Sea gulls, sand, surf, my bride and Jesus. It was a good day!

When Cora and I were younger than we are now, we use to load up my ’69 Camaro and head for the beach for the day.  We were in our late teens and dating.  That was a short almost 40 years, ago.  Even before that, my dad and I would load up a ’58 Chevy and head down for fishing.  So, Port Aransas is full of wonderful memories.
I took last week off from work to give my head and its’ related migraines a break.  Last night, I thought what better way to wrap up my time off than a trip to the beach.  It is about a 3 hour drive, but the time flies when you have good company.  Cora is the best!  We made it to the ferry boat and enjoyed the short trip over the channel in beautiful sunshine.
We had shrimp three different ways at Virginia’s and headed for the beach.  It was sunny, but a little cool.  We wrapped up in towels, sat in our beach chairs and enjoyed the sound of the waves.  The sea gulls kept me amused with my camera and Cora enjoyed a good book.  It was all simple and refreshing.
In a couple hours, we packed, kissed and headed back.  It was a great day.  I think we need to do this more often and likely will.

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".

  1. Hi Archie;

    I’m jealous. You keep on tempting me like this with the grand life you lead, I may pack up my bags and move back down to old Mexico where the beaches are great, the feeling laid back and weather balmy year round.

    I miss the ocean, having had a home next to it for so many years and having lived on a boat for a year.

    Then again, I wouldn’t have a place to dig out the snow with the replacement for my motorcycle, Johnny Deere. 🙂

  2. Archie,
    That’s an amazing picture! How fun to be with your bride, too, and just pause to breathe in your Father’s love and presence. Have a blessed week.
