Addie’s Take: March 26-April 15

We went to a beach town called Port Aransas near Corpus Christi. After we got settled in at the campground we went to Tortuga’s Saltwater Grill. I got a crab cake and it was really good.

The campground area reminded me of Hilton Head Island in SC. The dogs were really tired. They picked their favorite spots on the couch and passed out. Chance choose the spot with the most pillows and Caper choose the spot next to him.

Makenzie came to visit us in Port Aransas. We picked her up from the Corpus Christi airport and went to eat at Ninja Mochi. The Korean corn dogs were amazing and the boba tea was also delicious.

They also had donuts. These donuts were unique shaped like circles or rings. They were pretty good but not as good as regular donuts.

The sunsets at Port Aransas were very beautiful.

We tried to go for a walk on the beach, but we didn’t stay very long because of the high winds and washed up jelly fish. The dogs were a little confused and disappointed.

The next day we took the dogs to the beach. They ran around and played for a long time. I forgot Chance’s ball, but they still had a good time at the beach. It was a lot of fun playing with the dogs at the beach.

On a couple of the days there were Portuguese Man’o war on the beach. We couldn’t stay at the beach very long or take the dogs because you can get stung on your foot and it is very poisonous. It would mean a trip to the hospital and none of us wanted that.

Trout Street restaurant was one of our favorites. The stuffed shrimp were really good and banana cream pie was amazing.

There was a fun beach and surf shop, we got souvenirs.

One day was cool and cloudy so we went to the ceramic pottery shop. Mak painted a vase, Dad painted a fish, Mom painted a turtle and I painted dolphins.

I named the dolphins, Caper and Chance. Caper dolphin is the one with darker paint and Chance dolphin has lighter paint.

We took Mak back to the airport to fly to NC. It was great to see Makenzie. I hope we get to see her again soon.

We left Port Aransas and arrived in Galveston. The campground had a pool and a lazy river. The lazy river was chilly, but once my body was numb, it felt pretty good.

Don and Mel came to visit us for their spring break. We hung out on the RV and then went out to dinner.

The dogs and I love hanging outside, enjoying the beach view.

The next day was Mel’s Birthday. We celebrated her birthday on the RV and then went out to eat. It was also Easter.

We went to a brewery. They had arcade games. Don and I went up against each other.

I played another game of air hockey, this time I went up against Mel.

Don and Mel had a pool at their condo next door to our campground. We had a pool day. Dad and Don got donuts and kolaches (hotdogs in yeast bread). They were really good. Dad and Don also brought lunch to the pool later in the day. I had gumbo, while everyone else had sandwiches. Mine was delicious. We swam in the hot tub, it felt really nice. The pool felt really nice too. It was a fun day.

We went to Galveston Brewery. It had a nice outside area and homemade lemonade, which was really cool. It was a really fun day.

We took the dogs to the beach for a morning walk. They had fun.

Don and Mel went to the airport; it was time to say goodbye. It was great to see them. Looking forward to seeing them again soon.
