Hanging with Friends

Rockport, Texas
Saltwater Flats RV Resort
Weather Condition; High 67 Low 51, SUNNY

Last week the weather here was cold and rainy. We didn’t do much of anything but lay around. The rain finally stopped and the sun came out.

Things are looking better, this is our forecast 

Wednesday was the Ladies Luncheon. It was a salad luncheon. Everyone brought something to add to a tossed salad and Dawn made chicken gumbo. Everyone seemed to enjoy the lunch. It’s hard to go wrong when you build your own salad!

 Thursday we drove to the post office to mail a few things and we stopped for lunch.

On Friday, Dawn and I did some shopping. We checked out some of the Mom and Pop shops along the bay. It was something to do. We needed to get out and stretch our legs.

Saturday Dawn got up early and did laundry. We later went to Paws & Taws for a gourmet food and art sale with friends, Anita and Bette. While we were there, I won a door prize!  The prize was a free buffet lunch at Butter Churn Buffet. Yummy!

We left there and drove over to Market Days in Rockport. Market Days is held every 3rd Saturday. It’s an open air market at the bay. They have many different types of venders, most being locals selling their wares. You can purchase most anything at Market Days, such as hand crafted items, metal art, wood art, jams & Jellies, jewelry, hats, t-shirts and much more.

We returned home and spent the rest of the day veggin out!

Later in the evening we were sitting outside enjoying the wonderful weather when our neighbors Peter and Judy came by. We were talking and somehow the subject of hamburgers came up and we decided to go to JD’s Seafood for dinner. 

I realize we were talking about hamburgers and I mentioned we went to JD’s Seafood, that’s because JD’s has the best burgers around.

Dawn and Peter ordered burgers. Judy had the fried oyster poor boy and I had chicken fried chicken. The food is wonderful and the portions are generous.   

We noticed a group of older men leaving the restaurant that were all wearing matching shirts. I fell out laughing when I noticed what was printed on the back of their shirts. 

 Way too FUNNY!!! They were more than accommodating when I asked if I could take a picture of their shirts.
