On Monday, everyone but Jimmie, Pat, and I were headed out. Jimmie had some fishing plans and Pat and I decided to spend some time checking out things in Rockport.
We parked and walked around the downtown area. This shop had all these cute decorations out front.
There were several interesting murals.
We went into several shops with lots of interesting decor. This horse is all made from driftwood.
A chair to relax in if you need a rest......
The Rockport harbor has lots of boats at the docks. Sure could easily live aboard this one.
The Texas Maritime Museum is an interesting place to visit.
The Art Gallery building didn't survive the last hurricane but the beautiful statues outside endured. The Gallery is now in another building downtown but the statues are still in a park area right by the harbor.
The harbor is home to working boats and pleasure boats.
The Big Blue Crab did not survive the last hurricane. It used to be part of a restaurant before it was adopted by the city and located near the Blue Water Swimming Beach. It took some time but this new crab has taken up where the old Blue one used to be.
Now I really am off to Blanco State Park tomorrow morning. It is a small but very busy park and this is the first time I have been able to get reservations even in the middle of the week. Making reservations 5 months in advance just doesn't work for me unless it is for a rally.
