Adventure returns!

Port Aransas

Port Aransas and Aransas Pass

I’m going to the Gulf! :D

I was very pleased to have met the Med (aka the Mediterranean Sea), and now I get to greet the Gulf (the Gulf of Mexico, that is), by way of Aransas Pass, Texas. I just booked a night through Airbnb, for me and my dog to stay at a beautifully rustic ranch near the beach – as a birthday treat to myself :) I actually got four days off from work next week, and I’ll use the first day to relax, maybe run some errands; day 2 I’ll drive down to the coast, check into my digs, go get acquainted with the 80 degree waters, and explore the town a bit; day 3 I’ll awake to warm sea breezes for my bday, have a nice breakfast, and drive back to Austin, then probably hit up a favorite dive or maybe a new watering hole; and day 4 will be a bonus day of ease. Ahhh, I do enjoy a leisurely pace ;)

I am stoked to be exploring again! I will try to get a couple good photos, and I’ll be sure to share the adventure – stay tuned!

Independence

It’s American Independence Day, and I will not be participating in the festivities. I will be working. I find it fitting, though. For one thing, I’m told the City usually does the fireworks show on the water, right downtown, but as the park across the way (which would have a marvelous view, with the buildings and Capitol as backdrop) is under renovation, the show will be put on at an alternate location this year. But aside from that, I feel that it is appropriate that I shall be barred from celebrating, as I myself have not yet regained my own independence. I hope that by this time next year, I will be more fully able to enjoy this blessed holiday. And it is a good one. I am very grateful to have had the privilege of living in this fine country, and enjoying its many freedoms. Happy 4th of July, y’all! ;)
