crowds. Blessings and Garfield hugs.
