Port Aransas Mardi Gras Parade

Rockport, Texas
Saltwater Flats RV Resort
Weather Condition; High 74 Low 44, Sunny

The sun is shining and we’ve been out and about.
On Tuesday we spent the day running errands. We had to get some paperwork notarized for our summer gate attendant jobs. We drove to Rockport City Hall and a nice lady there notarized it for us.

We returned home and emailed all our paperwork to the necessary people. Finally, I think we’re finished with that.

Later in the day, Dawn, Marsha, Anita and I drove over to Port Aransas for the Mardi Gras parade.  We were told it was a fun parade.
We drove over early enough so we could get a good place. We found a great corner near where the parade started. We sat in our chairs and watch people until the parade started.









The Port Aransas Mardi Gras parade is made up of mostly decorated golf carts. The parade lasted about an hour and was a lot of fun.
After the parade we drove to Dairy Queen for dinner.

While we were gone to the parade someone strung beads all over our site. We think we might know who the robed bandit might be!


Last night Dawn, Pauline and I drove over to Port Aransas to Kody’s for dinner. On Wednesday night they have All-You-Can-Eat shrimp for $12.99. They start serving at 3:00. We got there a little before 4:00.
 
They serve some BIG shrimp! It was delicious. The shrimp is fried and served with fries and coleslaw.

 I could only eat one order (6). Dawn had 12 and Pauline 10. We were STUFFED.
After dinner, we drove over to the beach. Dawn and Pauline walked over a mile while I took pictures.
















This morning we got up early. We drove our friend Judy to the Corpus Christi airport. She’s flying
home a week or so. We then drove her husband, Peter to the eye doctor for a checkup. He had cataract surgery yesterday.
After the doctor checkup we went for breakfast at IHOP.

We have a squirrel that’s terrorizing our fur kids. He doesn’t seem to be afraid of the dogs at all. He sometimes climbs the tree beside the fiver and looks in the window at the dogs.

  5. That picture of your dogs looking at the squirrel is hilarious. I love small town Mardi Gras parades...they are so creative and laid-back.
