My vacation view
Golden Gulf waves
Me sitting on the best balcony ever
Sturdy deck chair
Watching gulls wheel over hot bright sand
hearing their laughter
Sea breeze ruffles my hair
giant tanker ships far away
pelicans cruising in
armadas of four or more
people wading, surfing
fishing, and flying kites
(these words describe a June 2013 trip to Port Aransas, Texas and a trip I have been fantasizing about taking since the pandemic began)

Very sweet. It’s almost like being there 🌞
Thanks! Almost like being there…
Reading along I got more and more in the mood to be on the coast again. We like to go during the winter/spring months … I like being near the water, not so much getting into it …
That’s an amazing photo full of energy and at the same time swooshing me with a sense of tranquility … like the birds have taken charge of action, everyone else just relax! (And dream.)
Thank you Jazz! I think I posted this on my blog to get me motivated to actually get down there as soon as possible.
Hi Betty – I couldn’t see any pictures except the seagulls! Is there a fix or something I need to do? I tried clicking on the captions but nothing happened. I’m so very disappointed!!!
There is only the seagull photo this time. Maybe you can conjure up the other visuals in your imagination…(I would have posted more photos but was unable to find what I wanted…a sign that my “stuff” needs even more organizing so I can find what I want)
This encapsulates my experiences at Port A. I have a special fondness for the ‘armadas’ of pelicans. Thank you for taking me there.
Thank you Marcia! Somewhere I have a photo I took of a line of pelicans, but could not find it to use for the blog.
Thank you for sending the link to your new posting. I tried to post this comment, âThank you Betty. I always enjoy your musings and photographs. The seagull is amazing – so crisp and clear I can almost hear him sreechingâ but word press wouldnât let me. It said another account was using email@example.com . But thatâs me. 🙂 Couldnât figure out what to do so am sending the comment directly to you.
Thank you for keeping me in the loop in the loop because I love reading and looking at your blogs!
Thank you Carol! And actually your original comment did get through.
Excellent photo. Thanks for taking me back to Port Aransas. Good memories.
Thanks for your kind words VJ! It is one of my favorite places.
