Goodbye for now, Mustang Island.

♫ TIME TO SAY GOODBYE ♫

After an amazing seven months at various locations here on gorgeous Mustang Island, it’s time to hitch up the RV and move on down the road.

One of my personal goals for 2016 is to haul the RV outside of the Texas state line, so this is a step in the right direction!

While I’m sad to leave Port Aransas, I’m equally excited about the new adventures yet to come…

Here are a few final photos from Mustang Island, 2016… See ya down the road!

Is This Your Granny?

02162015_SweetGrandmaI met a sweet, soft-spoken lady in her late 70s/early 80s while walking on the beach at Port Aransas on Mustang Island, Texas, back in February 2015.

This gentle lady was ever-so-slowly collecting shells and we started to chat.

She told me that she was gathering the shells to make a hanging shell display for each her two teenaged grandsons. I could tell she put thought into every individual shell, to make sure it was the best of the best for her grandsons.

I didn’t realize that her reflection was in the photo of this shell at the time, but when I offered her the shell for her project, she accepted.

A second shell I offered her didn’t “make the cut” for her collection. She was very particular about the quality, color and size of shell.

As I left the beach about an hour later, this dedicated granny was still there, so I snapped these three photos from afar.

Is this your Grandma?

02162015_SweetGrandmaFor three months, my RV was happily parked in the charming Gulf Coast town of Port Aransas, TX.

One morning about a month ago, I met a sweet, soft-spoken lady in her late 70s/early 80s walking on the beach.

She was ever-so-slowly collecting shells to make a hanging shell display for each her two teenaged grandsons.

I didn’t realize that her reflection was in the photo of this shell at the time, but when I offered her the shell for her project, she accepted.

As I left the beach about an hour later, this dedicated granny was still there, so I snapped the three photos from afar.

I wish I could get these photos to her grandsons so they could fully realize how much effort, work & love are going into their future gifts!
